Anyone Traveling?

Please let us know if you know of any church groups or individuals going to a developing country and can take some shoes to those who need them. We have a good supply right now and we want them on FEET instead of in STORAGE. Blessings!

We are way behind in posting but luckily shoes and skivvies are still coming in and going out! If you see shoes on sale (flip flops are being clearanced out RIGHT NOW) please consider us and our efforts to get shoes to children (and adults) who need desperately need them. We have shoes heading to Haiti this month! YAY! We were blessed with a donation to help cover shipping costs, too!

The Second Annual Undy 500 is Underway!

We're off to a late start this year (starting instead of ending on race day), but we're going to do it anyway. Like last year, our goal is to collect 500 undies (tops or bottoms) in the next three weeks. Last year we collected 411. Can we reach the 500 mark this year?

Feel free to post this on your blogs and Facebook pages and email your friends. You can also leave a comment on this blog or mail us at with your numbers, and we will figure out where those skivvies should go.

Thanks in advance for your help!

The Flip Flop Fleet Makes the News!

Sorry for the lack of updates, but our family has grown since we last posted. You can imagine how busy we've been!

Our two oldest kids came home from Haiti much sooner than we anticipated because of the earthquake. Everything they went through inspired our friend's daughter to make the Flip Flop Fleet the focus of her project for school. The following is a report that ran on Twin Cities Live, a local news program:

We hope to have more news to post soon.
