Emmy-winning actress Julia Ormond has donated an autographed pair of black heels, to Shoe Revolt for auction to help raise funds for The WellHouse that fights against the human trafficking industry in Alabama. The shoes will be up for bid on July 9th thru the 16th on Ebay.
The stunning British actress, known for her stellar performances in films such as Legends of the Fall and HBO’s Temple Grandin, is one of dozens of celebrities who have taken the shoes off their feet to support this fundraising auction for Shoe Revolt, joining in the fight to end human trafficking.
This is hardly Ormond’s first contribution to the struggle to end the exploitation of the world’s most vulnerable populations; she has spent years supporting causes such as disaster relief and child poverty. In 2005, she was named a United Nations ambassador against human trafficking, and she is an advocate for Transatlantic Partners Against AIDS. She is also a founding co-chairman of FilmAid International. Shoe Revolt is proud to be her next good cause.
Ateba Crocker founded Shoe Revolt, a registered 501(c) (3) charitable organization, in an effort to help stomp out the plague of sexual slavery in the United States by partnering with programs like The WellHouse. The WellHouse is the first program in Alabama to assist survivors of commercial sexual exploitation twenty-four hours a day. Tajuan Lewis is the Executive Director.
Auction is to go live at 1:15pm PST on July 9th, 2012. Check twitter/@shoerevolt for your auction link
