The ever-popular TOMS Shoes, and its founder/chief shoe-giver, Blake Mycoskie have delivered their one millionth pair of free shoes to a child in need. This is an incredible feat (no pun intended) for this company who took off out in California only recently. The idea is simple, buy a pair-give a pair. Myscoskie has really taken the idea of giving and philanthropy to a different level. What a terrific achievement and make sure to grab yourself a pair of TOMS!

Nike has recently teamed up with the well-known project, headed by Bono, called (Product) RED. The products that are included in the (Product) RED are all made in support of fighting AIDS. Bono and various footballers from around the world got together recently to put Nikes new RED laces in their boots to show their support. This is not just for the pros tho, Nike has made these laces available for the general public on niketown.com. We are loving the combination of Nike and RED because when two big powerhouses combine to fight one mutual cause it gives everyone the most chance to beat the problem.
Were going to start a picture of the day here at Sporting Smiles Blog, and what a photo to start it off. Found this picture courtesy of realmadrid.com. It is a really cool photo of arguably the best footballer in the world.
