All month-long we’re celebrating amazing kids doing good in their communities. Meet Leah, our newest PLAE-it-forward ambassador! For her 7th birthday, Leah decided to celebrate with a bake sale big enough to bring a new cleanwater well to a village in India—and Cleanwater Cookies was born. “I wanted kids that are my age to not have to walk four miles to get water,” she said. “I don’t want to have kids miss school and to get sick.”

Her compassion—and scrumptious baking skills!—led her to bake and deliver dozens of cookies, sell her own “Cleanwater Cookiebook,” and collect many more calorie-free donations for her cause. Last year she reached her goal of $5000, enough to fund a well for an entire village!
We’re inspired by Leah’s initiative and love in support of the people of India, and proud to support her through PLAE-it-forward! On every purchase using the checkout code GIVE463, PLAE will donate 10% of the purchase value to Leah’s cause, Living Water. Until April 16th, every shoe order using that code will also score a pair of special edition tabs designed by Leah as a thank you! Her tab design is inspired by her cause, with water-themed cookies and droplets in the colors of the Indian flag. (can’t be combined with any other offers, while supplies last).
