Those of you who know me or who regularly read this blog or BODO’s other websites will know how excited I am by the recent partnership between
BODO and Barefoot Foundation (Pies Descalzos Foundation). When we announced the partnership back in August, I knew BODO had taken a huge step towards fulfilling our dreams and mission statement.
For the company, forging this partnership was a huge achievement, because not only does it assist us with our target of delivering BODO’s Donation Sandal to those in the biggest need, it is also an excellent opportunity to work with an established organisation that already has a long-standing reputation for the excellent work they have done thus far.
Since we first announced the partnership, we have been in regular contact with Barefoot Foundation and have been negotiating the ways in which we can go forward. So it is with a happy heart that this week I can announce that we have just successfully delivered our first package of Donation Sandals to Barefoot Foundation for them to hand out as they see fit.
For me, this is a big milestone as it’s the first delivery of this kind in what I hope will be a long and successful partnership which will greatly benefit both organisations. I look forward to many more deliveries of this kind and know that it will go a long way towards helping us achieve our goal of bringing about real and lasting social change.
