Boots made for walking also help Haiti
By Jennifer Browning
Got a mountain in mind to climb? Are the Everglades calling you to traverse it’s ghostly winding paths? Now you can choose your next pair of boots from Timberland, who has created a 16-boot footwear collection specifically for Wyclef Jean’s Yéle Haiti organization. The musician and his organization have teamed up with the Timberland Company to raise global awareness on Haiti, as well as to promote environmental progress.
“Tree” t-shirts designed by art students from Haiti will also be sold in Timberland stores nationwide, with $1 from each sold shirt given back to support art programs and reforestation. The shoes are expected to be released next month.
