“With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One. Using the purchasing power of individuals to benefit the greater good is what we’re all about.” This is what TOMS Shoes is founded upon. Many children in developing or third world countries venture out barefoot, putting them at risk for infection and injury. “Walking is often the primary mode of transportation in developing countries. Children can walk for miles to get food, water, shelter and medical help. Wearing shoes literally enables them to walk distances that aren’t possible barefoot.”
Not having shoes also prevents children from getting the proper education they deserve, as shoes are a required part of their uniform. By contributing to this foundation, not only are you helping to ensure a child’s health, but also his/her education and a brighter future as well.
