During this period, select styles of pediped® shoes will be marked down as much as 50 percent on pediped.com.

These donations include more than $445,000 to the Make-A-Wish foundation, which has helped to grant 60 wishes for children. pediped® footwear also donated $80,000 worth of shoes each to the children of Haiti and to Japanese Earthquake victims.
In 2011, The pediped foundation™ was established to work with charities that are dedicated to the health, education, basic necessities and the personal fulfillment of children around the world. The management and employees of pediped® donate the resources necessary to fund The pediped foundation™ so that 100 percent of the funds raised go directly to these life changing charities.
