Movement: TOMS Shoes

Written by : Posted on August 6, 2009 : 8 Comments

I find it necessary in life for everyone to give of their time, money, or both. I don’t care of your religion, race, or income. It’s the duty of all human beings to do their part in making life better for the human race. I’ll be the first to admit that it’s very easy to let others slip out of your mind and pursue our own selfish goals. In fact, I haven’t done very much for others over the past year or so and am pretty disappointed in myself. That’s why I’d like to start a weekly segment called Movement. Each week I will spotlight non-profits throughout the world that are making amazing changes in other peoples lives. The point of this is to encourage you to do what you can for each movement. Whether it’s donations or purchases, volunteering or just spreading the word. Do what you can, as will I.

An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity. – Martin Luther King Jr.

TOMS Shoes

TOMS Shoes

I thought that I’d start out this first week with something easy for everyone. TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. It doesn’t get much easier than purchasing something for yourself in order to give to someone else. I went with the Burlap Woven TOMS. Some of my other favorite designs that I’d recommend (for men) are the Rope Sole TOMS, Vegan Stitchout TOMS, and the Gabe Lacktman TOMS. Go find a pair of TOMS shoes that fit your style and help give to those in need!

Here the story of TOMS movement: 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.

Since our beginning, TOMS has given over 140,000* pairs of shoes to children in need through the One for One model. Because of your support, TOMS plans to give over 300,000 pairs of shoes to children in need around the world in 2009.

Our ongoing community events and Shoe Drop Tours allow TOMS supporters and enthusiasts to be part of our One for One movement. Join us.
