Rainbow of Paws Flip Flops

Providing help to people, animals and our planet is as easy as buying some cool stuff! Since 1999, GreaterGood.org has partnered with nonprofits to help raise money through online stores and donation sites. They provide “fast click” shopping and donations through their Gifts That Give More Program™. They also provide grants directly to organizations that enrich the welfare of the global community. To date, they have helped raise more than $30 million for over 150 charities with varying causes such as world hunger, animal rescues, the environment, and Alzheimer’s research. And, by shopping through their websites, you can help them raise money just by buying things you love!
How Your Purchases Help:
Whenever you buy an item through one of GreaterGood.org’s partner sites, 3%-50% of the item’s retail price is kept aside to be granted to charity organizations by GreaterGood.org. They provide an explanation of your contribution on the front page of their websites. For example, if you go to The Animal Rescue Site , your purchase provides 14 bowls of food for rescue animals. If you go to the The Hunger Site, each item you buy provides 50 cups of food for the hungry. You don’t do anything but click, buy and enjoy!
Available on The Animal Rescue Site, these form fitting flip flops are cute and comfortable. They are made out of EVA, a lightweight, durable, rubber-like material. They have wide upper straps adorned with colorful animal paw prints and a textured grip footbed and sole. They run in full sizes, so if you are a half size, order up. Overall, reviewers love these flip flops and their cause. They cost $14.95 (plus shipping) and provide 14 bowls of food for rescue animals.
My “Rainbow of Paws” flip flops arrived about a week after I ordered them and I was sent confirmation emails for both their purchase and shipping. I was really happy with both the shipping time and how easy their website is to navigate. Once I got them, I was also very happy with how well they fit. (I normally wear a 9 1/2 wide, so I ordered them in a size 10, since they only come in full sizes.) They look just like the picture on the website, so I was happy to receive what I really wanted.
As far as comfort, they are exactly what I was expecting. The EVA material is soft and flexible and the footbed is cushy with some shock absorption. I am finding the toe posts to be a tad uncomfortable because they are slightly wider than most toe posts. However, I’m sure this will ease after some wear time. They don’t provide much arch support, but the textured footbed helps keep my feet from sliding around. Since I live in Wisconsin and it is February, I haven’t had a chance to wear them outside. But, so far, they have been great for wearing around the house and I’m excited to wear them this Spring and Summer.
Overall, I’d say that the “Rainbow of Paws” flip flops are a great value. Especially since the help they provide is priceless.
