How much do you love pizza?

Pizza sneakers. You definitely read that right. Because, why not?

These glorious cheesy creations are going to be auctioned off starting at $275 and proceeds donated to womenwin.org, an organization that empowers gender equality through sports.

Would you purchase this pepperoni perfection if it was for a good cause? As much as I love my pizza, I don’t think I would be able to rock these. Love the fact that it’s going to charity, but then I would be left with pizza sneakers…. and the only pizza I want to have is one that I can eat.

Community Spotlight: Helping Others

Dear Members,

Welcome to our community spotlight feature*.  This week we chose NClady71’s topic asking “You are given the opportunity to help someone. By choice, who would you help?”

comm spot

NClady71 brings up a very interesting topic; there are so many charities and organizations in our world that provide us a way to help out our communities. Many respondents said they would help children, the homeless, and veterans. Here are some other responses:


Jatavionshealey:  yes of course. Everyone has their own struggle, so a helping hand is what everyone deserves

cristalee2001: all the people i could everybody needs help sometime. 😉

jeni1978: i would help children, the elderly and those not able to care for themselves

meme772: I would help single mothers, help with their self esteem and reinforce that our heavenly father cares and is just waiting for his help show him love and praise for what he has already done

NMCB3299: I would help disadvantaged children. Every Christmas I donate something for Toys for Tots because I know that it goes to help make a poor child’s Christmas more cheerful


A big thank you goes out to our Featured User, NClady71’s, for inspiring this week’s spotlight, as well as, to all of her topic’s contributors. Feel free to join in the conversation and commenting on the topic here.

See you soon,
