In November, our meeting was focused on philanthropy and giving back. Our group got together to create the pieces needed to make shoes for Sole Hope. With one of our members being the owner at a wonderful new space called Roar | St. Louis, it seemed to be the perfect spot.
In the end, we cut and prepared enough material to make almost a dozen pairs of shoes, which then got mailed on to shoemakers and tailors in the local Uganda community to finish the process. If you are encouraged by what you see, and would be interested in having your own Shoe Cutting Party, go here for the details: http://solehopeparty.org/home-parties-planner/. In this time of giving, it sure was a wonderful way to give back.
Until next time,
