66,180 dancing Rwandan children — wearing shoes!

shoesLast night I went to bed with the vision of 66,180 Rwandan children dancing in my head — wearing SHOES from Toms Shoes and Eyewear One For One project. Costa Ndayisabye, author of The Work that Brings Peace in Me, recently published by Great Life Press, facilitated in the donation of the new shoes to Rwanda, and he plans on being there when the shoes arrive in late July / early August to help with their distribution.

Costa came to see me yesterday, and told me the donation is dedicated to Great Life Press! He said that successfully publishing his book with me has given him more confidence at his speaking engagements, and this was part of his thanks. I am so honored to be a part of Costa’s efforts for peace, reconciliation, and making a difference in the world. I have rarely felt so blessed, and so joyful to be witness to all of Costa’s activities around the globe.

Costa will be participating in the Old Port Festival, Portland, Maine on Sunday June 10, 2012. Please come, and please stop by to meet Costa and say hello to this amazing emissary of peace!

Costa will be presenting his talk, “The Work that Brings Peace in Me,” in more places in Maine and New Hampshire in the coming months. I’ll be posting those events here when the details become available.

In love and light,
Grace
