Once again, the dance world is joining together for a cause. The brand Cloud & Victory has created an initiative called Pointes Against Childhood Slavery, and ALL of the proceeds are going to worthy causes.
Up for grabs are signed pairs of pointe shoes from American Ballet Theatre Principal Isabella Boylston, Boston Ballet Principal Ashley Ellis, English National Ballet First Artist Precious Adams, and The Royal Ballet First Artist Demelza Parish.
However they are selling fast! You’ll want to head on over to their website if you’re interested in buying a pair. The shoes cost anywhere from $100 to $420, and it comes with both shoes signed and used (hopefully the smell is sold separately...). The entire profit will be donated to several humanitarian causes such as Destiny Rescue and the Promiseland Project, which are organizations that help children who are in slavery and are being sexual exploited. They service countries such as Thailand, Cambodia, the Dominican Republic, the Philippines, India, and Nepal.
So if you’re a collector of rare items and you want to support an amazing cause, or you need a special Christmas gift for the ballerina in your life, you should definitely check this opportunity out. Either way, the pointe shoes will be off the market tomorrow, so shimmy on over to their website!
