Being a nurse can be tough on your feet, with the long hours of standing and running around. There’s nothing worse than being on your feet all day and wearing uncomfortable shoes, this can only make the days seem longer than they really are. As a travel nurse or nurse in general, the number one thing to remember is that you want to be as comfortable as possible to be able to make it through the long and arduous days and it all begins with your feet.
Starting today and running through the end of the year, Dansko, a shoe company that specializes in clogs as well as heels, boots, sandals, wedges and flats, has partnered with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation offering an exclusive Dansko Pink Ribbon Professional Clog. Proceeds from every pair of Pink Ribbon Clogs sold between now and the end of the year (12/31/2010) will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® up to a maximum donation of $25,000.
Dansko Pink Ribbon Clog is available now from select retailers. Visit Dansko.com to find retailers in your area who are carrying the clog.
In addition to the clog, Dansko will be hosting a series of retail promotions around the country with limited edition gift with purchase giveaways and a special website dedicated to the cause. Most people know someone tested by the disease. Their determination and perseverance is an inspiration to us all. Dansko has set up a forum to share stories and recognize these heroes. These announcements can be made and viewed at Dansko.com/pinkribbon.
So get yourself a pair or two and help support such a worthy cause… I’m sure we all know someone who has been affected by this terrible disease and what better way to help them and others while helping your feet.
