If you just realized that we're almost halfway through November and you haven't figured out any of your holiday gift-giving yet (something we absolutely, positively, cannot relate to at all), we've got a little suggestion for the social-justice loving ballet nerd in your life courtesy of Cloud & Victory.
C&V is in the midst of their Pointes Against Child Slavery fundraiser. Through November 18, they're selling signed pointe shoes from international ballet stars ranging from National Ballet of Canada/English National Ballet principal dancer (and our August 2016 cover star) Jurgita Dronina to Houston Ballet demi-soloist Harper Watters. About two-thirds of the pairs of signed shoes are still up for grabs, and while they cost a pretty penny, proceeds from the shoes (which are currently priced between $100-$420) will benefit two humanitarian agencies fighting to protect children: US-based Destiny Rescue and Nepal's Promiseland Project. Plus, every purchase comes with a 15% discount voucher for the C&V store!
It's no secret that we adore C&V. The clothing brand's Instagram alone frequently brightens our days (and cause bouts of giggling around the DM offices), not to mention their witty, ballet-nerd-chic t-shirts. And now that they're paying their success forward—well, we're swooning.
