TOMS are my dream shoe come true. They help people, look adorable, and are extremely comfortable. With every pair purchased, TOMS gives a pair of shoes to a child in need. I finally purchased my first pair when I was in L.A. a few weeks ago. I have been wearing everywhere.
I have worn them to work, to the mall, & out to dinner. I am already shopping for my second pair. I actually stuck them in my purse the other day just in case my feet started hurting. My TOMS were my salvation after several hours of wedding shopping.
TOMS has a program where they give one for one. You buy one pair and they give another pair of shoes to a child in need. Once you make a TOMS purchase, TOMS sends new a new pair of shoes to its Giving Partners, who place the shoes directly on children’s feet — as part of their broader programs to help kids and communities. TOMS gives shoes to children in Haiti, El Salvador, Peru and other places in South America and Africa, and India. Shoes are the perfect item as shoes help protect children’s feet from cuts, infections and diseases. When children are healthy, they can attend school, fight minor illnesses and grow up to reach their potential.
Shoes are often required for school attendance in many countries. Providing school uniforms, which often includes shoes, to children that cannot afford them can increase school attendance by 62%.* Education is the key to mobility and vital to breaking the poverty cycle.
