Hello! Today I'm going to talk about some other thing, a little break away from the party stuffs that's supposed to be going on this time.. I promise all the party printable will be coming your way real soon than you can spell "happy birthday". ;)
You know a thing or two about shoes, right? All the glitz and glams surrounding a pair of shoes.
I know I crave a pair of REAL glass slippers when I was a kid. You know the one that's not made of clear plastic and when your feet sweat it felt yucky and uncomfortable. But I was at the age of believing real glass slippers would have been realistic and comfortable. (come to think of it now logically Cinderella would have been suffered through the night)
The story itself, however, is somewhat logically true. "Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world", or this matter find herself a royal husband. She did changed her life, didn't she? Well, if you live in a third world country like me, it's a very common sight to see people, and children, walking errands barefooted. It was part tradition (our ancestors as farmers and fishermen never use anything to cover their feet working) and part poverty, actually. Children walk miles away to their school without wearing anything, but sometimes they even carry their own shoes and put them on when they arrive at school. Their shoes are so precious and lux they can't bear seeing them dirty.
This info graphic shows us how shoes can really change some children/people's life. No, I'm not trying to make you feel guilty buying a pair of designers shoes, :) but just think how a mere pair of shoes can make an impact not only for Cinderella, but also the rest of the world. I secretly wish they serve in Indonesia as well.
