Crocs Donates Shoes to Children in Gaza and Tanzania

Posted on: April 2, 2010

This youngster from the the Al Fajer preschool is thrilled with her new pair of purple Crocs.

In March, Crocs shoes were donated to children in both Gaza and Tanzania.

In Gaza, more than 7,000 pairs of Crocs shoes were distributed to needy families with the help of the American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA) group and the UK-based non-profit PACES.

The Crocs donation is part of ANERA’s Shoes for Gaza initiative that began in the wake of the 2009 bombings when an ANERA donor raised $5,000 through a Facebook campaign to provide shoes for Gaza’s children.

Crocs Donation to Orphanage

The Tanzanian Children’s Fund received Crocs for the Rift Valley Children’s Village in the Karatu District of Tanzania. The orphanage was thrilled with the donation and its children were excited to show of their “happy feet.”

Crocs is pleased to be able to partner with organizations like these in order to provide needed goods such as shoes to children around the world.

Wow! Great work. Would you be interested in donating shoes to the children in Haiti?

It’s so lucky for me to find your blog! So shocking and great! Just one suggestion: It will be better and easier to follow if your blog can offer rrs subscription service.
