I have partnered with Hawaiian Falls to bring you this post. All opinions are my own and are honest!

June 16th is National Flip Flop day and you can pay it forward and SAVE money on your Hawaiian Falls admission ticket. Simply donate to the Shoe & Flip Flop Drive by bringing a pair of new children’s shoes (sneakers preferred) or flip flops to Hawaiian Falls on Friday, June 16, and get Kids Price Admission – $21.99. Shoes and flip flops will be donated to a Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls.

As a adoptive/foster mom I absolutely love this! Sometimes kids in orphanages have NOTHING and share everything. This is an opportunity for them to have something for themselves.

New shoes put children on a path to:

Health. Shoes protect against disease and infection. In many developing countries, children walk barefoot in muddy, rocky terrain to gather clean water or go to school. Parasites and diseases, including hookworm, jiggers and tetanus, can enter the body through cuts in the feet. These illnesses can stunt a child’s growth and development, as well as cause lifelong mental damage.

Education. Shoes lower barriers to school attendance. Many schools around the world require children to wear shoes to attend, but for many poverty-stricken families, shoes are a luxury they cannot afford. Studies also show that children who are healthy are more likely to be successful in school and have higher attendance, increasing their chances of obtaining an education and rising out of poverty.

Hope. Shoes demonstrate worth and God’s love to orphans and vulnerable children. Typically, children in orphanages share everything —they do not have a single possession of their own. New shoes provide hope for these children that someone out there cares about them and loves them unconditionally.

Opportunity. Shoes connect families to holistic ministry. For many families, receiving shoes is often the first step to connect them to critical services, ministry and mentoring at the Buckner Family Hope Centers in their communities. Hope Center staff help families make plans for transformation and walk alongside them as their lives are transformed.

Why new shoes?
New shoes last longer, and as a gift to a child with few possessions, they communicate volumes about his or her inherent worth. Simply put, we think the children we serve are worth it.

This is the one and only big pay it forward that Hawaiian Falls has scheduled this year! I love that they are supporting such a worthy cause and rewarding your gift with a discounted admission!
