If any of you know me, you know I'm always wearing TOMS shoes. My first pair has the famous quote by Mahatma Gandhi written all over it, "Be the change you wish to see in this world," and they are sitting next to me as I type this post. TOMS is inspiring and it's the kind of change I wish to be a part of - even if I am just wearing the shoes for now.
For those of you who don't know TOMS shoes, it's simple:
For every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for one.
Since TOMS launched in 2006, over 300,000 pairs of shoes have been given to children under the One for One model.
Yep, it didn't take me long to buy my ticket and post something about it (well, 40 minutes to be exact.)
