Kid's range just launched. Buy buying a pair of Moeloco thongs, you are giving a pair of closed shoes to poor kids.
More than 300 million children in the world have no shoes and rarely attending school,
Australian Kathy Wong knew that she had to do something about it. Kathy created Moeloco, a brand of thongs (flip flops) with positive messages of peace and love printed on the soles. For every pair of thongs sold, Moeloco donates canvas shoes to a child in poverty.
'In rural India, the children may walk through snake infested fields, across dust tracks, or around local reservoirs to reach school. They also have a high risk of picking up infections from the ground, as they wade through human waste, toxic waters, and cesspools.
'It is hard to imagine this reality, but we are making a difference through my crazy Moeloco dream! Thongs are everyday shoes to most of us, but to the poor children in India, they are life-saving luxuries."
Moeloco thongs come in five different designs and are available in six shoe sizes. The designs are printed on the soles of the thongs, with messages including -Live Love', -Dream Crazy', -Because I'm Happy', -I am peace', and -I am grateful'.
Kathy said, 'When you wear Moeloco thongs, and walk in the sand, you are truly leaving messages of inspiration. We also have two thongs specifically designed for men and have just launched a kid's range. The first shoe in this line was designed by a vibrant seven year old girl from Manly."
