Our Sincere Thanks to Michelle Lacourciere, Director of Sirona Cares for the Successful Collaboration Between Flip Flop Fleet and Project Jatropha
Flip Flop Fleet is an organization that collects and distributes flip flops, sandals, and other footwear to those in need all over the world, so no parent has to choose between feeding their children or buying them shoes. Michele of Sirona Cares introduced us to Dawn and Lee, the founders of Flip Flop Fleet. The two are amazing people who are involved in extraordinary activities to help the unfortunate. For more info visit there blog: http://www.flipflopfleet.blogspot.com/. They donated 70 pairs of flip flops and sandals. We carried them to a child labor rehabilitation residential school, called DEED, which stands for Development through Education. None of the children here had footwear. These children are used to walking around barefooted on a rough terrain. Despite that, they were eager to receive the generous gift and promised to take good care of the footwear. Thanks again to Dawn, Lee, and Michele for bringing joy into these kids' lives.
Adarsha, Apoorva, and Callie
