Who doesn’t like May days, especially the end of May days. Days are getting warmer and warmer and sun comes out stronger and stronger. Let’s go out to get more Vitamin D into your body, picnic is one of my favorite things to do with friends and family at weekends. At this memorial day long weekend, do you have your picnic plans? I do! I will bring my new favorite Roma boot with me. No matter the whole day goes sunny all the way, or the weather changes immediately to give us a shower. Roma rain boot meets all weather – it is definitely pretty enough to match with a romantic date dress, and it is strong enough to keep your feet wet from the rain.
On April 3, 2010, despite being in the middle of an economic recession, Samuel Bistrian started ROMA Boots, the company that merges fashion with philanthropy to ‘Give Poverty the Boot.’ After spending years working at Neiman Marcus, Bistrian developed a passion for quality and customer service and wanted to take that a step further by giving back to people in need. Growing up extremely poor, he realized how big the impact of rain boots are in a child’s life in poverty-stricken countries and from that, his business model was created.
“I never considered myself a businessman or even an entrepreneur. Even when I wanted to leave Neiman Marcus to start ROMA, some of my superiors told me that it was a poor decision, and to some degree they were right. I did not have much of a plan as the country was in a recession. I had $5,000 in my bank account, significant credit card debt and student loans, but over all of that, I had passion,” explained Samuel Bistrian, Founder and CEO of ROMA Boots.
With the mission of bringing impoverished children throughout the world hope, love, and lasting change through aid and education, for every pair of boots sold, a new pair is donated to a child in need. ROMA‘s ultimate goal is not only to provide aid but to educate. By doing so ROMA is empowering impoverished children around the world to break out of the cycle of poverty and contribute their gifts and talents to society.
