Kick Off Your Heels fundraiser

Kick Off Your Heels fundraiser by SAQA Members Jamie Fingal and Sue Bleiweiss
Here is an artistic opportunity, if you would like to get involved.  For more information visit:  http://kickoffyourheelsfundraiser.blogspot.com/   

Greetings from Sue Bleiweiss and Jamie Fingal,

Did you know that more women die each year in the US from heart disease, than all cancers combined?  We didn't either.  After watching a segment on Katie Couric's new talk show, about this subject, we decided to put together a project to help raise awareness of heart disease in women. The link to the segment is here  http://www.katiecouric.com/on-the-show/2012/09/25/barbra-is-back/. Our goal is to raise $5,000 for The Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Center at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, California (http://www.cedars-sinai.edu/Patients/Programs-and-Services/Womens-Heart-Center/) because they not only treat women, but also educate and do major research for this disease with women, exclusively.

This is where you come in - we would like to personally invited you to be apart of our Kick Off Your Heels campaign, by creating a pair of high heels in your own artistic style, that we will sell on-line. The project will be a juried invitational with a $5 entry fee.  We have seen your work, and know that you can think outside the box and create a knock your socks off pair of high heels!  We’ve already created a few pairs of heels to inspire you and you can see those here:  http://kickoffyourheelsfundraiser.blogspot.com/p/view-shoes.html
