Are you aware that more women die each year in the US from cardiovascular disease than all cancers combined?! Sue Bleiweiss and Jamie Fingal put together a project to help raise awareness of that horrifying statistic. The goal is to raise $5,000 for The Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles,California: they not only treat women, but also educate and do major research for this disease as it pertains to women. Katie Couric talked to Barbra Streisand about the heart center and you can watch excerpts from that interview here.
So how are we going to do achieve our goal? We’ll do it through an online sale of high heel shoes that have been transformed into works of art! We’ve already created a few pairs of shoes to inspire the art communityand you can see those here. Here are the heels I’ve created for this project that will be available for purchase in May of 2013:
These stilettos are called,
"Women Fly When Men Aren't Looking"
