What a great initiative!

TOMS is an good example of a company to be followed by many others: founded in 2006 after a trip to Argentina, the founder noticed that many children had no shoes to wear. With the help of family and friends he then created TOMS. A shoe manufacturer but with a plus: every pair one purchases, another is donated to needy children around the world!! More than one million pairs of shoes have been donated already! With this success, they extended to other segments and now they are doing the same with glasses. Visit the website. Over there you will find more information on this and other projects including helping in the distribution of shoes to children abroad. And if you have the opportunity, buy a pair! They are sold online and in stores. Have you imagined their happy faces when getting a pair of shoe/glasses?
