Today I stayed home. I got a chance to get my e-mail caught up again which was a good thing because I hate it when it gets behind. In the evening my Mom and I decided to spend a couple of hours to organize the flip flops that she bought for the gypsy children at the village where I work at in Romania. A couple of months ago I mentioned to my Mom about the idea of doing a flip flop collection project for the kids I work with in Romania because a lot of times during the summer months children will just walk outside bare foot because they simply don’t have shoes.
In March my parents and my brother went to the States for the weekend where they spent time with friends at a hotel as a mini winter vacation. When they were there my Mom noticed the flip flops at Old Navy were only 2 pairs for $5 so she decided to get a head start on the project. Today when we looked through all the flip flops that she already bought we discovered that she had a bit too much because some of the sizes did not match the sizes on the list.
I am glad my Mom is very enthusiast about the project! Well we definitely got off to a great start because we already have 18 pairs of flip flops for the children! If you are interested in contributing towards this project please let us know.
