Keds Ambassadors for How Do You Do? Tour AFH

On Saturday, March 7, when the giant Keds mobile shoebox rolls onto the Boylston Plaza@ The Shops at Prudential Center college students from Boston University and Mass Art will be Keds Ambassadors creating, collaborating and contributing to Artists For Humanity. AFH was selected by Keds for what we do to mentor and inspire Boston's underserved youth to become self sufficient through paid employment in the arts. As part of the "How do you Do Charity?" all event attendees and those interested in participating will be asked to tweet what inspires them (you) about Boston on #KedsHDYD. Keds will donate $1 per tweet ( up to $5,000) to Artists For Humanity.

Keds Ambassadors BU sophomore Hillary Rappaport and BU senior Catalina Dussan and Nicole Jimenez and Liz Mollica from Mass Art toured the Artists For Humanity EpiCenter to better understand AFH's mission and talked to AFH youth artists and were impressed!

As a major in public relations, Catalina signedon with Keds to help with the May 7th event and source the entertainment. She loves Keds! And loves that AFH "allows teens from all backgrounds to flourish as they explore a variety of mediums." Hillary, plans to major in business and entrepreneurship. Her family always wears Keds, so it was a good fit. She sees Keds and AFH , "as a perfect partnership." AFH is always seeking to answer "what inspires you?"

Nicole and Liz, walking around our studios in their funky Keds, filled us in on the buzz on the MassArt campus. Keds is a sneaker of choice for their artistic classmates, and MassArt students are very excited to be able to tweet their support of Artists For Humanity.

It's going to be a fun afternoon at the Prudential tomorrow. Thanks to our ambassadors for building the excitement and introducing Bostonians and visitors to the work we do here at Artists For Humanity
