Remember those warm spring afternoons sitting in front of your home with a
folding table, a few chairs and your friends flagging neighbors down, trying
to interest them in an ice cold glass of fresh squeezed lemonade for only 25
cents?

 
Now you can relive those fun filled afternoons and help children in need simply by hosting a lemonade stand during Big Sunday weekend May 1-2! Big Sunday is an annual community building event when volunteers of every age and from every walk of life work together throughout California to help others. 

 
This year, Shoes That Fit has been chosen to be one of five charity beneficiaries of the 4th Annual When Life Gives You Lemons Make a Lemonade Stand project. Beginning April 1, you can sign up online by clicking "Project Sign Up" or contact the Big Sunday Lemonade Stand Coordinator Melissa Toy Ozeas.

 
What could be an easier or more fun way to help a child in need? After all, doesn't every child deserve shoes that fit?

My shoes are comfortable. They’re mules, faux snakeskin of some sort, and easy to get on and off. I love these shoes. I have another pair that’s similar to these, and of course I have a pair for walking, running, dancing, etc.etc. I bought all these new, I can do that. But here at Shoes That Fit, I’m reminded every day that 1 out of 5 kids here in L.A. live in poverty, and are lucky to have a pair of shoes at all, forget the new thing. I’m told that some of these kids don’t even go to school because of a lack of appropriate shoes and clothing to wear—it’s painful to not fit in. I’m lucky. Are you? Can you buy a pair of shoes for a kid to wear to school? Talk to us.
