What Am I Doing?
I (Tim Lotz) will be going to Uganda, Africa on January 4th, 2013. Before then I am going to try to raise money for shoes for the kids in Oditel (the village I am going to) because they don't have shoes to walk to school in and there are alot of foot infections. To do this I am going to get pledges for every day I go without shoes. My goal is 100 days. But you can help too. You can make a one time donation on this page. If you don't have that much money you can donate a used pair of flip-flops (flip-flops are best because they don't wear out as fast and they fit more sizes) I will be starting on September 1st. Wish me luck!

Today was my first full day of school, and my first day wearing shoe covers. Today went even better than yesterday. I didn't have any teachers stop me in the halls, and I had alot more kids ask what I was doing. I also had some adults ask. One of the office workers saw me in the hall and asked what I was doing so I gave her my business card. The librarian said she would want to see some pictures when I got back. And the lunch pass inspector said she would donate tomorrow. When I got home my friend invited me to the Night of Destruction at the Kalamazoo Speedway on Satuday. He even called the Speedway to make sure I could go without shoes, so that was cool. Thanks Andrew. I'll post again tomorrow.
