"Duck Dynasty" star Sadie Robertson is following in the philanthropic footsteps of her parents, recently traveling to Guatemala to deliver hundreds of rain boots to impoverished children.
As reported by The Gospel Herald, the 18-year-old model and author recently teamed up with Roma Boots to create a line that would combat poverty. Roma Boots, a faith-based company headquartered in Dallas, Texas, is a 'buy one give one' company: for every pair of boots bought, the company will also be giving another pair to a child in need.
"The latest 'boot drop' with Sadie [last month] is a grand step in [Roma Boots'] ongoing effort to be sure kids never go without shoes," the company said in a statement to The Christian Post. "Millions of children throughout the world weather all kinds of conditions barefoot, but Samuel Bistrian, [the creator of Roma Boots,] wants to put an end to the dark side of poverty by bringing on smiles and security with Roma Boots."
The report notes that Bistrian has already delivered boots to more than 25 countries and gives one pair of boots to children in need for every purchase made.
Willie and Korie's daughter also opened up about the experience on her social media pages, where she shared a number of pictures from the trip.
"If you begin to see God in everything and everyone, you will begin to see the world every human for the beauty that they are," she captioned one photo. "Amazing trip. Amazing people. Amazing God. (Guatemala)."
In addition to her work with Roma Boots, Robertson recently became the face of the Wild Blue Denim brand and collaborated with faith-based technology company, BelieveTek. The "Dancing With the Stars" alum is also the author a New York Times best-selling book, Live Original: How the Duck Commander Teen Keeps It Real and Stays True to Her Values, and will appear in the upcoming faith-based film God's Not Dead 2.
Despite her tremendous achievements, Robertson credits her Christian faith for allowing her to stay grounded, and often encourages her young fans to focus on inner beauty instead of outward success.
"We worry so much about what we put in our mouth. We are so on guard about what we put in our mouth so that we will look good on the outside. Why don't we do that with our hearts?" she wrote in a recent Instagram post. "We will diet from gluten, carbs and sugar from our mouth, but we won't guard our hearts from hatred, jealousy, negativity, and gossip."
She added, "Maybe instead of spending all of our time worrying about what's going IN our mouth we should start worrying about what's coming OUT of our mouth. That starts with your heart. That's what's going to make a difference in your world."
