My name is Maria Luisa Campodonico. I am a high school teacher and founder of MaLu. I am strongly committed to making change in the lives of the most vulnerable children from Canada and around the world. Children in the developing world dream of good health, free education, clean water, good nutrition, medical and school supplies. Even many children in the developed world are lacking many of these essentials. Therefore, after many years of working on different initiatives to help our local, and international children have a better quality of life, I have come up with my own product, which will not only provide the customer with beautiful design, high quality, and comfort, but at the same time will directly contribute to organizations that are committed to improving the quality of children's lives. MaLu's mission is to donate 5% of every pre-tax shoe sale to organizations that strive to make children's dreams a reality. Today, you can sponsor our most vulnerable children, youth, and their families with your purchase. Every time you buy a pair of shoes with the Malu logo, feel wholesome for the contribution, and support you are providing to a charity serving your local community.
