Today is International Fetal Alcohol Awareness Day. I am rocking my Red Shoes.
Our logo says "Start the Conversation... Ask me" FASD Red Shoes Rock.
Why do I rock my Red Shoes?
For my children who were born affected by prenatal alcohol exposures.
For all children who have yet to be born with FASD.
For all the families who are raising children with FASD
For all the children who have yet to be diagnosed with FASD.
For all the adults who are living with FASD.
For all the adults who do not know that they have FASD.
For all the individuals who have a lifetime of medical and chronic illnesses because of FASD.
For all those who are supporting those with FASD
For all the teachers and schools who do not know how to help children who have FASD.
For all the communities who do not know how to help children & families who are affected by FASD
For all the medical and mental health professionals who need to know about FASD.
For all the researchers who are trying to find answers to help those with FASD.
For all the systems that have yet to find supports for those with FASD
For all the governments that need to learn so that they can support those with FASD.
For the world to wake up to the knowledge about FASD
For my daughter who died because she had FASD.

Last year I learned about how to make Red Shoes Rock Gear at Thirty One Gifts. I rock my Red Shoes while I carry my catch all bag with all Mac's gear and while grocery shopping and more.
I posted a picture of my bag the other day as Mac and I headed to his medical appointment in the city. A couple of people asked me where I got it from. Finally I have time to sit down and blog the instructions!
First go to https://www.mythirtyone.com/us/en/ and find a consultant near you. If you do not know of a consultant you can always support my friend Katy Pitzen, Lancaster WI. She has a medically fragile daughter and I want to support her in her business.
The bag is the Crossbody Organizing Tote
Charcoal Crosshatch $38.00 Plus Personalization is $10.00
Find the Crossbody Organizing Tote Charcoal Crosshatch.
Now it will ask you to personalize your tote.
Click on the Charcoal Crosshatch
Then Click on 2.
Scroll down until you find the blue Tennis Shoes. Click on it.
Then the Design Color button will pop up. Change it to Red.
Click 3 to do the text for the bag.
Fill in the box for the text: Red Shoes RockThen pick the color of the thread: White
Then pick the font you want to use. I used Chalkboard.
Then it will pop up the sample of your bag.
Click 4 and save your design to your shopping cart.
You did it! You created your own Red Shoes Rock Logo Awareness Gear
I hope that you got it to work for you!
If you have any questions. Let me know by commenting on the post.
My other favorite is my Large Utility Tote- Gray Crosshatch Item Code: 3121 $35.00
It is perfect for grocery shopping or heading out wear you need to carry a lot like the beach or a picnic. For me it is my carry-all for heading out to raise awareness about Fetal Alcohol Syndrome with all my gear!
I can Rock My Red Shoes and also Rock my Red Gear all year!
