Warriors for Wokai (http://www.warriorshoes.org/)
Hey riders, hope the summer has been treating you well, actually have some hope for the East Coast this season. Anyway, a year ago I was introduced to both the Warrior Shoes brand (via the 'Book of Warriors' project) and Wokai (via my cousin who was interning for them). Warrior's WB-1 started out as the Air Jordans of China in the 70s before becoming the shoe of China's working class in the late 90s. Wokai is a charity which provides microloans to the poor in China.
I'm a fan of both so I decided to merge the two into a little cause-marketing project, Warriors for Wokai. Order a pair of WB-1's for yourself and ALL of the profits will be donated to Wokai. Interested? Check the site (http://www.warriorshoes.org/) and spread the word, thanks!
Not a fan of the sneakers? You can still make a difference and donate to Wokai (http://www.wokai.org) directly! No hard feelings, but my WB-1s really do make me type, click and surf faster, though it hasn't gotten me around China's Great Firewall.
*For the tri-state / NYC area folks, please email me at darren '@' warriorshoes.org with your order. We'll do the exchange in person (bypassing PayPal and shipping = more money donated to Wokai). I'm also in China until 8/2 so if you can get your order in before then I can bring the shoe back with me, avoiding more shipping fees.
