Gift Giving That Gives Back: Toms Shoes

Shoes are a great gift, and an easy one too as long as you can figure out the size.

In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoski befriended children in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created Toms, 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 TOMS customers.

Many of us have seen TOMS shoes, the flat, wrapped style with the small pale blue and white flag, but did you know that TOMS also has sunglasses, Hats, Hoodies, T’s, and scarves.  PLUS ALL OF THESE!! P.S. TOMS has vegan shoes too.
