TOMS Shoes


Guest post by my daughter Kiera (another writer in the family!)-a project she feels passionate about


Did you know that thousands of children in South Africa, Ethiopia, Peru, China, Haiti, Uganda, Argentina, and even the United States,grow up barefoot? Many diseases lay in dirt and soil that can go through the skin from kids bare feet. They get cuts, sores, and injuries every day from
walking to school, farming, chores, or even just playing. These wounds can get infected, and cause lots of pain for a child. Just by having a pair of shoes, they can prevent all of these things!

TOMS is a shoe brand that lots of people love for their comfortable, colorful, and even sparkly shoes. But it isn’t a regular company.
Every time you buy a pair of their shoes, they send a pair to a child in need!    They have shoes, but they also have t-shirts, necklaces,
stickers, and flags! They’re items are for all ages; Men, women, youth, and even toddlers! No matter what you choose, you can be sure you are changing the lives of children all around the world.
