TOMS Shoes

For every pair of shoes purchased from TOMS Shoes, they will give a pair of shoes to a child in need. The founder of TOMS, Blake Mycoskie, befriended some children during a trip to Argentina and saw that they had no shoes to protect their feet. Therefore, he created TOMS to help put shoes on children around the world.

"The leading cause of disease in developing countries is soil-transmitted parasites which penetrate the skin through open sores. Wearing shoes can prevent this and the risk of amputation."

Over the past few years "TOMS has given over 140,000* pairs of shoes to children in need through the One for One model. Because of your support, TOMS plans to give over 300,000 pairs of shoes to children in need around the world in 2009."
