My heart is so heavy right now. Back in December I painted a pair of shoes for a 14 year old fighter named Caroline. She lost her fight to leukaemia on Saturday. I put my heart and soul into every pair of shoes I paint. When a fighter dies, a part of me dies with them. Please pray and send positive thoughts to Caroline’s family during this difficult time. :(

I am proud to announce that I have painted shoes for 50 Neet Feet fighters as of today. Yay!! This has been such a wonderful journey so far - I’ve loved every second of it and look forward to painting shoes for many more fighters. :) May I challenge each and every one of you reading this to celebrate with me by doing something kind for someone else today. Whether it’s helping your neighbor bring in their groceries, giving up your seat on the bus or using the money you were going to spend on that frappuccino to give to the homeless. It doesn’t matter how big or small, every deed can make a difference :)

Tyler’s Neet Feet! :) I am finally putting up my paints for the night. I was hoping to deliver these shoes personally to this four-year-old fighter tomorrow at noon, but it probably won’t be until sometime next week. :/  Anyway, I am totally stoked anyway and it was so much fun to paint a pair for a girl! (I had a much easier time with this pair ;D) Can’t wait to see the look on her face when she gets these :)

Peach’s Neet Feet

Today, I handed my first pair of hand-painted shoes to Madison Steiner, founder of Peach’s Neet Feet! I am proud to announce that I am now an official artist for Peach’s Neet Feet, a non-profit organization that provides customized, hand-painted canvas sneakers to children with long term illnesses and diseases. 

Shoes for Mason http://www.facebook.com/masonvsleukemia 

I had the privilege of meeting Madison and her brother Corey at the community college I attend, which is how I was made aware of this awesome cause. Since the organization was founded in July of 2011, over 180 pairs have been donated to children in over 30 states! I was immediately inspired by this incredibly selfless act. 

Since I the age of 14, I have had a terrible addiction to canvas shoes and have spent hours of my time drawing all over them with Sharpies. When I heard of Peach’s Neet Feet, I thought: “Brilliant! Why didn’t I think of that!?” I wanted to be on board, because I knew that it would be a great way to be creative and help others at the same time. And for someone like me, nothing beats that!

After watching the Random Act of Kindness video and seeing the look on these children’s faces after receiving a pair of shoes with their name and all of their favorite things on them, it literally brought tears of joy to my eyes. 

It is such an honor to be working with such amazing people. I am so excited to continue designing more pairs to put smiles on the faces of kiddos who need it the most!
