This Guy Invented Shoes That Grow Five Sizes In Five Years For Kids In Developing Countries
Kenton Lee was working at an orphanage in Kenya when he noticed a little girl with the ends of her shoes cut off and her toes sticking out. It was then that he came up with the idea for The Shoe That Grows. “For years the idea of these growing shoes wouldn’t leave my mind,” he told BuzzFeed News. The first step was starting Because International with a few friends in 2006, a nonprofit devoted to “working with and helping those in extreme poverty,” their site says.
