One Pair of Shoes

Open your closet.  How many pairs of shoes do you wear in a week? How many pairs of shoes do you have that just sit there idle?  What if you only had one pair – for all occasions?  Oh, my!  Which pair would you pick?

Most of us can’t imagine only having one pair of shoes.  Further, can you imagine not owning any?  Yet there are many people around the globe who would be grateful for just one pair.

For this reason abellaYoga is raising money for Soles4Souls.   Soles4Souls is an international charity that has distributed over 6 million pairs of shoes (new & gently worn) to people in need around the globe.

For the next 45 days, I will be spreading awareness about Soles4Souls and the drive to get shoes to those in need.  The culmination of my campaign is Saturday, January 23rd, 2010 (aka Yoga Day USA).  On this day I will be teaching an energizing yoga class in Alexandria, VA in celebration of Yoga Day USA and Soles4Souls.  Visit for class details.

Donate today! A donation of just $25 dollars can make a difference in more than 10 lives.  Again, imagine how different your life would be without shoes.
