Funky Shoe Font Put to Good Use!


Recently, Zsuzsi Mcdonald, an elementary teacher in Livonia, Michigan who works at a Leader in Me school with students who do community service projects, contacted me to see if her students could use my Funky Shoe Font (posted on my blog last year http://autreyart.blogspot.com/2014/12/new-funky-shoes-font-alphabets.html#links)  for one of their projects.  Of course, I said yes.  I love it when my art is used for educational purposes. 

Here are the details of Zsuzsi's request:  "A group of 30 students collected gently used shoes during the months of October and November. The shoes were sent to Funds2Orgs, they ship the shoes to developing countries, where they repair and sell the shoes.  Monies from Funds2Orgs are donated to the local Kiwanis of Livonia, who will donate 50% of what they raise to Child Life Services at four Michigan children’s hospitals and 50% to the Eliminate Project, a joint project between Kiwanis International and UNICEF to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus worldwide."

Once I sent my font to her, Zsuzsi sent me the above photo showing a picture of the students with one load of shoes ready to go.  She said their leaders will be using my font for their title for their Youth Making A Difference board.  I'm thrilled!
