Our ultimate goal is to empower these children to break out of the cycle of poverty by getting them back into the education system where they can learn to take care of themselves.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 04, 2014
Roma Boots, the original "buy one-give one" rain boot company, is proud to announce the launch of a new collection of fashionable and philanthropic rain boots for women and children. Featuring a variety of bold and vibrant colors, Roma’s vivid new collection will make its debut at the esteemed MAGIC Platform Market in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 18, 2014.
Designed with warmth and comfort in mind, Roma Boots are made from 100% natural rubber and come fully equipped with a quick-dry cotton lining and multi-layered cushioned insoles. Able to withstand all types of weather, Roma’s durable boot keeps feet warm and dry even in the harshest of elements while the sleek shape, classic lines, and glossy finish make the perfect fashion statement. The Roma Boots "buy one-give one" philosophy means every purchase directly benefits a child in need. Purchasers walk taller knowing their choice helped improve the life of a child less fortunate. Fashion has never felt so good!
More than just a boot company, Roma Boots was created as a means to help children in need. Romanian-born founder, Samuel Bistrian, knows first hand that providing proper footwear is the first step toward lifting children from poverty. For every pair of Roma Boots sold, a pair is donated to street children and orphans. Since its inception in 2009, Roma Boots has donated thousands of boots to children all around the world, especially those living in cold and wet climates.
"Our ultimate goal is to empower these children to break out of the cycle of poverty by getting them back into the education system where they can learn to take care of themselves," says Bistrian. In addition to donating boots, the company also gives 10% of sales to the Roma Boots Foundation, a nonprofit organization created to help provide books, school supplies and education to the children who receive Roma Boots.

About Roma Boots:
Roma means amor, and amor means love. Roma Boots is a social enterprise that sells fashionable rain boots and donates a pair for each pair sold to street children and orphans living in poverty--especially in cold and wet climates. Roma Boots was founded in 2009 by Romanian-born, Samuel Bistrian, who wanted to help children in his home country by combining his love of fashion with philanthropy.
About the Founder:
Romanian born Samuel Bistrian received his first pair of handed-down rain boots when he was six years old and living in a small village in Transylvania. When he was eight years old, the Communist regime fell, and his family came to America in search of opportunity. After finishing college Bistrian worked in retail. In 2007 he left a department manager position at Neiman Marcus to pursue, his passion to travel, write and help others--especially street children and orphans. He wanted to find the most effective and practical way to help these children break free from poverty, so, for the next two years, pondered ways to combine his love of fashion and philanthropy. After meeting TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie at Neiman Marcus in 2009, he was inspired to start Roma Boots.
