Nomadic State of Mind Announces New Non-Profit Donation Program

Share Article

Nomadic State of Mind, a grass roots sandal company specializing in hand-made sandals and organic apparel, has begun a new monthly non-profit donation program “Nomo Loves N.G.O.’s (non governmental organizations)”. Each month a portion of select sandal sales go towards a cause that may hit close to home for one, or all, of the Nomadic Team. Past recipients of their NGO donation have included the Alzheimer's Foundation and the Falcons Children’s Home in Fayetteville, NC. This month is particularly personal, and they have decided to expand the donation to a portion of all sales.

A portion of all sales will go to Rise Up Laurie

Chris Anderson, owner and founder of Nomadic State of Mind, had this to say about their monthly giveaway, “December - the month of holidays for most religions and a time of family and friends! This month we are giving a portion of all our sales, to a friend... Laurie, our friend, had been our neighbor at many festivals for many years, she worked for another company, Little Hippie.  Always with a smile and a good vibe, she carried that kind of positive attitude that makes you smile. This summer Laurie fell out of a tree, and is now paralyzed from the waist down. She is in a lot of rehab, and some experimental medicine for spinal trauma.”

Laurie fell from a tree on June 9th while in a friends back yard. She immediately knew she had been paralyzed and spent the next two months in the hospital recovering. Since then she has been undergoing outpatient therapy three times a week. She has already taken part in a number of fundraisers to benefit spinal injury research and therapy. She was also recently asked to take part in a trial of EKSO Bionics Exoskeleton at the Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation.

Anderson continued, “Laurie continues to carry that positive spirit and a strength that is unimaginable. We can't even touch the amount of medical expenses she and her family are going to incur, but we want to contribute something.  Since we assume that most everybody who goes to our site has feet, and intends to walk in sandals, may we all be grateful for a moment that we can walk.”

More information about Laurie can be found at Rise Up Laurie.
