Crocs Cares & The Margaret Okari Children’s Foundation

For a few months, Crocs Cares worked with board members of the Margaret Okari Children’s Foundation to set up a donation of shoes for all of the students at the Margaret Okari School in Kisii, Kenya. The children had no idea the shoes were on their way and the pictures below prove it! Thank you to the staff at Margaret Okari Children’s Foundation and the Margaret Okari School for your commitment to providing comfort and happiness to children! If you are interested in learning more about our donation and the Margaret Okari Children’s Foundation, please visit http://educating-aids-orphans-in-africa.org.
