Millions From One
Press Release for Gypsy Soule
The Gypsy Soule company based in Weatherford, Texas, has built their company with values that inspire and instill confidence in women through their unique shoe line and accessories. Lorinda Van Newkirk and Amy Moorehouse, the founding partners of Gypsy Soule, have always had the desire to give back to their community.
Now, this heart of generosity has emerged with a global impact. In August of 2012, Gypsy Soule contacted New River Fellowship and Millions from One partner, Bill Ford, to discuss impacting women in third world countries by donating shoes to help them create micro enterprises. The shoes become the “seeds” that help these new women business owners create startup capital through the sales of these products that were gifted to them from Gypsy Soule. These women will then have the capital to purchase more products to continue their small enterprise. With the help of the global outreach team from New River, Millions from One was able to pick up over 2,000 pairs of Gypsy Soule shoes where they will be transported to the Mission Barnabus team in Kenya. MFO will also distribute these shoes in Guatemala to help women start businesses there.
MFO was very excited about this opportunity because of their passion for shoes. In 2007, MFO began producing antimicrobial shoes. The antimicrobial property of their shoes prevents many of the leading causes of disease in impoverished living conditions. Need. They are now helping in more than 45 countries and have been responsible for the distribution of a million pairs of these “right” shoes. To learn more about these organizations, go, to their website:

A Daughters Dedication
Some of you may know our Gypsy Sister contributor Leah Walker, but many don’t know why she is dedicated to travel and living each day to the fullest. Here is a glimpse into what inspires her, what she stands for and why she does what she does. Here is a story that shows the love and bond between Mother and Daughter. We “borrowed” one of her blogs to repost because it touched our hearts and our souls. We know it will inspire you as it has us.
Catching up with one of our Gypsy Sisters who is an inspiration to us all ~ Brandi Todd
Two years ago in March, Brandi Todd was spending the day with her two children in a local park in Stephenville, Texas. It was a beautiful day, sunny not many clouds in the sky. She noticed a man acting strangely and before she knew it, it felt like she had been shot. Her life forever changed in that moment. Brandi wasn’t shot that day, she was stabbed by a mentally unstable man who didn’t even know her. A random act of violence witnessed by her children that left her with 90% of her spinal cord severed and a 1% chance to ever walk again. She can remember hearing her daughter asking “is my mother going to die?”
