Once I got him a solar powered flashlight because the company said that every time someone bought one here in the US one was given to a kid in Africa. I like the idea of providing light for someone in Africa who might need it...and who couldn't use another flashlight, right?
Which is probably the same reason I really really want a pair of these shoes:
Part of me thinks they look kind of funny and another part of my doesn't really care what they look like. And then another part of me wonders if they could possibly be as comfortable as they look and the other part of me wonders if wearing these makes me a bit too hipster for my own good.
And the last part of me smiles from ear to ear thinking of some cute kid who didn't have shoes running around with her very own pair of new bright pink kicks.
