Recently the Entertainment Director of Ladies' Home Journal and a cast member of Bravo's Real Housewives of New York, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, decided they wanted to give back so they teamed up with Crocs via the fashion brand's charitable program "Crocs Cares" in a life- changing trip to Haiti.
As blogger Jennifer Brandt put it, "I'm not saying that my trip to Haiti was brave. I'm just saying that it made me worry. Until I saw the children. As always, children change everything."
That quote perfectly sums up my own experience traveling with Crocs Cares to the jungle of Panama.
