Chaos and a Quick Update....

We have been remiss in writing. Takes a lot of time and focus to open a store! (what a surprise!)A quick update re: Haiti and the SF Avon 2 Day Breast Cancer Walk.
Monte has lived in Ghana and has participated in house-building mission trips in Mexico, yet he was unprepared for what he saw in Haiti. The devastation was vast....from the sights to the smells to the living conditions of the people. He will blog soon about this in detail. Check out www.soles4souls.org to see the video of the trip. SOLES4SOULS provided some comfort, compassion, humor and shoes to many children! Now on a more local event- April and Jenny survived the 2 day, 39 mile walk up and down and around and up and down some more Avon Walk. We are still processing this very emotional event. There are some incredible people out there!A special shout out to the guys on their Harleys all decked out in pink who helped direct traffic and cheer us on at every mile! We will also blog in more detail later....just wanted to say thanks to all donors...we contributed nearly $6,000 towards the $5.5 million total for the weekend! Our new favorite things that helped us get through the weekend:
MIZUNO Inspires, BALEGA socks, BROOKS shorts and RUNNING SKIRTS capris!!!!!!! Very comfortable and almost blister free!


  1. Thank you so much for promoting our cause. It's true that Haiti is still in need of a lot of help.Here is a link to our plan in helping restore the country: http://www.soles4souls.org/news/2010/06-16/a-letter-from-the-founder---update-on-our-help-to-haiti
