"In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS, 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 customers." [from toms.com site]
I've never been a super huge fan of Toms from a fashion standpoint, however their mission is both incredibly inspiring and uplifting. This year, they added a super cute line of wedges to their showroom... and at $69 a pop, the price is perfect too! And if you think about it from a servant's standpoint, you're basically getting two pairs for the price of one, right??
I realize the odds of a little South American girl running around in a pair of red wedges that match mine isn't quite the game they're playing here, but I still like to think that's the way they work it.
