When you're in a shoe store trying on a pair of red flamboyant heels with feathers flying off the back, do you ever wish you could contribute to a good cause at the same time? Well, at In Her Shoes at the Town & Country Village in Palo Alto you can.
In Her Shoes is a cute little boutique that sells shoes, jewelery, and accessories, with a collection that ranges from cute and funky to everyday comfort. What makes this boutique unique is a commitment to giving all of its profits to the Global Fund for Women, the largest charity funding women's rights in the world. The Fund puts money directly in the hands of women who are making a difference all over the world, whether it's in the promotion of women's economic equality and health or fighting against oppression and human trafficking.
The women that greet you when you walk in are warm and welcoming, and how can you resist a cute pair of shoes when you know the money you're spending is going toward a good cause? And unlike Tom's which sells only one type of shoe, this boutique sells all different kinds! Stores like this deserve recognition for the good things they are doing!
