'One for One'

I AM A BIG FAN OF TOMS. Blake Mycoskie started off a movement that is extremely clever and worth-while. He came up with the idea of 'one for one', which means that for every shoe sold they would give a pair of shoes to a child that needs shoes. Why shoes you may ask? So many children across the world are at risk from injury, infection and soil transmitted diseases because their feet aren't protected. Some children can't go to school unless they wear shoes and if they can't go to school then this doesn't give them or their community a lot of hope for the future. Also, many children in less-developed countries have to walk for miles everyday.. imagine doing that without any shoes on! There has been over 1,000,000 smiles across the globe as TOMS gave shoes to those that needed them because people that could afford to buy shoes purchased them from TOMS. This is my third pair of TOMS shoes and I don't regret a single penny. There are lots of different designs to choose from and they are rather comfy to wear. So next time you are thinking about buying a new pair of shoes, why not buy a pair of may just save a child's life :)

  1. This is a new one on me. I'd never heard of TOMS. What a brilliant idea :)

  2. Hmmmmm interesting. Thank you for sharing. Blessings.

  3. Oh wow what a wonderful ministry to be involved on the feet....the good Lord also sees that our feet need covering....the Word is a lamp unto my feet....which means the revealed word of God is but the shoes that light up our path that we may see how to walk in righteousness....BTW ... love the shot of the little feet upon the dad's shoes...perfect ! I think I will go dance with my Heavenly Father...I shall put my bare feet upon his and let him lead the way
