One for One?

If you’re not aware yet then hopefully this post will open your eyes as to how awesome TOMS are. “TOMS?” I hear you say, “what is that?”

I queried a friend not long ago about his stylish footwear, and he said they were for charity. On further research I found out that TOMS shoes are an organisation who work on the One for One premise. Every time you buy a pair of TOMS shoes, they donate a pair to a child in need in over 50 countries.

Blake Mycoskie is the Founder and Chief Shoe Giver of TOMS, and the person behind the idea of One for One, which has turned into a global movement. TOMS has given over two million pairs of new shoes to children in need since it began in 2006. And is growing each day depending on your support. I personally stumbled across this project because of the great design and awesome aspects of the shoes, I fell in love with it because of what it stands for.

TOMS mission

People spend so much money on  a daily basis for fashion, TOMS are making that money mean, just that little bit more. Go here, buy shoes and help make a difference. And on a personal note, I rock the red canvas classics amongst others. 🙂
