I will coach the game against our rival, North Central on January 20th in my bare feet to support Samaritan's Feet. At Lawrence North, we believe in character, commitment, courage and class. That's one of the reasons that I am doing this because Samaritan's Feet embodies those characteristics.
Will you help me raise $1,000, which will put 100 pairs of shoes on the feet of 100 impoverished Indianapolis children.
I am joining thousands of other coaches throughout the country in the “Barefoot for Bare Feet” movement. It involves coaches, governors, business leaders, teachers, pastors and many more using their platforms by performing their jobs barefoot to provide a voice for the 300,000,000 million children who wake every day in their bare feet. From across the nation, college, high school, and community coaches are coaching games in their bare feet and influencing university and high school students and faculty to get involved to help make a difference. Governors from several states and business leaders have gone barefoot to work to help bring awareness to this cause. Through this effort Samaritan’s Feet has raised more than 2,000,000 pairs of new shoes and nearly $2 million dollars.
Samaritan’s Feet is partners with the NCAA, NFHS, NABC, NACDA, NIAAA, WBCA and many other organizations to help us reach our goal. Through these partnerships, thousands of coaches across the country have said YES to the Barefoot Coaching Movement and have changed the lives of children forever … including their own.
Samaritan’s Feet was started 8 years ago,with a goal to put 10 million pairs of shoes on children’s feet in 10 years around the world. Samaritan’s Feet serves the impoverished in over 62 countries around the world and has placed new shoes on the feet of more than 3.5 million children, but we still have a long way to go to reach our goal.
As more coaches stand ‘barefoot’ together, the impact will continue to grow and more children will be given hope.
Will you provide a voice for the 300 million barefoot children around the world?
