TOMS Shoes are the perfect summer slip on. It's a wonderful company on a mission to give shoes to kids in need all over the world. For every pair TOMS sells they donate a pair to a child, it's wonderful. Last year they donated 180. 000 pairs and this year's goal is 300,000 pairs!
TOMS makes shoes for everyone in the family. How perfect would they be for inside shoes at school or instead of slippers at home?
These red ones would be so cute with a pair of boyfriend jeans and a blouse.
I like this style for hubbie...
Most children in developing countries grow up barefoot. Whether at play, doing chores or just getting around, these children are at risk.
Walking is often the primary mode of transportation in developing countries. Children can walk for miles to get food, water, shelter and medical help. Wearing shoes literally enables them to walk distances that aren't possible barefoot.
Wearing shoes prevents feet from getting cuts and sores on unsafe roads and from contaminated soil. Not only are these injuries painful, they also are dangerous when wounds become infected. The leading cause of disease in developing countries is soil-transmitted parasites which penetrate the skin through open sores. Wearing shoes can prevent this and the risk of amputation.
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.
There is one simple solution...SHOES.
Of the planet's six billion people, four billion live in conditions inconceivable to many. Lets take a step towards a better tomorrow. (from the Tom's web page)
Snickerdoodles is fully supportive of the TOMS mission so we added them to our Sponsors sidebar on the left. Any purchases made via Snicks will also have the commissions donated to World Vision. We donate all our sponsor commissions so every purchase you make from our page also does a bit of good for someone in need. Shopping is so much more fun when it does double duty.
Happy Day friends!
