Did You Know?

By: Samantha Martinez

Here at the conference I came across Toms. I bet you have heard of the shoes Toms but did you know that it's not just a company that sells shoes? They also sell sunglasses. With both of these things they use the logo, "One for One." What this means is if you buy one pair of their shoes, they give someone in need a free pair of shoes. Or if you buy a pair of sunglasses they give sight back to someone who needs it.

shoesWith Toms they do many different things, they can make toms in your school colors, they make them for men, women, kids, teens and people who don't have enough money to afford a pair of shoes.

If you are wondering anything about Toms you can go on their web page and browse around.

You may want to buy a pair of Toms but be thinking, "wow these are expensive" but you should remember, "One for One" you are going to help someone in need by purchasing a pair. This would be a great thing to promote at your schools, buying shoes and helping others.
