Over 1,000,000 shoes have been given to a child in need since TOMS started in 2006 through the ONE for ONE program. During a trip to Argentina, owner Blake Mycoskie had a revelation. He would come back to the states, sell his driving education business and start a shoe company that would work on the principal, sell one-give one. Shoes are the most basic fundamental necessity in order to prevent a disease called podoconiosis, a debilitating and disfiguring disease, also known as "Mossy Foot". And to expand his philanthropic empire, Blake has now introduced sunglasses.Pledging to give sight to one person in need, for every pair sold. Watch the video here. What an inspiration.
TOMS motto: "Make life more comfortable"...I'm purchasing mine today!
