I'm sure many of you have heard about my next retailer in this mini series called
Gifts that Give Back
... because if you're going to give a gift, you might as well give one that gives back!
While I don't personally have a pair of TOMS shoes, I've seen many people wearing them around this past week.
I've been told they are super comfortable.
And every time you buy a pair of shoes, TOMS gives a new pair of shoes to a child in need.
How cool is that?!
Here's how TOMS Shoes started:
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 Shoes.
How about a little video for you visual learners:
If you buy a pair to TOMS Shoes for someone this Christmas, you can be confident that a child in need somewhere in the world will also be receiving a pair of brand new shoes.
Over 1 million pairs of shoes have been given away already!
Buy a sparkly pair for your little girl.
Or your teenager brother.
Visit their store here.
Or check out their blog.
If you have a pair, leave a comment with your personal review of the fit/comfort/style!
I'd love to hear about them from those who have experienced TOMS Shoes!
