Art with a Heart

You hear it all the time — “we have amazing or generous or kind or smart staff on our team”. Well, at Sklar Furnishings we truly do, and we would love to share the story.

Felipe Galindo, who has been with us for over 10 years as our head installer, is all of the above. Felipe has a wonderful gift — he is an extremely accomplished artist who does portraits that take your breath away, they are so realistic (www.fgportraits.net). A few weeks ago, he decided to hand-paint simple white canvas running shoes in many different themes, from Frozen to Star Wars to Dory and anything else you could imagine.

Felipe’s plan is simple — he will take all of the profits from selling them and buy shoes (which again he will decorate) and distribute them to kids in need. Selling Wacky Shoes at $50 a pair has already allowed him to send 8 pairs to his native Colombia, and to purchase another 20 pairs which are promised for the Florence Fuller Grade 4 Snoopy class graduation August 4th — guess who will be on all of those shoes!

If you are interested in getting a one-of-a-kind pair of hand-painted running shoes, contact Felipe at https://www.facebook.com/wackyhelpingshoes/.

Art with a heart, indeed! Felipe, we are proud to have you on Team Sklar and applaud your generosity and kindness.
