Design a Day - Day 23 (For Japan)


In the wake of the widespread tragedy and loss of Japan, I have a special Design a Day post. I cannot begin to understand their grieving and the impact it is having on their daily life. I am in Houston, and we lived through Hurricane Ike. It was nothing even comparable to what people in Japan are suffering through. But we did see homes with trees crashed through roof tops, fences torn apart... we lived without electricity for two weeks. Life as we knew it shut down in a surreal sort of way. So, my thoughts and prayers go to those who are suffering, and I think it is the testimony of the human spirit that we can band together and support those on the other side of the globe.

So, for today's Design a Day, I have two pairs of shoes, one size 6 and one size 8. Rather than having the option to purchase them, you have the opportunity to donate $5 to Giving Children Hope to aid in their relief work in Japan. Each $5 donation is an entry. I will collect donations for the next 24 hours. At the end of that time period, I will select two winners for the shoes below. Each donation is an entry; you can enter as many times as you wish.

Thank you for your help and kindness in supporting the children who are suffering in Japan!

**Donations to enter in the raffle for the shoes are now closed. If you would still like to give, please visit Giving Children Hope. Thank you to everyone who entered!**

UPDATE!
Since I had so many of you ask how to donate larger dollar amounts, I have decided that in addition to raffling off the two shoes above, I will donate a pair of Pink Lace Harlow Shoes {size 7} and a Gemma dress {any size 12m-4T} to whoever donates the highest amount.

Can we choose which size we want? I will make a donation right now....my daughter is growing out of her 6's right now so I'd need the 8. :) Thanks! You are an amazing artisan.

What a wonderful idea Jessica. You have such a strong fan base that if only 50% of your fans donated 5$ that would be 25000$ can you imagine?! That could go a long way.

I am deeply sadden by Japan as well. So this is my way to help (I will donate to the red cross as well)
