April is National Child Abuse Awareness month. I did a little bit of research to see if there was anything fashion related supporting this awareness. Recently I have become very involved with an organization called Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). Their mission is, “to support and promote court-appointed volunteer advocacy so that every abused or neglected child can be safe, establish permanence and have the opportunity to thrive.” The Nashville chapter has an annual event to raise money for these children called, “The Red Shoe Party: There’s No Place Like Home.” It is coming up this weekend! People buy tickets in advance and join CASA at a cocktail event where there is music, dancing, a silent auction, and yes, everyone wears red shoes! (I’d like to see someone try not to make a fashion statement in red shoes—Love the creativity!
