A couple of months ago I wrote about Hari Mari, a flip flop company started by two Highland Park High School grads, and a St. Mark alumnus. The shoes are in stores throughout Dallas, as well as in Austin, Lubbock, Fort Worth, and various other Texas cities. At the rate they are expanding, they may be in stores across the U.S. within a matter of months.
This month, however, the company is donating $6 of every flip flop purchased to Cook Children’s to assist the families and patients served by the hospital’s new cancer center.
Hari Mari is a year-round partner with the hospital and typically donates $3 of every flip flop sold to the pediatric oncology unit, but they are doubling their commitment for the month of July to “Flop Fighting Cancer.” In addition, they are creating flip flop-themed care bags for patients receiving treatment, and will provide patients, doctors, and hospital staff with a pair of their durable shoes.
