SEATTLE, Nov. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — OnlineShoes.com is pleased to announce successful results from its partnership with Patagonia, Inc. during the Patagonia Advocate Weeks program. For each pair of Patagonia shoes purchased at OnlineShoes.com during October 4-17, 2011, Patagonia contributed $10 to Healthy Child Healthy World.

“We are so happy to have had the opportunity to partner with Patagonia and play a part in supporting this fantastic organization. Healthy Child Healthy World is making an important difference and OnlineShoes.com is proud to support the good work they do,” says Joseph Pisano, OnlineShoes.com buyer.
Healthy Child Healthy World works to promote healthier environments for children. Nancy and James Chuda founded the organization in 1991, after they lost their four-year-old daughter to cancer caused by in-utero exposure to pesticides. The organization advocates for change at all levels of society, from lobbying for governmental and corporate policy changes to encouraging responsible consumer choices.
A leading national voice in the discussion of toxins and environmental hazards, Health Child Healthy World has educated parents on the dangers that can be found around the average home. Countless people now maintain healthier homes for children due to the collective voice of medical doctors, politicians, celebrities and activists.
The Patagonia Advocate Weeks program was started in 2010 to partner with retailers and support worthy organizations. These organizations meet the guidelines established by 1% For The Planet (more information below).
