Hello! This is my very first post! Which is obviously a start. I mean, everyone has to begin somewhere, and sometime.
So, to begin with, here's a simple post..
TOMS shoes began with this one guy...
One For One Movement - A Pair Of New Shoes Is Given To A Child In Need With Every Pair Purchased - TOMS.com
A few facts:
•A leading cause of disease in developing countries is soil-transmitted diseases, which can penetrate the skin through bare feet. Wearing shoes can help prevent these diseases, and the long-term physical and cognitive harm they cause.
•Wearing shoes also prevents feet from getting cuts and sores. Not only are these injuries painful, they also are 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.
Okay, so I have only 1 pair right now, their red classics, and I love them! So so so much! If I could I'd buy every style and color. Next up, I want some Cordones. Love!
And not only are you getting something you can enjoy, you are giving at the same time. Come on people, it's a no brainer! So think about it. :)
