TOMS Shoes.. No more Sweaters for Christmas...

TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One. Using the purchasing power of individuals to benefit the greater good is what they're all about.
I've  heard too many shopping stories already this season to have much sympathy for the endless waste of time and money when we could simply put an effort into helping the less fortunate among us in the world and get a firm grasp on the big picture.
Am thinking that Heifer International, an organization that focuses on teaching the poor to fish rather than giving them a fish just might be what this life is all about...happy, healthy, wealthy and wise is of no consequence unless it is shared.. Could we seek the true spirit of Christmas this year?   ..for a change? or is it more popcorn and politics down at the local bar...

  1. Can I tell you how much I adore Tom's Shoes? People told him that it wouldn't work and they were soooo wrong. A business model based on ethics can survive and thrive.

    Love your blog!
