One for One

31 Aug

Have you found your own magical pair of shoes? The pair which when worn gives you the feeling that you can walk all day? Well, I have. Not only that it’s the most comfortable shoes EVER, it also has a vision of changing the world. That is why I would want to introduce it to you guys if you want to be a part of something bigger in your own little way.

Tomorrow’s Shoes, also known as TOMS, was founded by Blake Mycoskie back in 2006.  When he visited Argentina, he saw that there are a lot of children who were barefoot due to poverty. So what he did to help is to match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One. And as of September 2010, they’ve already given out 1,000,000 pairs of shoes to children in need around the world.

And what surprised me was their new line, TOMS Eyewear, which has the same One for One theme. This time, it’s for every pair that you purchase, TOMS will help give sight to a person in need.

Blake had his conclusion that TOMS could be more than just a shoe company, it could be a One for One company. So now, they would provide medical treatment, prescription glasses or sight-saving surgery for those people in need with every TOMS glasses purchased. Another amazing concept from Mycoskie right?!

So if you are interested to get your own pair, here’s the list of TOMS’ authorized dealers. And PLEASE do not buy fakes since it will defeat TOMS’ purpose.

Oh! And btw, they also have a Style Your Sole party in which you can have your TOMS painted and personalized. *FUN*
