TOMS Shoes

Last weekend I attended the Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit (at a Downlink Site). They interviewed a young entrepreneur - Blake Mycoskie. In 2006, while traveling, Blake 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. Check out the website for more info on his One for One Movement and check out all the cool shoe designs TOMS have! Here are a few of my favourites...

Love the shoes!! Love the One for One Business model! And...

...I LOVE Blake!!
