Barefoot and Beyond

Just another weblog

Barefoot Books supports Books for Africa December 5, 2008

“Books For Africa is the largest shipper of donated books to the African continent. Since 1988, they have sent over 20 million books to 44 African countries and into the hands of rural schoolchildren. Many of these children are taught in primitive schoolrooms without running water, electricity or the basic materials and tools needed to learn. By collecting, sorting and shipping books to these communities, Books For Africa provides these children with the fundamental tools they need to learn, grow and improve their individual lives and the world around them.”

For $5, customers can donate these hardcover titles:

We All Went on Safari
Mama Panya’s Pancakes
We’re Sailing Down the Nile
Hidden Hippo

For $3, customers can donate these board book titles:
How Loud is a Lion
Zoe and her Zebra

What a wonderful gift of giving for the holiday season. This is an amazing organization and I am so proud to be a part of Barefoot Books and this cause.


Barefoot and Beyond December 4, 2008

Barefoot and Beyond is about discovering a love for all things Barefoot. Living a barefoot life is rewarding and challenging. Barefoot and Beyond is inspired by the lovely and wonderfully creative line of children’s books known as Barefoot Books.  My desire to live barefoot came with the birth of my baby girl and finding ways to teach her how living barefoot can be exciting, whimsical and inspiring. Kick off your shoes and come join me on my journey of living barefoot and beyond by taking the time each day to really enjoy every moment and all the simple pleasures life has to offer while exploring the world we live in and discovering ways to walk lightly upon this beautiful Earth we call home.  Discover other cultures, art, crafts, literature, poetry, going green and all things Barefoot.
