No, this is not just a catchy title. My girlfriend, Fashion Blogger behind Carmel + Vanilla Lara Bechalany, challenged me to walk a mile in red heels…for a cause!
Before I reveal the photos of our preparatory photoshoot, let’s take a brief snapshot at the concept and the cause behind it.
In 2014, and like every year, Lebanese NGO Kafa received more than 2,500 calls on its helpline from women who are victims of violence or in need of help.
In 2014, and like every year, a huge number of Lebanese sat back reading such news and did totally nothing about it.
This year however, this is about to change.
Our friends at Uf Concepts (the awesomely crazy people behind many viral videos and acts of random kindness) are bringing an international event to Lebanon entitled WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES.
The event is supposed to raise funds for Kafa through the sales of these red heels as well as spread awareness about violence against women through its expected buzz and media coverage.
To prove that we, Lebanese Men, should do anything to protect our Women, here I am accepting Lara’s challenge in a preparatory photoshoot or what I’d like to call “One small step for a Boss and one giant leap for Mankind”
Want a front seat to witness my ridiculous, less sexy, stunt filled, manly walk? Join me on April 26 starting 10:00 AM at Waterfront City Dbayeh where heels (in all sizes) will be made available for you…to walk a mile in her shoes!
Big thanks to Rania and Rudy for supplying the studio, photography equipment, and all the good laughs!
