The Flip–Flop Appeal

The Flip–Flop Appeal is SERVE’s National Fundraising campaign

Flip-flops are the footwear of the poorest people of the world.  The Flip-Flop Appeal is a gesture of solidarity, service and a determination to work together.  Each May, SERVE sells fair-trade flip-flop pins, which have been produced by the Regina Centre‘s skills training and employment project in Nong Khai, Thailand.

The Flip-Flop Appeal works on three fronts:

(1) Supporting fair trade

(2) Raising awareness

(3) Generating funds that make a significant difference to people’s lives
