Inspirational Selfless Act

Danica Sheppard is an amazing 9-year-old girl that brought in 73 pairs of shoes she has been collecting for the needy! Two years ago, she was inspired not to receive birthday presents but instead receive shoes that she could give to people less fortunate. Danica shared, “I told my mom I had too much “stuff” and I don’t need presents.” The Sheppard family also organized a fundraiser for family and friends to get in free at a local family fun center with the donation of a new pair of shoes. Danica is a true inspiration, to choose giving up birthday presents for herself for shoes for families far away. Danica, along with her brother Will and her mother Carrie, were excited to be able to repack the shoes in OGT boxes. The shoes were put on a shipment that day for Haiti! What blessings for families in Haiti from a 9 year old girl. Thank you! (6/5/2015)
