When was the last time you made someone else smile? That is the question Havaianas asks you as it launches the Havaianas Design a Smile 2, a flip-flops design contest for the benefit of Operation Smile Philippines.
Havaianas Design a Smile was first launched in 2010.
Havaianas Design a Smile showcases children’s artistic abilities by designing Havaianas flipflops which will be made into an actual Havaianas pair. Percentage of the sales from these designs will benefit Operation Smile Philippines. Operation Smile Philippines is a non-profit organization that give surgeries to children with cleft palates and cleft lips.
The first Havaianas Design a Smile competition had over 2,000 entries and raised more than Php100,000 pesos from donations.
“Havaianas believes that summer is a state of mind and can be lived every day of the year whenever you adopt a happy and carefree attitude,“ shares Anne Gonzalez, Managing Director of Havaianas Philippines. “And nowhere else is that more evident than in children. With Havaianas Design a Smile, we hope to generate funds and awareness to support Operation Smile in our shared mission to spread smiles all over the world.”
Starting this November till to January, Havaianas Design a Smile 2 is back, with the theme “Paying it Forward: Kids Helping Kids.”
