My TOMS Dan Eldon Printed Classics
TOMS Shoes is a socially responsible company founded in 2006 by entrepreneur, Blake Mycoskie. TOMS is based off the One for One movement, where every pair of shoes purchased, another is donated to a child in need. Shoes, a necessity we often take for granted, are the most basic form of prevention for dangerous debilitating and disfiguring soil-transmitted foot diseases, including Podoconiosis. Furthermore, shoes provide safety against infection, a secure method of transportation, and a feeling of self-worth.
TOMORROW - April 5, 2011 - marks TOMS 'One Day Without Shoes' - a pledge to go one day without shoes to experience the hardships people all over the world face without this basic necessity. The purpose of the initiative is to educate consumers, family, and friends about the importance of shoes, and how YOU can help those in need.
Tomorrow I plan to go without (but will have my TOMS Dan Eldon Printed Classics in tow)! Will you go without?
