Speakerheart Artist Damien Horne Joins Samaritan’s Feet World Walk
Speakerheart(TM) artist Damien Horne has joined the founder of Samaritan's Feet, Emmanuel (Manny) Ohonme, on a 300-mile Samaritan's Feet World Walk to raise $1,000,000 and 300,000 pairs of shoes for children in need. In addition to offering a "Sole Music" compilation CD on Speakerheart.com to raise funds for the charity, Horne is also performing throughout the walk and writing a theme song along the way.
"This journey is a reminder to us all to help those less fortunate than ourselves," said Horne, "Most of us don't think twice about having shoes to wear each day, but for children around the world, a pair of shoes is a life-saving gift."
Samaritan's Feet is an international ministry dedicated to providing shoes to children in need. Ohonme hopes to raise awareness for this global need in addition to $1,000,000 and 300,000 pairs of shoes. The World Walk began Saturday, Oct. 11, in Charlotte, N.C., at the Lowe's Motor Speedway and will end in Atlanta, Ga., on Sunday, Oct. 26, at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. Ohonme is walking the 300-mile journey barefoot. Other sponsors include Fila, Crocs(TM) and Speedway Children's Charities.
To help raise funds for the cause, Horne is offering a "Sole Music" compilation CD for sale at Speakerheart.com for $4 and donating all proceeds to Samaritan's Feet. The compilation includes songs "Heart of Africa,""Somebody's Hero,""We'll Get Through" and "Walkin'." He is also performing live throughout the walk -- for dates and times check out the Tour Dates page on his website. There are plenty of opportunities for individuals to participate in the World Walk, for more information check out the Samaritan's Feet World Walk website.
"Damien is an incredibly passionate individual who is always willing to go the extra mile to support the causes he believes in," said Jeff Skillen, manager for Speakerheart. "In this case he happens to be going an extra 300 miles."
