Students and Sneakers

By Brandon

Does your student lack confidence and motivation?

Maybe they just need a new pair of sneakers.

Ben Charles founded Saves by B, an organization that provides a pair of shoes to someone for every pair purchased. He was recently quoted in Life+Times saying, “For me, sneakers always gave me confidence and motivation, so I know how important it is for young people to have them.”

The tear-jerking reality is not “families are being forced to choose between shoes and sneakers for their children”

We should grieve the fact that there are adults whose childhood narratives read, “sneakers always gave me confidence and motivation.”

That is a crisis.
