Vilda News: Help Refugees and Get a Discount on Shoes



All over Europe, the refugee crisis is making headlines: thousands of  people struggling at the shores of the Mediterranean or in the camps at Calais in the hopes of a better future. Heartbreaking stories of courage, despair and hope are filling up newspapers, TV news stories and the internet.

Compassionate and caring people all over Europe have been collecting items for people in need – clothes, personal hygiene articles, food and shoes.

Want to help? There is a way…and there’s something in it for you: PETA has teamed up with some of the best vegan shoe brands in Europe to create a campaign that allows you to donate your shoes to the “Jungle Camp” in Calais, and receive 20% off vegan footwear.

Brands that have signed up for the initiative:


Beyond Skin



Will’s Vegan Shoes



NAK Fashion




Bourgeois Boheme



Good Guys Don’t Wear Leather  


Here at Vilda we believe, just like PETA, that every life deserves to be lived with dignity, whether human or animal – that’s why we applaud this initiative.
