Walk a mile

Who doesn’t love a good pair of shoes? Better yet, who doesn’t love a good pair of shoes with a story behind them? For Blake Mycoskie, the story started in 2006 when he took a trip Argentina. There he was faced with the harsh reality that the children in the poverty-stricken villages were walking around with nothing to protect their feet. As Mycoskie explains in Start Something That Matters, “a good story transcends boundaries, breaks barriers, and opens doors.” In this empowering how-to guide, Mycoskie not only shares the story of how he started TOMS—a shoe company that donates one pair of shoes for every pair purchased—he also shares stories of fellow do-gooders who started their companies from nothing because they wanted to make a difference. In true TOMS form, the purchase of this book will mean one book will be provided to a child in need.
