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!

21 days till we leave!!!

This will be my last post until sometime around the 25th of January after we get back. Thank you to anyone and everyone that prayed for me or donated to us. It means a lot to both me and everybody in Oditel. We ended up raising over $7,250 which is crazy for just 100 days. We will be buying shoes for all the kids in two villages. We are buying Bibles for the kids in Oditel. The two public schools in Kapelabyong will be getting shoes as well. We are buying soccer shoes, uniforms, and balls for the village of Oditel. We are giving soccer balls to another village also. And we are exploring the idea of using the leftover money to jump start a shoe company in Oditel. This was all thanks to you guys. Without you none of this would have happened. So thank you again. We will be leaving on the 7th, so please pray that we have a safe trip. Thanks again.        ~Tim

Thank you Portage Central for setting up the fundraiser for my last day and for all the support during my 97 days so far. For those of you that don't go to Portage Central here is the article they put in the announcements today:
 "Sick of the man forcing you to wear shoes?? Fight back, support a great cause, and celebrate with one of your fellow Mustangs. For the past 100 days, Tim Lotz has gone without shoes to raise money and awareness for children in Uganda. Those 100 days come to an end this Monday. Thanks to the work of Hoop’s 3rd hour class, you can join him and celebrate his last day by donating $1 to receive a stylish pair blue booties to wear all day on Monday. Celebrate the dedication of one of your fellow Mustangs and help bring shoes to the children of Uganda."
And if you do go to Portage Central be sure to remember to bring a dollar and buy a pair of booties on Monday. Thanks again everybody.
