Shoes for a Better Tomorrow – TOMS

Yay! I’m so glad that companies like TOMS Shoes exist. Check out the video below and you’ll see what I mean.

For every pair of shoes that you buy, TOMS gives away another pair to child who needs them. One for one. Genius! And it’s a complete bargain, get some great shoes and do a good thing.

Blake Mycoskie (a former contestant on the reality show ‘Amazing Race’) is the founder and Chief Shoe-giver at TOMS. Blake came up with  his inspired business idea when on holiday in Argentina. He learned that some children there had never owned a pair of shoes. The lack of footwear left these children vulnerable to foot infections, such as Podoconiosis also known as Podo. Podo is a debilitating disease that causes extreme swelling, repeated ulcers, and deformity of the feet and legs. But the good news is that it is 100% preventable with shoes! And that’s where TOMS and you come in.

Doesn't that shoe look great on that foot?

Please go to the TOMS Shoes website to find out more about this great company and how you can get involved. Also check out their blog and Blake Mycoskie’s blog. I’ll show you some of my favourite TOMS shoes in a post later this week.
