ABC recently recognized TOMS Shoes founder Blake Mycoskie as the person of the week. This past April 5, 2011 was TOMS One Day Without Shoes day and hundreds of thousands of people participated in this event. They even created a Toms Shoes Iphone App just for the event.
From the interview that you can read at ABCnews.com Blake Mycoskie said “When you’re putting that shoe on a child’s foot, it’s a very intimate, personal experience you’re sharing with that child…seeing the joy on these kids’ faces…it really touched me. That child will never care about the number of shoes we’ve given away or the success that TOMs has had…all they care about is they’re getting a brand new pair of shoes in a loving way and that is such an awesome experience,”.

TOMS gives in over 20 countries throughout the world. The shoes are especially designed to stand the terrain that these children live in. TOMS also puts great detail into the colors that match school uniforms.
