  53. 53. TOMS<br />
  54. 54. The Toms Story<br />In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. <br /> Wanting to help, he created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. <br />Blake returned to Argentina with a group of family, friends and staff later that year with 10,000 pairs of shoes made possible by TOMS customers. <br />
  55. 55. Why Shoes?<br /><ul><li>Children can't attend school barefoot because shoes are a required part of their uniform. If they don't have shoes, they don't go to school. If they don't receive an education, they don't have the opportunity to realize their potential. </li></ul>A leading cause of disease in developing countries is soil-transmitted diseases, which can penetrate the skin through bare feet. Wearing shoes can help prevent these diseases, and the long-term physical and cognitive harm they cause. <br />
  56. 56. Podoconiosis<br />Podoconiosis is a fungus that gets into the pores on the bottom of the feet and eventually destroys the lymphatic system.<br />
  57. 57. The Shoes<br />Inspired by Alpargata shoes, which have been worn by Argentina farmers for 100 years.<br />They are canvas or cotton fabric shoes are now manufactured in many styles including a Wrap Boot, Stitchouts, Cordones, and Botas. The sole is constructed of rubber. TOMS offers several vegan styles as well. <br />
  58. 58. Giving is Catching On<br />Ralph Lauren sold co-branded Polo Rugby TOMS, giving a matched pair with every pair sold. <br />Element Skateboards has issued limited edition TOMS + Element shoes as well as a One for One skateboard.<br />
  59. 59. TOMS Today<br />
  60. 60. TOMS Today<br />As of September 2010, TOMS has given over one million pairs of new shoes to children in need through giving partners around the world.<br />Campus Club<br />One for One<br />
