Give a new pair of shoes to a needy child and something magical happens. Lives are transformed.
A young boy opens a shoebox and starts to cry.
Another child hugs the school nurse and says, “This is my very first pair of new shoes ever!”
“I always love to see a child receive the Laces of Love shoes. Their eyes light up and they start to dance!” says a school principal.
“I saw my student actually hugging the shoes because he was so overwhelmed with joy!” says a fifth grade teacher.
This collection of personal stories about children whose lives have been touched by the Laces of Love Charitable Foundation, Inc. will move and inspire you. They were written to honor the children who have put cardboard in their old shoes, who have taped their sneakers together, or have tried to glue and fix their worn out shoes. The connection created between the kindness of others and a needy child is inspiring.
