Sgt. Hook, who is presently serving in Afghanistan, has organized “Operation Shoe Fly,” the goal of which is to obtain donations of shoes/sneakers for the children of Afghanistan. The details of the program are here and here, and helpful mailing instructions can be found here.

I suspect that, if you have children, you have a few pairs of like-new, but too-small shoes gathering dust in a closet. If you are grandparents, ask your kids to check their closets. Or, if you can spare a couple bucks, the next time you find yourself in Wal-Mart or Target thinking about buying a CD, why not spring for a pair of kids’ sneakers instead. “Operation Shoe Fly” will put those shoes to good use.

As the Nike folks say, “Just do it.”

Special note to the Usual Suspects: Waddya say?


  1. I stole your image and linked to you and Hook for this.

    You can beat me if you like but somehow I’m guessing you won’t mind 🙂

    (But I have been wrong before!)

  2. Do not forget about the small shop on your daily walking path, with “Shoe Only $10.00.” If enough of us pitched in we could turn Mr. Odd-Wording into one of the biggest suppliers of Operation Shoe Fly.

  3. Nice use of the phrase “Just do it.” Perhaps Nike could be persuaded by some silver-tongued devil from New Jersey to assist this program. *G*
