With every book purchased, TOMS will provide a new children’s book to a child in need. One for One(TM). Read our complete review on Start Something that Matters! TOMS is busy yet again and has another way for you to support the One for One Movement! TOMS Shoes Chief Giver Blake Mycoskie’s first book, “Start Something That Matters,” has been released September 6th, after more than two years in the making. And if you follow TOMS you know that everything they sell is One for One and it is no different with this book. With every book you purchase, a new book will be provided to a child in need. Blake Mycoskie’s goal is to influence other people to go out into the world and have a positive impact, to inspire others to start something that matters, whether it’s a for-profit business or a non-profit organization. Blake feels a deep sense of responsibility to share everything that he has learned from TOMS, so that others can learn from both our mistakes and the counterintuitive principles that have guided our success. In the book Blake also shares the stories of other social entrepreneurs, from all walks of life, who are taking that wonderful and courageous step forward, who are moving from thinking about doing something to actually doing it. Among those mentioned in the book include Tony Hseih (founder ofZappos), Scott Harrison (founder of charity: water), Lauren Bush (founder of FEED Projects), Eric Ryan (co-founder of method) and Tim Ferriss (author of The 4-Hour Workweek).
