Would you like to change the world while exploring Costa Rica at the same time? Travel4Souls offers you an experience of a lifetime with the opportunity to see the difference they’re making in person. Travel with them to Costa Rica this May 13-17 and help distribute shoes and clothing to local children while learning more about local culture and experiencing some adventures along the way.
How many pairs of shoes do you own? I have four pairs of boots, 1 pair of tennis shoes, a pair of water shoes and a pair of dress shoes. That’s seven pairs more than most children in third world countries. So many of us take our shoes for granted. It seems like an easy thing to do, just go to the store or the mall or hop online and buy a pair.
Not everyone has this luxury, there are children in countries like Costa Rica, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, India and Africa that don’t own even 1 pair of shoes. For those kids shoes are a luxury. Travel4Souls knows shoes are critical to prevent the spread of disease and a requirement for kids to attend school in some areas.
Since 2005, Soles4Souls has delivered over 17 million used and new shoes throughout the United States and over 127 countries. So that pair of shoes gathering dust in your closet, dig them out and donate them so Soles4Souls can get them to someone in Alabama that lost everything in the tornadoes, or a child in Africa that’s never owned a pair of shoes, because just one pair can make a huge difference in a stranger’s life.
Just imagine how amazing it feels to give a child a pair of shoes. Go to Costa Rica with Travel4Souls and witness the difference a pair of shoes can make in the life of a child. During the five day trip in Costa Rica you’ll travel with a team of 15-25 people to San Jose and experience the local culture, enjoy a nature walk and cruise on a zip lining adventure through the rain forest. You’ll also have the chance to talk with the kids, play with them and learn more about their daily lives. Much more than a vacation, this is a trip that can make a difference in your life and the lives of others.
Deadline to register for the May trip is March 13, 2012 but they’re also planning trips for June, July and August. Learn more about Travel4Souls on Facebook or follow them on Twitter @Soles4Souls to get involved and help them “change the world, one pair at a time.”
