Meet Emily, our newest PLAE-it-forward ambassador, and her best friend Ava. Ava has Cystic Fibrosis (CF), and Emily wanted to find a way to support her after learning there’s no known cure.

“I had the idea of selling ribbon barrettes to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) after learning how to make them two summers ago," said Emily. The money Emily made was donated to Great Strides, one of the largest fundraising efforts that the CFF does to raise money for research. She has since sold hundreds of barrettes through Ribbon Barrettes 4 Research and raised awareness of CF through social media. Fantastic job, Emily!
Emily’s initiative and creativity are certainly inspiring, and we’re so excited to partner with her for the PLAE-it-forward program! On every purchase using the checkout code GIVE994, PLAE will donate 10% of the purchase value to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in support of Ava and Emily. Until April 30th, every shoe order using that code will also score a pair of special edition tabs showcasing the signature Ribbon Barrette design as a thank you! (can’t be combined with any other offers, while supplies last).
