I'm Roberta Little. I entered a contest and WON!! For some unknown reason, I felt the need to write 500 words or less about how I might use 100 pairs of Crocs (the shoes) to make a difference in my community. Oh, I forgot to tell you. This contest is sponsored by O, The Oprah Magazine and Crocs.
If you watched the YouTube video of our first post, you understand my plan to raise awareness about children experiencing homelessness and the transformational power of art. There were so many of you interested in helping, I am thrilled and amazed. I am busy working on my plan, but I thought you might have fun creating your own. The Sole Challenge is for you to initiate, design, and document.
There are more then 1,783 homeless students in the Lancaster area.
Let’s show Oprah and the world Lancaster cares!
I can’t do it alone. I’m asking you to “Step up,” and join
