Giving Back with Tom's
I've always been a big supporter of non profits and philanthropy work which is why, today, I've decided to highlight a company that I have the utmost love and respect for and who have excelled in the giving back department. That company is Tom's. CEO Blake Mycoskie set out with a simple vision of giving back to people in need by creating a "One for One" business model where every pair of shoe's purchased, Tom's will match by giving a pair to a child in need. And in just a short time, that quickly evolved into "coffee for water", "sunglasses for eyesite" and "bags for safe childbirth." It's amazing how a concept so simple has been so successful in changing 50 million lives in 5 continents in just 10 years! This just goes to show that miraculous things can happen with just a little inspiration and a good heart.
