QUEBEC CITY, Dec. 19 /CNW Telbec/ - With Christmas at our doorstep, Crocs
Canada has sent a gift of color and comfort to all our Canadian soldiers in
Afghanistan; every one of them has received a pair of Crocs.
Crocs has offered this gift in a spirit of solidarity and encouragement
for our Canadians in uniform. Our soldiers are brave and courageous and they
deserve our support. It is to these dedicated men and women and their families
that we must now turn our thoughts.
Crocs sandals bring a smile to everyone's face. These revolutionary
sandals have won the hearts of grown-ups and little ones around the world.
Their ergonomic design and incomparable comfort are due to the remarkable
qualities of the material used, Croslite(TM).
In spite of the difficult job our soldiers are doing in Afghanistan,
Crocs(TM) wishes to send them a smile and a comforting thought. It is our hope
that in a well-deserved quiet moment, they will pull off their boots, slip on
their Crocs, and crack a smile, knowing that on this side of the world, we
have not forgotten them.
