The New Shoes
Painting - Good Intentions
100% of profits from sales of cards and other prints of this Red Cross authorized painting go directly to the American Red Cross!
Also, I count up the comments here from time to time and pay the Red Cross a dollar for each one. So, thank you for commenting!
This painting was done from a WWII B/W photo, "New Shoes," by Gerald Waller, Austria, 1946, for the American Red Cross. ~~
Please search: "New Shoes" by Gerald Waller
Featured is WERFEL, A 6-YEAR-OLD AUSTRIAN ORPHAN, hugging a new pair of shoes from American children through the Junior Red Cross at the end of WWII. The photograph sparked an outpouring of clothing and other donations for the orphanage in Vienna. ~~
When a big box from the American Red Cross arrived at Vienna's Am Himmel orphanage, shoes and coats and dresses tumbled out. Like the youngster pictured here, the children who had seen no new clothes throughout the war smiled to high heaven. ~~ Life Magazine
