Got shoes? You know the ones I’m talking about. The ones that are in pretty good condition but maybe never fit right? Or ones you love — but they’ve been sitting in your closet for two years and you’ve never had the right outfit for them?

Ospina Creative wants them! And the reason they want them? Well, it’s pretty darn cool.

Sandra Ospina, principal of the creative organization, is art directing a large PR project that celebrates women who are raising their voices and exerting their influence to make real change happen. She’s teamed up with Capella Fahoome, Producer and Executive Producer at Defining Entertainment, to bring the vision to life. Their end goal? To inspire and empower women everywhere. 

The vision requires something unique and they are asking for community help. Specifically, they are in need of 300-400 pairs of women’s shoes. Right now, they are 1/3 of the way to their goal. When do they need these shoes? By Friday morning. (Yes! This Friday morning! February 23).

But it’s not just about collecting shoes for a photoshoot. When Sandra and Capella were brainstorming where to find 300-400 pairs of shoes, they decided to take the project one step further. Ask for donations, and then after the photoshoot donate all of the shoes to Women Giving Back. The organization’s mission is to serve women and children in crisis by helping transitionally homeless women and children get on their feet with clothes to help them enter the workplace and fit in at school at no cost.

We love that this project not only aims to inspire but also empower other women as they get back on their feet.

Excited? We thought so. Have shoes? Don’t we all!? Drop your pairs off at Wee Chic Boutique at Green Spring Station. The team there is generously collecting for the project through Thursday evening. Wee Chic is open from 10 AM – 6 PM on Wednesday and 10 AM – 8 PM on Thursday.

(We can’t wait to share the project when it’s completed!)
