Orlando Strong Pretty Flips to Benefit One Orlando
A few weeks ago the unthinkable happened. Whether it was an act of terror or an act of hatred, I think we can agree it was an act of evil. We awoke on a sunny Sunday morning and went about our lives like any ordinary weekend in beautiful Central Florida until news of the Pulse tragedy hit. What happened still doesn’t seem real, and we, like cities around the world, didn’t expect it to happen here in our own backyard.
Our Live Pretty family has been focused on what can we do to support the long-term recovery of the Pulse victims and our community. In the wake of the tragedy, we are introducing Orlando Strong Pretty Flips with all profits going to the One Orlando Fund.
These custom-made flip flops come in adult and child sizes, and feature a special Orlando Strong double ribbon with your choice of a square or round buckle on a black flip flop. They are $30 for adult flips and $25 for child flips.
To place your custom order, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org by July 14, 2016, with your order specifics (please state quantity, size/s and buckle preference in your email). Local orders will be delivered by July 29. (Shipping charges apply to orders outside of Orange and Seminole counties). We will take orders continually, to be fulfilled as they are received after July 29.
All of us have been deeply affected by the events of June 12. It is all too easy to become desensitized as these tragedies seem to occur with alarming frequency. But this one really shook us… and this unthinkable tragedy took place in our home town. This is Orlando. The City Beautiful. The happy place where millions come to visit and enjoy all that our great city has to offer. We are still that great place and we are committed to helping the Pulse victims, their families and our community.
We are #orlandostrong, forever and always.
