There is no way that I could possibly know what it feels like to be in the shoes of a women living and trying to survive in an impoverished country. But I can help women in the world, by buying shoes in a store where guilt free shopping can make a difference.
A store, named "In Her Shoes", in downtown Palo Alto, CA, donates all of their profits to the Global Fund for Women, an organization that gives humanitarian grants to women's projects that promote human rights and social justice in their communities. The store is even staffed by some volunteers who want to support Global Fund for Women in this way.
Check out the store's website and watch their video about the store's mission and for more information about the Global Fund for Women. http://www.inhershoespa.com/
