Here at Alex and Alexa, we love a company that gives back, and TOMS Shoes is just that.
A company that was built around the idea that it wants to help, give back and lift people in need.
The idea for the brand came in 2006, as TOMS Founder Blake Mycoskie travelled to Argentina and witnessed the hardships faced by children growing without shoes. Wanting to help, he created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a new pair for a child in need. One for One.
Since then, their mission to help has expanded to helping provide sight, safe water, safe birth, kindness and time to people in need in over 70 countries around the world.
If this inspires you, you too can help make a difference.
