Tieks believes teachers (and moms!) like me deserve comfort and a little pampering right now as we head back to school. Maybe some of you took advantage of the Los Angeles-based online shoe retailer’s #TieksforTeachers offer last month – I know I did. I really appreciated Tieks rewarding and supporting our teachers while getting extra-comfy shoes onto their feet!
I bought my first pair of Tieks about three years ago when another mom told me about the brand, and I have been swearing by these comfy flats ever since.
So, get ready to fall in love with Tieks!
I am sure you’ll enjoy wearing these unbelievably comfortable ballet flats and, like me, also fall in love with Tieks as a company, as they regularly support our vital communities, especially the heroes and heroines on the front lines of this very challenging pandemic. Last year, the company organized a mask campaign for healthcare workers by launching Operation #SewTogether, which brought together members of the Tieks community to sew and provide facemasks for essential health personnel. The campaign offered easy instructions to make the masks at home and rewarded participants with discount gift cards for their contributions. This campaign provided over a million facemasks to essential health workers in Los Angeles County and across the U.S.
Shortly after that, Tieks launched the #TieksforHeroes campaign, thanking frontline medical, first responder, and military personnel who served on the frontlines with gift cards toward a pair of Tieks ballet flats. Then last month, Tieks focused on supporting our front-line workers in education, thanking them for their contributions with $75 gift cards while providing chic and comfy shoes they can wear all day long in the classroom.
“We knew our heroes fighting Covid-19 on the frontlines deserved some extra attention and support,” noted Kfir Gavrieli, Tieks CEO and President. So they decided to extend the discount to educators to thank them for all they were doing during these difficult times. According to Gavrieli, “We hope Tieks can keep our teachers comfortable as they keep our schools safe and operating.”
So to all my friends out there who are now intrigued and want to know more about Tieks: They make the world’s most versatile shoes for all those (like me!) who value style, comfort, durability, and portability in a pair of ballet flats that feel like slippers on your feet. But when I buy a pair of Tieks I feel good all over, not just my feet, because of the good works of Tieks’ philanthropic arm, the Gavrieli Foundation. This foundation is committed to supporting women’s empowerment and is currently the largest individual lender on the Kiva micro-lending platform, securing over $10,000,000 in funds for women entrepreneurs to implement innovative ideas in impoverished communities around the world. I am proud to support them in their works, while also giving my hard-working feet a break!
