Their tagline ‘For You. For All.’ is just that. For every pair of Roma Boots sold, a new pair is donated to a child in need.
It begins with their name, Roma meaning amor and amore meaning love! Roma Boots is a ‘buy one give one’ fashionable rain boot company headquartered in Dallas, Texas. It was founded in 2010 by Romanian born Samuel Bistrian who wanted to help children in his home country by combining his love of fashion and philanthropy.
Samuel Bistrian grew up in the remote village of Benesti in pre-revolutionary Romania, where he experienced first hand the struggles one faces growing up in poverty in a communist ruled country. And though Bistrian and his family immigrated to the United States when he was only eight, his parents taught him and his eleven brothers and sisters to never forget their humble beginnings, to display gratitude for the blessings bestowed upon them and to always give back to those less fortunate. So for the next twenty years, giving back is exactly what Bistrian set out to do.
Their mission: to give poverty the ‘boot’ by bringing street children and orphans hope, love and lasting change in the most sustainable and practical way. For every pair of Roma Boots sold, a brand new pair stuffed with educational supplies is donated to a child in need.
Roma’s ultimate goal is not only to provide aid, but to educate. Ten percent of all sales proceeds go to the Roma For All Foundation to help these impoverished children break out of their cycle of poverty and despair. By doing so they will empower these children to contribute their gifts & talents to society, eradicate poverty as a condition and a state of mind to make this world a better place.
Over the last four years, with the help of Roma boots supporters and fans, they’ve been able to donate thousands of Roma Boots in 20 countries on four continents.
We are proud to be partnering with them for this holiday giveaway and look forward to seeing them flourish as they continue to make a huge impact and difference for kids all over the globe. If you would like more information on Roma Boots, please visit their website.
