The Ruby Slippers worn by Judy Garland in the 1939 film ‘Wizard of Oz’ have lost their colour and without restoration, will slowly deteriorate into nothing!
So on Monday, the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History launched a fundraising campaign to restore the slippers. They are hoping for $300,000 by November 16th, through a Kickstarter campaign called ‘Keep Them Ruby’. To donate or to learn more, click HERE.
