Illustration for article titled Frat Boys Walking in High Heels for Charity Is Quite a Sight to Behold

It's not often that you associate a pack of frat boys with a campaign to raise awareness about sexual abuse and violence against women, but sometimes life offers up a nice surprise. This group of fraternity brothers at Western Kentucky University got together to walk—or at least try to walk—a mile while wearing pairs of red stilettos. They're quite a vision, stumbling across campus like a pack of newly-born foals trying to find their legs. They subjected themselves to this agony as part of the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes campaign, and they raised an impressive $1,000 for Hope Harbor, a rape crisis center. The whole thing warms your heart, but Kyle Smith's comment is particularly charming:

I just want to give shout outs to all the women who actually do wear high heels, 'cause they are extremely hard to walk in. So I just don't know how they do it. It hurts real bad.

Indeed it does, Kyle—and he says it with such sweet sincerity that it makes you want to give him a big old hug. Actually, while we're at it, let's give all of these guys a hearty high five for risking their feet to support such a worthy cause.
