I’ve been a follower of i heart faces for awhile now and have either 1) always missed the deadline for the photo to go up or 2) never had the right photo. This week I got lucky on both counts! It’s a non-competition week which means photos are accepted all week. When I saw the theme was barefoot week I knew exactly which photo I wanted to share.
This was taken in Puerto Vallarta on a day trip to Yelapa. We were on the boat on the way back to PV when I looked up and saw these dangling feet from the second level of the boat. This shot always reminds me of lazy summer days.
This week is barefoot week at i heart faces to raise awareness about Soles 4 Souls. Soles4Souls is a Nashville-based charity that collects shoes from the warehouses of footwear companies and the closets of people like you. The charity distributes these shoes free of charge to people in need, regardless of race, religion, class, or any other criteria. Since 2005, Soles4Souls has given away over 7 million pairs of new and gently worn shoes (currently donating one pair every 9 seconds.) The shoes have been distributed to people in over 125 countries, including Kenya, Thailand, Nepal and the United States. Soles4Souls has been featured in Runner’s World, Ladies’ Home Journal, National Geographic’s Green Guide, and The New York Times. It has appeared on CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, BBC, CNN and thousands of regional news outlets across North America. Soles4Souls is a 501(c)(3) recognized by the IRS and donating parties are eligible for tax advantages. Anyone can join our cause, and we need your help.
