Posted: January 12, 2011 in Uncategorized

Now is your chance to get cool shoes and be a humanitarian in the process, so mark your calendar and start 2011 right!

Oliberté "Rovia" Shoe in Navy

This Friday 1/14 – Sunday 1/16 only, 1% of every purchase made on Roozt.com will be donated to GiveRunning.org, an inspiring organization that puts shoes on children in need from all around the world!

This weekend’s Roozt Daily Deal will feature Oliberté Footwear. An incredible company that makes premium leather shoes for guys and girls, the company combines the heritage of African artisans with forward-thinking design and technique. All footwear is made in Ethiopia with 100% natural leather and constructed with over 1,000 stitches by men and women that are paid and treated fairly – all part of their belief that Africa is full of pride, power and liberty.

 

ROOZT DEAL: $100 value Oliberté Footwear gift cards will be sold for just $45. A savings of 55%!

Give Running is an inspiring nonprofit that collects, cleans, and donates new & gently-used running shoes (plus a set of brand new socks for each pair of shoes!) to disadvantaged youth both in Third World countries and inner city communities here in the United States.

  • In many Third World nations, it is required for children to wear shoes to attend school. Many children miss out on the opportunity for a quality education, solely because their families cannot afford to buy them a pair of shoes. Give Running changes that.

Give Running Founder Greg Woodburn distributes shoes in Mali.

  • Even in America, finances cause many living in the inner cities to miss out on the joys, freedoms, and opportunities that running brings. A member of the USC Track & Field team, Give Running Founder Greg Woodburn understands the healthy outlet that running can provide, and works hard to provide quality running shoes to disadvantaged youth and teens here in the U.S., as well as abroad.
