Marshalls has always been one of my fave places to shop, but now I have a reason to love it even more– and so does everyone else! Over the past 18 years, Marshalls has raised millions with their annual “Shop ‘Til It Stops” campaign benefiting the victims of domestic violence in the US. Simply purchasing a pair of shoes will work wonders for the National Domestic Violence Hotline and the recipients of their much-needed services, assisting over 21,000 callers who reach out every month for help.
From October 1st-15th, Marshalls will donate $1 per pair of shoes purchased to the NDVH (up to $150,000). As a symbol of how Marshalls is taking a stand against domestic violence, on October 1st– a tunnel was unveiled in Santa Monica, CA. The one & only Tim Gunn and Melrose Place alum Laura Leighton presented this tunnel on the Third Street Promenade and yours truly was fortunate enough to attend! The first 100 people who took a stand against domestic violence and walked through the symbolic tunnel received a pair of fabulous shoes from a beautiful selection which included high-end brands like Coach and Kate Spade. Pretty awesome if you ask me! Below are some photos of the event, as you can see I received quite the surprise when I was able to pose with the VERY charming and lovable Tim Gunn!
