Recorded earlier - 7/25/16

In this episode of The Willie Robertson Podcast, Willie and Johnny D are joined by Roma Boots founder and CEO Samuel Bistrian. Bistrian tells his story of coming to the U.S. as a refugee with his family after escaping communism in Benesti, Romania.

One of twelve children, his family actually made up 10% of the population of their small village! Adapting to life in the states was quite an adjustment for Bistrian, but his proved to be quite the rags-to-riches story, and he has made it his mission to pay it forward:

Roma Boots merges fashion with philanthropy to give poverty the boot. Our mission is to bring impoverished children throughout the world hope, love, and lasting change through aid and education. For every pair of boots sold, a new pair is donated to a child in need. Additionally, ten percent of all proceeds funds educational initiatives around the world.
