Blake Mycoskie is an amazing guy who traveled to Argentina in 2006. He saw that the children and people living there were sadly walking around barefoot. He had a genius idea to create the organization TOMS with one goal in mind. It clearly states on the website, "With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One." Isn't that amazing?
Here's me in my adorable TOMS!
This is my good friend Jeannine's cute feet and her TOMS!
Here's my sweet friend Christina's TOMS!
My wonderful friend Halie and her TOMS flag and shoes!
Just in the pictures that I have provided we have helped six...SIX children in need. WOOHOO! I also know many other people that have them and I just found out that my friend Kaley's sister is wearing them on her wedding day! This makes me so so happy! What a great organization!!
AND NOW! For the NEW one for one! TA-DA!
See that? (No pun intended). One pair of TOMS glasses equals sight for one person. How is this possible? Through medical treatment, prescription glasses, OR sight-saving surgery. Wow Blake. You sure have a big heart.
So my suggestion for you is to go to www.toms.com and browse through the glasses and take a gander at the shoes. They are super cute and the shoe selection is in abundance, fit for every personality type and age. Blake is giving you an opportunity to help someone in need! What are you waiting for?!
