Singer and de­signer Katy Perry is lend­ing her sup­port for a cause. She has been named the 2018 PSA am­bas­sador for the 25th an­niver­sary of QVC presents FFANY Shoes on Sale.

Perry, whose epony­mous shoe brand launched in Fe­bru­ary 2017, is con­tin­u­ing her work within the footwear in­dus­try and will serve as the am­bas­sador for the an­nual char­ity gala, which aims to find a cure for breast cancer.

In a state­ment, she said, “This is an is­sue that is near and dear to my heart, es­pe­cially be­cause my aunt passed away from it in 1986. I have al­ways been proud to sup­port the cause and am grate­ful to have yet another plat­form to help find a cure.”

The fundraiser has gen­er­ated $55 mil­lion for first-step breast cancer re­search, with more than 2 mil­lion pairs of shoes do­nated through the years. This year, the Fash­ion Footwear Char­i­ta­ble Foun­da­tion will be dis­tribut­ing grants to nine lead­ing cancer in­sti­tu­tions in the United States.
