With the current climate of our country, we wanted to create a foundation that artistically highlights the emotions of all walks of life battling different storms.
What if we all took a moment to sincerely think about a problem another person maybe facing because the color of their skin, gender, sexual orientation or religious beliefs?
Conversely, what if we celebrated how others beat cancer, alcoholism or became drug free?
What if you've been impacted by an illness and truly believe in research to help cure it?
WaMOS desires to bring attention to all of these truths, pains, joys and experiences through art on footwear. Walk a Mile in Our Shoes Foundation is a registered non-profit 501(c)3 aspiring to partner with other foundations to help pursue cures and social change.
