Hope is more than a four letter word. It is a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen. At Samaritan’s Feet, HOPE represents Health, Opportunity, Peace, and Education; a platform for giving back as well as a chance to save children’s lives from soil-transmitted parasites and sickness causes by foot-borne diseases around the world, an opportunity for kids to go to school, and a framework to inject love and peace to hurting communities.
Through the Hope Givers network, incredible like-minded servant leaders will inspire others in the community and enrich the lives of shoeless children locally and around the world. The commitment we ask of you is to raise at least $5,000 in order to serve 250 children with new shoes and a message of hope. This program was created to empower individuals to serve and we thank you for considering this meaningful role to share hope.
Meet Our Samaritan’s Feet Person of the Year: Patrick Thean
“I am humbled to have been selected as Samaritan’s Feet’s Hopegiver of the Year. My only purpose was to put more shoes on children’s feet. We soared past my fundraising goal by 184%. Together, we raised $27,550 and will serve 1,377 children! I’ve supported Samaritan’s Feet for 14 years now because of this direct impact the donations can make. Every $20 donated is equivalent to a pair of shoes so if you like Starbucks – that’s 4 lattes. Many people don’t realize that a pair of shoes can be the difference between life and death. As I encouraged guests at the Barefoot Gala, think about the impact you could make.” – Patrick
