Post Malone donates 10 000 pairs of his sold-out Crocs to frontline hospital staff
Post Malone has helped to donate 10 000 pairs of his sold-out Duet Max Clog II Crocs to frontline workers at 70 US hospitals.
The 'Better Now' hitmaker teamed up with the Musicians on Call initiative - a non-profit organisation which "brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities" across the country - to provide the hospital staff with the popular shoe in appreciation of the sacrifices they are making every day to care for their patients amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Musicians on Call President and CEO, Pete Griffin, said in a statement: "The stress of the pandemic on staff in all areas of the hospital has been unrelenting and we have been doing what we can to continue bringing them the joy of live music. We are so grateful to Post Malone and Crocs for joining us in providing even more relief when they need it the most through this generous donation.
"Thanks to them, caregivers at 70 hospitals nationwide will have the added support of their Crocs to help them through their day."
The generous music star recently gave every student at his old school a pair of the custom Crocs.
The 'Circles' hitmaker's fifth collaboration with the footwear brand swiftly sold out last month, but pupils at Texas' Grapevine High School were treated to a pair each personally gifted to them by the Grammy-nominated star himself.
The school's principal, Alex Fingers, took to Twitter to thank the Grapevine alumni for the generous gift and to congratulate him on his success.
He captioned pictures of some of the kids with their new Crocs: "Thank you @PostMalone for always giving back to your community! Your fellow @Grapevine_HS Mustangs are so proud of your success!"
The Post Malone x Crocs Duet Max Clog II collection comes in pink and black.
The 25-year-old star had also done a giveaway of 5 000 pairs of the shoes to say thank you to his fans.
He said at the time: "Giving away 5 000 shoes is how I’m saying ‘thank you,’ to my fans.
“Each time Crocs and I partner, we make something better than before and I’m excited about what we came up with this time around. Drop 5 is going to be one my fans remember.”
The shoes costs $59.99 (about R900) and the 'Wow' star - who first worked with the brand in 2018 - also designed some Jibbitz charms for the clogs which cost $11.99.
