Hello HHSP Scholars!
My name is Broderick Thompson and I am the co-president/founder of the Samaritan’s Feet Club at IU. Samaritan’s Feet is a national, nonprofit organization that gives shoes to underprivileged children around the world. It’s estimated that 300 million kids live barefoot every day but a $5 to Samaritan’s Feet will equip one of these kids with a pair of shoes.
I started the Samaritan’s Feet Club last year to support this organization. We had a lot of success last year and we’re looking to do even more this year! Our call-out meeting for 2010 will be on September 29th at 7pm in Woodburn 120. If you can’t make the meeting but would still like to be involved, please contact me at brothomp@Indiana.edu
