Keen Shoes Rock! 1,500 pairs of shoes donated

Keen Shoes Rock!!! EOR has a wonderful volunteer here in Portland that has given many hours of her time collecting shoes for Ethiopia. She has had collection boxes located in the Portland area and she personally secured a HUGE HUGE donation from Keen Shoes! They donated over 1,500 pairs of shoes! Way to go Keen!! The shoes filled a minivan, Ford pick up and a Tahoe! She will be delivering countless suitcases of shoes when they visit Ethiopia in the near future. EOR will be delivering some of the shoes on behalf of this wonderful volunteer and Keen when we travel in December. The shoes will help girls at Children’s Heaven, Kids at SOS EE Toukoul and several orphanages! EOR is so lucky to have such amazing volunteers! Thanks to *** (she wishes to remain anonymous) for personally taking on this wonderful project! Were proud of you and all our volunteers! We all think Keen Rocks!! Next time your thinking of buying shoes we hope Keen is at the top of your list!! Their generosity is amazing!!

OREGON event

Save the Date for Ethiopian Orphan Relief’s First Annual Dessert & Cocktail Auction, Saturday, May 9th at the North Star Ball Room in Portland, Oregon. This year’s event is called “Lights of Hope.” 

The proceeds from the event will help us provide supplies, infrastructure, and experience for some of the more then 4 million orphans in Ethiopia. Serving the needs of today’s orphaned youth in Ethiopia and providing them with alternatives to life on the streets creates an environment that benefits everyone: the children, their future children and their forever families, should they one day be adopted. Our current projects include playgrounds, sanitation systems, outreach facilities and orphanages.

This years “Lights of  Hope” auction will feature both oral and silent auction items. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on exotic international vacations, Portland Trail Blazer tickets, jewlery, art, celebrity appearances and much more. Reservations are required for the event and tickets are limited.

If you have a item you would like to donate to the auction please contact kim @ethiopianorphanrelief.org or visit http://www.ethiopianorphanrelief.org for more information.
