40 Pa. men parade in women’s shoes to raise money

(05-25) 20:54 PDT Camp Hill, Pa. (AP) —

Dozens of men in south-central Pennsylvania have teamed up for a good cause and put their best feet forward — in women’s shoes.



Frank Baird is the founder of the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes march. He says it’s an international men’s movement that aims to stop violence against women.

About 40 men wore footwear including fluffy red marabou slippers with 2-inch heels for the Memorial Day march in Camp Hill, a town of about 8,000 residents just outside Harrisburg.

Monday’s fundraiser generated about $5,000 for Rape Crisis of Cumberland County and Domestic Violence Services of Cumberland and Perry counties.

    Hi Wyndee.. I listened to Jackson… he’s funny! And then I also listened to Craig Schlesinger, I listened to his sermon all the way thru, I really enjoyed it. And then I listened to Bill’s sermon. It was funny, they both were very similar… they both talked about employee / employer relationships and how that relates to our relationship with God. I liked Craig’s “biased towards action” point/lesson. I haven’t listened to Jim Anderson’s sermon yet..

    Craig is our senior pastor. he is straight and to the point huh. 🙂 we love him. hes one of those personalities that just keeps growing on you. at first my mom didnt like him at all. but now she does. YES! Jackson is so funny. but funnier in person b/c you can see his facial expressions and his big white smile and his dark black skin make you giggle.
    Matthew is PC’s (Pastor Craig) son, and he can bring it too. i love em all!!! the bias towards action was so good. we usually have very good alter ministry after things like that.
    so you had a good weekend?

    wyndee! lighter than air! how does your garden grow?

    she breezes in and out
    brings smiley faces in the mix
    telling us all about
    the cool and misty place she’s been

    tell us, wyndee, lighter than air,
    what flowers did you pick,
    what songs did you sing?
    last but not least,
    what shoes did you wear?

    40 second song for wyndee

  7. my weekend was super. today my nephew pretended to throw up, but it was just coffee. wisely i fell for it and got to work all day on my new site. 😉

    it would be fun if you could get your senior pastor to wear some ladies shoes. that is always good for a laugh. and raise some money.

    speaking of shoes, kay, why don’t you go put on some pretty little slippers and step on over to the fight club? it’s not really a fight club, more of a signature runway walk.

    no wyndee, i am not ignoring you, i’m ignoring the voices in my head that tell me not to do these things. 😉

    i know, D9’s song was great. loved it.

    now if you want to go over to the fight club and take the poll, please do.
    the point we are arguing:
    мы должны сохранить этот Kay из рук правительства.
    which loosely translated,
    “We must save this government from the hands of Kay.” 😦

    it’s simple really.

    well, wyndee, anonymous is me, i’m at the library and must remain undercover.
    those pictures are from the video game left4 dead. an inside joke that probably only e_e will get. you are the zombie horde, but at least i gave you a smiley face. and i finally figured out the formula. 🙂
    kay is the boomer, she is always vomiting up bile.
    dorian is the smoker with that long 50ft tongue of his, getting victims all wrapped up in it..
    e-e is the tank, the big boss battle, he can throw chunks of concrete if kay acts up.
    betty is the witch, another boss, but if you turn off your flashlight and tiptoe past her, she won’t get too upset. just let her cry.
    and princess is the hunter, she will jump & strike out of nowhere and all you know is coming is the loud shrieks, just before she jumps you and claws out your innards. that is how you play left4 dead.
    zombie hordes with 🙂 are good things.

    oh, hi wyndee, well, if you ever played left4dead you would know how funny that is. sometimes your a girl, sometimes not.

    well, i guess i get guys & gals mixed up sometimes. but have you ever looked around? sometimes it is hard to tell. lots of masculine women where i live.

    we should get guinness book of world records or guinness beer to see how many 🙂 “ADKOB” can generate.

    i sometimes go to the library, i don’t have internet access of my own. anyway, i’m working on some hard-hitting journalism for monday morning’s edition of “BAAL KELLER FANATIX!”

    oh, jesus, the guy at the computer next to me just cut a silent but deadly. i gotta run.
