Donate Shoes for Afghan Girls

My friend Scott with three Afghan girls.  Note the lack of shoes.

Do you want to make a small overall yet hugely personal difference for Afghanistan?  A friend of Catholicgauze is currently in eastern Afghanistan and is organizing a drive for new or used shoes for Afghan girls.  He has encountered countless Tajik, Hazara, and Pashtun girls who lack footwear (Afghan families unfortunately only invest in the footwear of sons).  If you want to donate shoes contact me at catholicgauze[at]gmail[dot]com and I will reply with the address.

Do you want just new ones, or are you OK with used ones, if still in OK condition?

Smeeko,
Scott says used shoes are just as good as new (these girls have nothing at all).
