Chasing Peace Shoe Decorating

On Wednesday, November 25, Chasing Peace came to visit Yeshivah of Flatbush! Chasing Peace is an organization that donates shoes to children in need, and our students got to decorate the shoes that will be donated thanks to their donations and designs. Our students decided to donate the shoes they decorated to the different organizations in Israel that the Chesed Mission 2016 will be visiting this January. 
Chasing Peace brought us shoes in all different sizes, from toddlers to adult sizes. Every student who came during their lunch to decorate picked up some sharpies, a pair of shoes, drew on their shoes and had a great time! Our students really showed how creative and imaginative they are! We got such amazing designs! A few shout outs- Sarah Cohen and her amazing shoes, Albert Saad and his Olaf shoes! After the students finished decorating their shoes, they placed a small handwritten letter inside the shoe. Thank you to everyone who participated, we designed 60 pairs of shoes for children and adults in need! Thank you to SeƱora Ovadia, Chantelle, Moses, and Madelyne for organizing this amazing event and introducing Yeshivah of Flatbush to Chasing Peace!
