Michelle over at Living with Bob came up with a truly brilliant idea: to share her sparkly shoes with the world. Specifically, to share her signature shoes among those of us living with chronic invisible illnesses like dysautonomia. Whether you live in Denmark, Dubai, or anywhere in between, the coveted Dorothy shoes may make their way to your doorstep. If you're interested in participating, simply send a brief email with your name and your country to Rusty.Hoe@thedorothyshoeproject.com.
Can't walk in heels? Can't walk at all? Not a problem. Everyone is entitled to take their turn wearing the shoes. The only stipulation is that you photograph yourself (or your feet!) wearing them in a creative way and share online. Not only will The Dorothy Shoe Project infuse a bit of fun and whimsy into our lives, it is also a beautiful display of solidarity and a unique and I'll bet effective way to spread awareness. Wear them to your doctor's appointment, to the gym, the grocery store, any public place where people may inquire about your ruby heels and what they represent.
Michelle is already one of the coolest women in the world and her latest creation, The Dorothy Shoe Project, pretty much crowns her as Superwoman to those of us in the chronic invisible illness community. So Michelle, this song's for you and all you do. Your blog has already been a life-changer for so many of us and now you're about to change even more lives with The Dorothy Shoe Project. Can't wait to put some new shoes on and pass them along!
