While traveling in Argentina in 2006, Blake Mycoskie witnessed the hardships faced by children growing up without shoes. His solution to the problem was simple, yet revolutionary: to create a for-profit business that was sustainable and not reliant on donations. The idea of One for One was born, which has turned into a global movement. TOMS has given over 10 million pairs of new shoes to children in need since it began in 2006. 2+ years ago we a expanded its unique business model to include TOMS Eyewear, helping over 150,000+ people in need to date.
