Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 06, 2013
MYSHOEHOSPITAL.com, the online extension of the world’s largest shoe repair company, is pleased to introduce PinkHeels™, a line of custom-fit pink heels that can be placed on any pair of shoes, both women’s and men’s, to show solidarity in the fight against breast cancer. MySHOEHOSPITAL.com is donating 100% of the net proceeds from every purchase of PinkHeels directly to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center to aid in research, patient care, and prevention of breast cancer and other cancers affecting both women and men.
According to Steve Kelly, Co-President of MYSHOEHOSPITAL.com, “We know well the devastation of cancer, and our team is deeply passionate about supporting research initiatives aimed at its treatment and prevention. Our one-of-a-kind pink heel is a subtle and powerful way for both women and men to show their commitment to fighting cancer. We are very proud of our partnership with MD Anderson, and hope our PinkHeels will cause a ripple effect, inspiring others to join in the efforts to beat cancer.” PinkHeels can be purchased online nationwide and expert shoe craftsmen will custom fit and apply them to virtually any stiletto, flat, wedge, dress shoe, or boot customers send in. Pink supporters wanting to go one step further can add matching PinkSoles™ for an even bigger pink statement.
Donations from the sale of PinkHeels will benefit many programs at MD Anderson, whose mission is “to eliminate cancer in Texas, the nation, and the world through outstanding programs that integrate patient care, research and prevention, and through education for undergraduate and graduate students, trainees, professionals, employees and the public.” Every dollar will make a significant impact in the lives of cancer patients and their families.
“Wearing PinkHeels makes a statement that we are not going to give up in our fight against cancer,” says Stephen Kelly, Director of Marketing. “Wear them during breast cancer awareness month in October, or better yet, wear them year-round. Let people ask you why and answer them with pride! Let’s take a stand for our lost and ailing loved ones and keep the support for cancer research growing by educating our friends, colleagues, and strangers that the fight is not over… all by simply showing a hint of pink on our shoes, either for a moment or for a lifetime.”
