It's Not Too Late To Save a Life !

The first cases of what would later become known as AIDS were reported in the U.S. in June of 1981. Since then, 1.7 million people in the U.S. are estimated to have been infected with HIV, including over 619,000 who have already died and approximately 1.2 million (1,178,359) adults and adolescents who are currently living with HIV. 

Given these startling statistics and an effort to pay it forward,  Flat Out of Heels is donating $10 from EVERY pair of RED SHOES purchased in October to the BE A ROLE MODEL foundation to help reach the organization's goal of raising $10,000 for HIV/AIDS awareness, research and prevention. 

Feel free to check out photos of Flat Out of Heels' CEO, Dawn Dickson, participating in AIDS Walk Atlanta 2012 with the Be A Role Model organization. 

Be A Role Model is an organization of models devoted to volunteerism, encouraging the potential of youth and improving the communities through the effective action and leadership; its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

Remember, it's not too late to save a life!!
