Entrepreneur Blake Mycoskie, who founded TOMS Shoes, spoke at the University of Kentucky on Tuesday. TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: With every pair you purchase, TOMS gives 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 are all about.
The folks over at TOMS Shoes are asking people to go the day, part of the day or even just a few minutes, barefoot, to experience a life without shoes first-hand, and to help spread awareness of the impact a simple pair of shoes can bring to a child's life.
