Celebs design shoes to support Youth Villages

These are the shoes William-Paisley designed.

Youth Villages is receiving the support of five celebrities and custom shoe website Milk & Honey Shoes this holiday season.

by: SUBMITTED PHOTOS - Actress Kimberly William-Paisley designed a shoe with Milk & Honey Shoes to benefit local nonprofit Youth Villages.

Actress and director Kimberly Williams-Paisley, actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth, celebrity stylist Kayla Farhang, fashion model CariDee English and actress Ashley Williams have all designed Milk & Honey shoes to benefit Youth Villages.

All proceeds from sales of these shoes will be donated to Youth Villages.

During this campaign Youth Villages invites supporters to share their custom-designed shoes on the nonprofit’s Pinterest page at pinterest.com/youthvillages/ways-you-can-help.

“These shoes would make a great gift and provide meaningful and long-term support for children who do not have the ideal family during this holiday season,” said Swoozie Kimmel PR Principal Public Relations Strategist Kimberly Alexander, who is helping promote the benefit campaign.

Youth Villages, with residential campus Christie in Lake Oswego and Clackamas River campus in Oregon City, helps emotionally and behaviorally troubled children, many of whom are in foster care or waiting to be adopted.

According to the U.S. Administration on Children, Youth and Families, Children’s Bureau, there were 11,356 children in foster care and 2,062 children in public foster care waiting to be adopted in Oregon as of Sept. 30, 2012.
