Crocs Donates Shoes to Children in Gaza and Tanzania
Posted April 2, 2010on:
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.
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.
