Nick Cannon was busy with his Project C.A.N.V.A.S shoe auction in NYC yesterday to raise money and awareness for arts programs in New York City schools. Last we saw Mr and Mrs Cannon they were on tour with Mariah in Europe, and celebrating dembabies first birthday. Today however Mariah tweeted a cute pic of herself holding up some pretty snazzy sparkly sneakers supporting her hubby’s charitable and fun project. Check out Mariah’s self-designed shoes and find out what Nick’s project is all about.

I’m so excited to be hosting the Project C.A.N.V.A.S x Urban Arts shoe art auction in NYC this Friday! Our goal is to raise money and awareness for art programs in NYC schools, which are suffering due to budget cuts. Project C.A.N.V.A.S (CAN Visually Achieve Success) encourages people to use their imagination to create one-of-a kind shoes that showcase their individual style and personality.
Mariah tweeted, “At Nick’s launch for project canvas. The shoes.. Come on.. A winner!” along with the following cute photo.
Project C.A.N.V.A.S (CAN Visually Achieve Success) was founded upon the principal that within every person lies a wealth of creativity. It is a project that set out to empower youth and young adults across the world to believe in themselves. People are inspired by Project C.A.N.V.A.S to treat life as a canvas upon which they have the power to create their own masterpiece. Every project C.A.N.V.A.S pair of shoes is one of a kind, decorated with abstract versions of the primary colors. The three basic color platform provides a foundation for self-expression, individuality, and creativity. The Project C.A.N.V.A.S concept is a vibrant, yet simplistic aesthetic that serves as a base for art, culture, and fashion to be expressed in a unique format accessible to all. Life is like a canvas. It begins blank and everyday is another brushstroke. Make your life a masterpiece.
It’s a cool idea, ain’t it? I would love to make some of my own unique, one of a kind shoes. I’m guessing Mariah’s sequined gold sneakers are her designs, she is a total sparkle girl. Nick is fabulous with charitable work and great community projects. I’m such a fan of his, and hers! Yay for the Cannons and yay for Project C.A.N.V.A.S. I hope that it was a big success.
Here are 2 more cute pics of Mr and Mrs Cannon from the event launch. I didn’t expect to see Mariah wearing sneakers with her little black dress :)
