About whydomyfeethurtsobad

On January 28th, Barrett Keene, a PhD Student at Cornell University, began walking the 3,475 miles between Miami and San Francisco with hopes of speaking to tens of thousands of people to raise awareness about the realities 145 million orphaned and abandoned children face and present opportunities for people to give. Go Walk America will be partnering with The Global Orphan Project (GO Project), to lead individuals and organizations to sponsor school uniforms ($20 each) for orphans and other children living in rags. These children live in communities where they are not allowed to attend school unless they have a uniform. When you sponsor school uniforms, you support 3 things: uniforms (and hence the opportunity to receive an education) for children, job creation in impoverished communities, and orphan care!
