Here are the Summer Sandals You've Been Looking For...

These sandals are way too cute!! I want a pair badly... I may have to chat with Chris about getting a pair later tonight :) The company is called Sseko [say-ko] and not only are their sandals adorable, they are asocially responsible choice as well. Click the link above to read the full story and visit the website.
You can tie them in so many different ways and instead of buying 5 different pairs, you can buy extra laces {for a great price} and re-lace them to match whatever you are wearing that day!!! Such a great idea!
Here is some info I took from the website:
"...These women are graduates of the Cornerstone Leadership Academy and employees of Sseko Designs.

Sseko \say-ko\ Designs was created to help these bright young women continue their education. The Ugandan school system is designed with a nine month gap between secondary school and university. These nine months are intended to allow time for students to earn money for tuition before continuing on to university. However, in an impoverished and male dominated society, many of these young women struggle to find fair work during this time.

Sseko Designs hires recent secondary school graduates for this nine month period to live and work together, while earning money that will go directly towards their university education. These women will not make sandals forever. They will go on to be doctors, lawyers, politicians, writers and teachers that will bring change and unification to a country divided and ravished by a 22 year-long war."
{my personal fav pair right now!}
So go buy a pair and help these beautiful women out!
