TOMS Shoes Founder Blake Mycoskie

Blake Mycoskie is the Founder of TOMS Shoes, a social good company, and the man who help generate awareness the One for One movement. As of Septemeber 2010, TOMS Shoes and Blake Mycoskie has given over 1,000,000 pairs of new shoes to children in need through the one for one movement and giving partners around the world.

In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, Blake Mycoskie created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every one pair of shoes purchased with one pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One. Blake Mycoskie returned to Argentina with a group of family, friends and staff later that year with 10,000 pairs of shoes made possible by TOMS Shoes customers.
