fibi & clo’s mission is to design fabulous sandals and products that give all women the opportunity to look, feel and walk with a sparkle in their step, while giving back to the many women that need a little more help with getting back on their feet and need for a little more sparkle in their life.
fibi & clo decided to create a foundation called “Her Cause.” Based on Nancy Weaver’s dedication to helping other woman that need a little help to get back their sparkle. Nancy had been calling charities throughout Texas, and during one call was told about the victims of domestic abuse, and how to escape their abusers would need to undergo daring escapes.
When she heard that the women on the other end of the phone, who headed up the charity, was also a domestic abuse survivor, and that she had to escape her own abuser in the middle of the night barefoot and with no possessions, Nancy knew how to bring a sparkle back into the lives of victims of domestic abuse.
fibi & clo has teamed up with domestic abuse shelters throughout the state of Texas to donate sandals, time and money. You would have to be there to witness it, but the power of a new pair of sandals really can make someone’s day absolutely incredible, especially if they have just lost everything.
As example of this, Nancy and a small team headed to a shelter in Tyler, Tx. After dropping off a shipment of shoes, the Director of the shelter invited the team back to meet some of the women. Upon arrival 90 women, all wearing their newly gifted fibi & clo sandals and all with huge smiles, warmly embraced the team. That moment is a driving force for everyone who participates with the Her Cause foundation.
Each shelter fibi & clo visits is unique in its own way, but they all shared a common thread; women helping fellow women. The care and compassion of the women working at the shelters is amazing. They give their hearts and souls to help women in need. In addition to the sandals, fibi & clo routinely organizes giving events where fibi & clo fashion agents and volunteers can donate their time to create shoe boutiques within the shelters where residents can “shop” for their sandal donation. It’s truly an amazing experience for everyone involved.
