TOMS Shoes give back in so many ways. TOMS One for One Movement started with TOMS Shoes, then went on to TOMS Eyewear and now TOMS Books is introduced! TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie has changed the way we buy. With his buy-one-give-one model of shoe retailing, the Toms founder has turned it into TOMS Eyewear and a Book called Start Something that Matters.

Blake Mycoskie who is the Founder of Toms Shoes made an exciting announcement at the SXSW Interactive Conference in Austin, TX. What’s the next chapter for One for One? He spoke about his first shoe drop in South Africa and how he experienced extreme poverty and many needs that were not being met. He also recalls that at the time they were giving away 50,000 pairs of shoes in that particular drop and her recognized that the TOMS One for One model was working and if it was so powerful for shoes could it be used to meet other needs? The next chapter of One for One and he unveils a large mystery box and he goes on the say that the next One of One product is inside this mystery box. This TOMS mystery box will not be opened in June 2011. Blake goes on to say that what is inside the box is not near as important as what it represents – it represents that from this day forward TOMS is no longer a shoe company they are the One for One company. On June 7, 2011 this box will be opened at hundred of locations and will be the first step that One for One will take to meet the rest of the needs of the poor and impoverished people around the world.
