I love a good contest, as my Facebook fans know, but sometimes participating in something bigger is much more fulfilling. Normally "I Heart Faces Photography" hosts a weekly photo contest. It's always great to see so many photographers interpretations of the weekly themes. I rarely actually participate myself, but I love perusing the entries for inspiration.

This week, however, I Heart Faces is doing something a little different. They are doing a non-competitive challenge for a good cause. I happened to have the PERFECT photograph for this weeks theme and decided that not only could I share my photo I could spread the word about this great cause.

Here's a little blurb about Soles4Souls directly from the I Heart Faces Photography Blog Site:

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.

This week's theme is BAREFOOT WEEK and is inspired by Soles4Souls. The photo I chose was one of my daughter when I took her to her first trip to the apple orchard. I plopped her down in the pumpkin patch and she had a blast- LOVING that I was letting her little feet dirty!
