So I always wanted Toms because they look comfortable, cool and everyone has one. But then I just came across the story behind the brand as written by Jessica French which is a beautiful story about the "one for one" donation they make to children all over the world with each Toms purchased.
HERE's Jessica's version
"Toms came around when creator Blake Mycoskie was travelling in Argentina
with his friends, whilst there he had discovered that children he had
become friends with in the local villages had no shoes to protect their
feet. Thats when he had the idea of creating Toms Shoes to gift to the
children. That was in 2006 and since then, and until this day when every
pair of shoes are sold, one pair gets donated to children all around
aren't they beauties?- ¿no son bellezas?
I think it is an amazing story and makes me like the brand more. Who knows, I might purchase one when I get a job soon so if anyone around here is looking for a recent graduate to work for them around here, hint hint, I'm the perfect person lol. Just thought I'd throw it out there...Toodles!
Hasta luego mis amores!- see you later my loves
