NEW YORK, April 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Stuart Weitzman has partnered with Pencils of Promise (PoP) to share in its mission to create schools, programs and global communities around the common goal of education for all. With a focus on creating quality elementary education programs within the rural regions of developing nations, Stuart Weitzman will fund the building of three schools: one each in Ghana, Guatemala and Laos. Working alongside each community to train and empower locals with these self-sustainable schools, the Stuart Weitzman and PoP partnership takes a step closer to the vision that every child has the basic right to education.
To benefit the cause, Stuart Weitzman has created an exclusive yellow suede version of the NEARLYNUDE block-heel sandal – one of the hottest styles from the spring collection - proceeds from which will benefit the building of the three schools. With a suggested retail price of $398, this limited-edition charity style is available only at www.stuartweitzman.com and at Stuart Weitzman flagship boutiques in New York, Beverly Hills, Chicago, Dallas, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Las Vegas, and Costa Mesa.
