History of the Crocs Giveaway
This is the second year of the Crocs giveaway—it all began in 2020, when the company decided to give back to the healthcare workers fighting the pandemic head-on. Since 2020, Crocs has donated nearly 1 million pairs of Crocs to healthcare workers. And this year, they’re showing no signs of stopping. Plus, they’re teaming up with FIGSs, so winners will get both a free pair of scrubs and a fear pair of Crocs. Brilliant.
Last year, Nurse.org highlighted the story of how the giveaway began—when Kaleigh McDonald, an ICU nurse at Morristown Medical Center in New Jersey, was home on maternity leave, but still found a way to join her coworkers in the fight against the coronavirus.
The nurse, after hearing stories of increasing cases of COVID-19 at their hospital, decided to organize a supply drive as a way to help. But along with masks, gloves, and a sanitizer, McDonald had a rather unusual request to support her fellow nurses--she asked for Crocs.
Crocs Against Coronavirus
Why Crocs? Well, as a nurse who has worked in ICU, McDonald is acutely aware of the lengths that healthcare professionals are being forced to go through to try to prevent bringing the virus home with them. On a regular basis, nurses take precautions with things such as only wearing designated hospital jackets, changing their shoes outside or leaving them at the hospital, and sanitizing any items that they use at the hospital, such as keys and bags.
Knowing first hand how seemingly “small” things--like your shoes--can be an unknowing source of transmission, McDonald has used her lens as a nurse to realize that Crocs donations could help nurses on the front lines have a little bit of an easier time protecting their own families and easing their burden at work.
“I thought of shoes and how dangerous it is for them to be going in and out of these isolation rooms, and what they’re bringing home to their families,” she told her local news station. “Crocs [are] such an easy shoe to put on and off. [They] can be left in the warm zone right outside the rooms. [They] can be bleached down.”
This is a giveaway you can’t go wrong with, so be sure to enter for your chance to win, and share with all of the healthcare workers in your life so they can get a chance to rock some brand-new Crocs and FIGS too!
