one for one.

i first heard about Toms shoes from Soulmate, on one of our random conversations.   Then, I started seeing them everywhere….  when they finally showed up at my favorite store of all time — NORDSTROM, i knew it was time. 

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Toms, their mission is simple:  

TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One. Using the purchasing power of individuals to benefit the greater good is what we’re all about. –

Africa, Uganda, Haiti, and USA are only some of the countries they donate to.  Here’s why you should buy TOMS  1)  they’re fucking comfortable.  2)  they even come in hobbit sizes [Queenie!].  3) they make a donation with no extra cost to u.  4)  you can choose which country your donation goes to, and  5) i said so.

Today, I bought my first pair of Toms Shoes and chose to have the donated pair go to my home country — the good ol’ US of A.  I am now dancing around the office in them, hoping that the kid who got my donated shoes is dancing too.  One for One.   That shit is amazing.

    Tom’s is awesome. Aside from their one-for-one policy, they make some cuteass shoes. I got the wrap boot. They kinda make me feel like a ninja when I’m winding them around me legs.

    “Africa, Uganda, Haiti, and USA are only some of the countries they donate to”
