Flooding in Peru

Posted by Evan Streusand on

In March of this year, weeks of rain led to rising rivers and flooding and mudslides, affecting more than half a million people in and around Lima. The people of Peru are near and dear to our hearts, so to help even just a little we will be donating $25 to Fundacion Oli for each pair of shoes purchased from us through the holiday weekend.

The Atlantic has a photo gallery detailing the devastation here.
