How to Support International Flip Flop Day

No, we’re not pulling your leg, or your foot for that matter, there really is such a thing as International Flip Flop Day. Masterminded by Rob and Paul Forkan, the brothers behind Gandys, International Flip Flop Day is a chance to not only show off your feet but also help raise funds for The Gandys Foundation. Sound intriguing? Here’s what you need to know about this annual event.

Are you sure this isn’t a joke?
Far from it. A global initiative to raise funds for The Gandys foundation, International Flip Flop Day not only remembers Rob and Paul’s parents who tragically died during the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami but it also helps to make the brothers’ dream of opening their first orphanage possible.

Wow, that sounds like a good cause
It really is. Using the slogan ‘Orphans for Orphans,’ Rob and Paul have already worked with orphanages in India but it is their aim to create their own children’s home by December this year. 10% of their profits already go towards The Gandys Foundation so for once you really can say that shopping is a worthwhile activity.

You can indeed. How can I get involved?
It’s easy. All you have to do is take a picture of you in your Gandys and tweet it to @Gandysflipflops with #orphansfororphans. Remember to text flop14£2 to 70070 to donate. Alternatively, donations can be made by clicking here.
