Good News (11/20) - New Shoes Campaign Explodes

posted by AJ Carson - 

Teaching assistant Bethany Martin decided to celebrate her birthday by doing acts of kindness for others instead of collecting gifts for herself. She’s sent letters of appreciation to different people every day, delivered flowers to law enforcement officers, and now her biggest goal is to get new shoes for all the kindergarten students at her school in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

After Martin saw students coming to school in torn and worn-out shoes, she measured each child’s feet, asked about styles and colors they like, and started raising money to get a new pair of shoes for each of the 80 kindergarten students. But when her fundraising reached over $17,000, she decided to get new shoes for every kid at the school - all 620 of them!
