TOMS shoes: The Gift of Giving

During this holiday season, give a gift that will change the life of another. TOMS shoes is a meaningful gift to give for anyone on your list. With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need, which is their “One for One” movement.

I had met the founder of TOMS shoes, Blake Mycoskie, last year and have supported him and his wonderful cause ever since. In 2006, during a visit to Argentina he discovered that the children in the village had no shoes to protect their feet. He wanted to help and was inspired to create shoes with conscience and created TOMS shoes, short for “Shoes for Tomorrow”. The shoes were inspired by slip-ons called alpargatas he saw local farmers and polo players wearing in Argentina. Now these comfy shoes come in variety of colors, designs and fabrics, or you can even get them in white and customize them yourself as a fun project!

As of last September, TOMS has given over one million pairs of shoes to children in need. They have men’s, women’s, and children’s sizes as well as Vegan options for the shoes. This gift will not only change lives but spread joy and brighten holidays for others. Do good this holiday season!
