I'm participating in the 2011 Walk a Mile in Her Shoes in Pittsfield, MA, September 15. And I need your help! Here's a little description of the event:
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes events are political and performance art with public, personal and existential messages. At a Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event there is no distinction between performer and audience. Our mission is to create a unique and powerful public experience that educates individuals and communities about the causes of sexualized violence, provides them with prevention and remediation strategies and empowers them to further develop and implement these knowledges and skills interpersonally and politically.
Or in other words, a bunch of men put on high heels and walk for a mile in solidarity with all of the wonderful women in our lives.
Can I get you to donate today? 100% of the funds I get from your PayPal contributions will go to the organization's fight against sexualized violence. Because that's bad, mmm-kay?
FANCY DONATION TRACKER (9/8, 10:20 AM): Right now you've donated $75 so far... add that to the $90 we've raised at work, and we're up to $165 raised to help fight sexualized violence-- keep the donations coming!
