Good Cause Product

Some say the economy is in a tough climate. That being said, how are you spending your money? What are you buying? Is what your buying doing anyone any good? Those of you that know me know that I love stores, I love clothes, I love people, and I love things that are good. There is a brand out that has been around since 2006 called TOMS Shoes, stands for Shoes for Tomorrow, (http://www.tomsshoes.com/). This is a brand of shoes that is known as a 'cause' product. For every pair of TOMS shoes sold, one pair is donated to someone in a less fortunate country. (according to their website Argentina and South Africa). Pretty cool right? Well, I was introduced to this brand about a year ago. I have liked the idea of designers doing good for the good of man. However, I have just thought, "that's a cool idea, I hope I can sell some". Well today my view of TOMS changed, I love the idea even more. Why did it change? You may ask, well I met the Creator/Designer/"Chief Shoe Giver" Blake Mycoskie. What a cool guy. He seems so genuine and inspiring for a cause. He wanted to do something that mattered. He has partnered with retailers in order to branch out the cause. So yes, I am truly on the TOMS band wagon. Do I have a pair yet? No. Will I get a pair, let's hope so (I want the pair below). Remember it is for a good cause.

anyway, our friends michelle & jeremy horton have these! michelles are some sort of tan color, maybe a herringbone pattern. I love them, and they're so comfy. she had told me about the guy, but i'd never heard of him anywhere else until just now! i love that you're spreading his name and brand. i think it's an awesome cause. hopefully God will bless it!
