On Friday April 12, 2013 from 3:00-6:00 there will be a party to decorate pairs of TOMS shoes. You may be asking yourself, “Why is this being posted so early?” While the party is a ways away, the ordering of the shoes is not.
The order of your TOMS is due no later than Wednesday, February 15.
Now you might be asking yourself, “What is TOMS?” TOMS is a brand of canvas shoes that for every pair of shoes someone buys, a pair is given to a child in need from all around the world. When people buy these shoes, they are helping to protect a child’s feet from disease, cuts, and sores in one of 24 developing countries.
The National Art Honor Society (NAHS) of our high school will be hosting the party, where everyone who has bought a pair of shoes will be able to decorate them however they like. There will be paint, sharpies and many other art supplies so that everyone can make the shoes truly their own.
Two years ago the NAHS put on the event, and they hope for a bigger turnout this year. Everyone in the community is invited and if you have any questions please ask a NAHS student or Mrs. Chmielewski.
