TOMS shoes come with a motive: "For every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a new pair of shoes to a child in need" And that's exactly what they do!
In 2006 an American traveler, Blake Mycoskie, befriended children in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One. Blake returned to Argentina with a group of family, friends and staff later that year with 10,000 pairs of shoes made possible by caring TOMS customers.Visit TOMS site and read all the interesting stuff!
