Man going barefoot for year in fundraiser for African children in need of shoes for school

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, February 21, 2014 3:02 AM EST

A Kentucky man is going barefoot for a good cause in the middle of one of the harshest Southern winters in memory.

Hair stylist Richard Hudgins is doing it to raise money for shoeless children a world away.

He has gone barefoot to work, to shop and even to exercise at the gym. He has nearly made it through a brutal Kentucky winter that featured several days of snow and ice and single-digit temperatures.

Hudgins hopes to raise $25,000 in donations by year's end and then take the money to Kenya. Children there need uniforms and shoes just to attend school.

Hudgins says he is learning how to handle the cold and the strange looks he gets when he's out on the town.
