Meet one of my heros: Jeremy Courtney. Jeremy and I graduated seminary together. Lets just say that Jeremy chose the path less travelled. That path led him to Iraq where he started a business/ministry called Buy Shoes, Save Lives. Basically, Jeremy works with Kurdish families to sell high quality, hand made shoes called klash in order to improve the families' lives as well as raise money for the thousands of Iraqi children in need of heart surgeries.
Watch some of BSSL's videos below and check out their website for more information (They also sell some great T-shirts, artbooks, and bracelets if you can't afford the shoes).
