Havaianas showed over 3,000 public elementary students that they care as they gave out a pair each to these jolly kids. The colorful Havaianas surely brightened up the day of the students from Sto. Tomas Elementary School – Annex and Dayap Elementary School – Annex in BayaniJuan in Calauan, Laguna. The class adviser of the students pictured here looks pleased to see the kids showing off the gift they just received.

The distribution of goods was done by ABS-CBN Foundation’s Programa Genio. Programa Genio is the educational advocacy arm of ABS-CBN Foundation Inc.
