How we love our artists.
Everyone’s already stepping up (it’s almost painful how many puns exist in this line of work) and volunteering designs for the new We’ve got (iss)shoes section of our website.
If you missed the post explaining how this works, here’s the gist: participating Hourglass artists choose a non-profit close to their heart and design a pair of shoes around the cause. Then they pick the dollar amount they wish to donate to that cause out of their own commission from each shoe sold, and Hourglass matches that amount. The full total going to the non-profit will be clearly stated on each order page.
Debbie’s (iss)shoe is the Obama campaign. She’s agreed to donate $10 of her own money from the sale of each shoe, so we’re matching that and Obama’s getting $20 per pair sold.
When asked about her reasons for supporting this cause, Debbie says simply, “Progressive values are hot.”

Hey, you know what would also be hot? Michelle Obama in Debbie’s finished shoes:
They’re called Democratic Platforms. Of course.
