This Week on EE: A Special Invitation

Before sharing this week’s upcoming articles, I want to talk about something a bit more personal, which I hope you’ll become just as excited and passionate about it as I am. :)

For the next 7 days I’ll be participating in a special fundraising event by wearing a pair of The Shoe That Grows. They were invented by a good friend of mine, Kenton Lee, to solve a serious problem which impacts over 300 million children in poverty—lack of shoes.

This unique shoe actually grows along with the child. . . 5 sizes, 5 years. . . and can literally save a life by protecting the child’s feet from disease, injury, and infection, as well as giving better access to education and other much-needed services.

If you have even 30 seconds today, please take a look at my fundraising page or theshoethatgrows.org to learn more about The Shoe, and how we can all help.

Now, let’s get to this week’s schedule!
