More vigorous than empathy, the feeling commonly gives rise to an active desire to alleviate another’s suffering. It is often, though not inevitably, the key component in what manifests in the social context as altruism. In ethical terms, the various expressions down the ages of the so-called Golden Rule embody by implication the principle of compassion: Do to others as you would have done to you. Ranked a great virtue in numerous philosophies, compassion is considered in all the major religious traditions as among the greatest of virtues.

I am now excited to go to school!

My name is Leola Anifowoshe.  I am the Executive Director of  We are so excited about this blog.  We  have several other blogs that are informative but are not related to this cause.  What makes this blog so exciting is that we are doing something that really makes a difference in people’s lives. 

With the help of all our supporters we are actually enriching people’s lives in a most profound way.  We would like to first acknowledge that we are not taking credit for any good that is done through this organization.  We know that it is through the grace of God and people’s good hearts that has made this vision possible. 

We are further excited about the Shoes4Schools blog because there are so many things we have to share with the world.  We have so many things that we want to do to help the world’s children with proper footwear and necessities.  We hope you visit our blog often and leave as many helpful hints and as much feedback as you like.  I believe that ideas are the cornerstone to success.  We welcome all ideas that can help us further our cause of providing new shoes to every child so they too can enjoy the benefits of learning and leading.
