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!
