EVERY MOMENT COUNTS

Operation Red Shoes came out of a random set of circumstances similar to the randomness of teenage cancer. Luis Aguilar, our red shoe fanatic, passed away in the early morning of Valentine’s Day, 2015.

Luis’ friends and family set out to order red shoes from Zappos for those who would attend Luis’ memorial service. Terrible weather conditions were making it difficult for Zappos to deliver the order, and a manager at Zappos happened to listen to a 1 in 10,000 sample customer service call.

This manager heard the story of Luis and McKendree, and although they were unable to navigate the unpredicted weather, they were inspired. They invited McKendree and her friends to the Zappos headquarters in Las Vegas for a weekend of carefree fun in memory of Luis and his red shoes. Out of these random events, Operation Red Shoes was born.

Friends, I don't do this often here...but for those of you who don't know and are wondering what all these posts are for...we have discovered the most tragically beautiful love story over the last several months. Luis passed away this Valentine's Day at the age of 22 to his 4-yr battle with cancer. He had a deep love for music, life, and his favorite pair of red shoes. He impacted so many of his closest friends and family members around him with his positivity. Though he may be gone, he continues to impact the world around him. We will be sharing a lot more in the coming months about how we've been graced by his story. For now, I'd love for any of you to follow imnotabox and #operationredshoes to be ready to support and learn more! xoxo ...

This picture doesn't do it justice at all, but we were absolutely blown away by the story of Danny Thomas and St. Jude's. This is a dedication from some of the leading newspaper cartoonists in honor of Danny for the rest of his family. Thank you mckendreee and everyone who took time to show us around today. It's incredible to see everything that they've done and will continue to do. #operationredshoes #stjudes ...
