Imagine if you will, a large group of teenagers giving up hanging with their friends or shopping on a Saturday. Or giving up the latest and greatest fashions, saving money to give away or spending their birthday money not on themselves… and instead, selflessly giving their money, their time and energy to a project to help others.
Seems an almost ridiculous concept, doesn’t it? But it’s not. There are teenagers out there who will do these very things I mentioned. Five of them live in my home. Another thirteen are in a community group we are part of that spend lots of time volunteering and giving back to the community. These teenagers exist.
There are people everywhere willing to donate their time, the money or their resources whenever they can.
These people are in every town, every city, every state and every country.
But even with all those people working to help those in need, there is still a huge problem out there.
We need help from companies and larger corporations to do their part.
And there is one company that is.
TOMS is Giving in the U.S.
One for One.®
TOMS shoes are giving back to America’s children through their One for One mission. It’s an incredible gesture. One that doesn’t end right when it starts. It continues to give and give.
When you buy a pair of TOMS Shoes, you’re also helping improve the health, education and well-being of a child.
How many things do you buy on a daily basis that offer that same statement?
Please take a moment to watch this beautiful video where you will meet Joey, a 6th grader who has received a pair of shoes from this program. You will also meet several others that play a part in this mission and how they help and what it means.
TOMS gives away 3 types of shoes to those in need.
- Canvas Unisex Slip-Ons – a great all-purpose style (similar to the ones customers buy every day); kids can choose from a variety of colors.
- Sports Shoes – constructed for physical activity; supplements TOMS Giving Partners’ programs targeting childhood obesity.
- Winter Boots – Fleece-lined, waterproof, adjustable fit; built to withstand cold climates.
Join me today and help spread the word about TOMS One for One.®
