From the TOMS website:
"In 2006, 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 TOMS customers."
Even though I've only bought one pair so far, I'm happy that I have contributed a very small part to this.
When you buy a pair of TOMS shoes, a child in need will get a pair too. Or if you buy sunglasses from their range of eyewear, a child will get the eye care he/she needs. What's not to love about that??
Not to mention, their designs are awesome, like these, and you would wear these if you were getting married!
