In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in a village in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need.
For every pair of TOMS shoes purchased, TOMS provides a new pair of shoes to a child in need. TOMS has donated over 70 million pairs of shoes to children in need, across 70+ countries, since its launch in 2006!
TOMS will be showing at KNOWSHOW Toronto and KNOWSHOW Vancouver.
