M I K E S C H A I R Is Changing the World For Thousands Of Children, Delivering 27,718 Donated Shoes For Orphans In Guatemala
06 October 2010

According to a report released by WJIS/The JOY FM, which serves central and southwest Florida, in a record-shattering outpouring of support listeners in the community provided 27,716 new pairs of shoes for orphans located in Guatemala through the "Shoes for Orphan Souls" program. Curb Records' recording artist, MIKESCHAIR, once again joined The JOY FM to help provide for orphans with their own hands-on involvement by collecting shoes, by providing their hit song, “Keep Changing the World” as the theme song for these efforts, as well as personally delivering the shoes to these orphaned children. This is the second time MIKESCHAIR has partnered with The JOY FM in this capacity. Last year took the group to Peru with "Shoes for Orphan Souls" and delivered over 7,000 pair of shoes.

Sam Tinnesz, lead guitarist for MIKESCHAIR, commented, "I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the Guatemalan people and their rich culture. It was so humbling to get to wash the feet of orphans while sharing the love of Christ with them. I will never forget the joy on their faces when we handed them a new pair of shoes."

The members of MIKESCHAIR - Tinnesz, Mike Grayson, Jesse Hale and Jon Haire - were joined and led on the trip by Carmen Brown, PD and morning show host of The JOY FM, who also participated on the excursion to Peru last year. The trip to Guatemala was also joined by a handful of JOY FM listeners. Pictures taken from the trip to Guatemala, held last month, are highlighted below. The shoe outreach was sponsored by Buckner International Ministries ( shoesfororphansouls.org), who also sponsored the trip to Peru.

Also according to the press release distributed by The JOY FM, additionally for the trip this year the charitable organization BeautifulFeet.org agreed to match up to 12,000 pairs of shoes for every pair of shoes listeners donated. Spurred on by the matching gift and a challenge to small groups to collect the most shoes with the reward of having MIKESCHAIR perform at the winner's church, listeners provided 15,716 shoes, almost doubling the previous record of 8,600! More impressive than the number of donated shoes were stories of why people gave to this effort. A woman who donated two pairs of boy's shoes at the last “shoe stop” in Sarasota did so because she had recently lost her son and wanted to give shoes in honor of him.


MIKESCHAIR partners with organizations such as Buckner International and utilizes mikestable at many of their shows, in hopes that people become aware of what's going on in the world in terms of need, to give them empowerment, while also to give options. MIKESCHAIR welcomes audiences to visit mikestable that is dedicated to offering information for various causes such as Food for the Hungry, IJM, Love 146 and more.
