A new year means new opportunities to continue giving back! It’s 2022 and Vionic Cares is in action, working towards supporting a brighter future for people from all walks of life. This philanthropic branch of Vionic Shoes strategically connects with charitable partners on a range of causes focused on environmental sustainability, health and wellness, women’s interests, and childhood cancer.
Following an incredibly impactful 2021, Vionic Cares is proud to announce that it will continue its long standing partnership with the San Francisco/Bay Area chapter of Dress for Success, a global organization that aims to empower women through the tools they need to grow professionally and in life. Currently, Dress for Success operates in 23 countries and serves over 1.2 million women. Last year, Vionic Cares was on their side, donating Vionic shoes and $20,000 of financial aid to the organization.
To get energized for the year ahead, let’s take a look at a few of our Dress for Success highlights from 2021:
Stretch for Success
Together, Dress for Success and Vionic Cares kicked off 2021 with Stretch for Success, a virtual yoga event. Vionic donated 100 pairs of new shoes to Dress for Success clients, women in their job search program and members of the Professional Women’s Group.
At the beginning of December 2021, Vionic spread some holiday cheer and sponsored a designer pop-up shop at the annual Dress for Success Holiday Soirée. The event took place in San Francisco and allowed people to make a positive impact in the community while getting an opportunity to have some fun shopping.
While both events were a success, the lasting impact and importance of them really plays out after the fact. Carmela, a Dress for Success client, sums it up: “I’d like to express my gratitude to you for making this possible and to thank the generosity of Vionic for the opportunity to get a pair of their shoes. I chose the Lani black leather boots. They feel and look great, and will give me added confidence to go out and continue making things happen for myself and others!”
Making a difference where and when we can is what Vionic Cares is all about—supporting opportunity from the ground up. Ready for another year of giving and impact? Let’s go!
