Fierce female musicians and twin sisters, Tegan and Sara, founded the Tegan and Sara Foundation to fight for health, political and economic equality for young girls and women within the LGBTQ+ community. Speaking to their collaboration with Teva, Tegan and Sara said, "We got our first pair of Teva sandals when we were 16. This rainbow Flatform collab is like full circle LGBTQ+ Pride validation. Teva's generous support for our foundation will allow us to help even more LGBTQ+ youth."

To further celebrate and support the LGBTQ+ community and the Foundation, Teva will donate $15 for each pair of Flatform Universal Pride sandals sold, up to a guaranteed maximum donation of $30K, to the TSF to continue the movement for racial equality, social and gender justice for young girls and women. The donation will fund scholarships for LGBTQ+ youth to attend summer camps that help develop self-confidence and leadership abilities in a safe and nurturing environment.

"We are so proud to stand behind and support the Tegan and Sara Foundation and their mission," says Erika Gabrielli, Senior Marketing Director at Teva. "Teva has long stood as an expression of freedom and we are excited to be a part of celebrating that with the LGBTQ+ community and contribute to their continued fight for equality."

The Teva Flatform Universal Pride sandal shines with a rainbow striped platform and midsole, inspired by the LGBTQ Pride flag's message of empowerment and inclusivity. Featuring elevated style with a 2 ¼ inch platform and straps made from Repreve® recycled PET webbing, this sandal is Pride celebration ready. The sandal retails for $80 and will be available for purchase on Teva.com and Nordstrom.com.
