From High heels to shoes to boots to ballet flats Toms shoes have everything and for a great cause. Ive seen many people wearing these and i think theyre a great cause and i had to pick them up! I ordered them yesterday and they are on their way! I researched a little bit about them ahead of time and learned a lot about them. In 2006, Blake Mycoskie befriended children in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. He instantly wanted to help so 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 customers. Many children in developing countries grow up barefoot. Even at play, doing chores or going to school, these children are at risk. There are many causes of disease in countries that are soil-transmitted diseases, which can go deep into the skin through bare feet. Wearing shoes can help prevent these diseases.
Wearing shoes also prevents feet from minor open wounds and prevent from getting infected. These injuries are very painful and dangerous when wounds become infected. Many times children can`t attend school barefoot because shoes are a required part of their uniform. If they don`t have shoes, they don`t go to school. If they don`t receive an education, they don`t have the opportunity to realize their potential. I think this is such an awesome charity and Im glad I bought a pair!
