I love Toms for more than the shoes. It’s the company, the owner, the purpose, the message – all of the above.
And then I learn that Toms gave out it’s millionth pair of shoes last week.
1 MILLION pairs of shoes.
That is 1,000,000 people who’s lives have been changed by someone who they will never know purchasing something that they take for granted.
The Power of Cause Marketing
This leaves me pondering on how I can change the world thru an entrepreneurial act. The movement of Cause Marketing is something that I wish all companies would evaluate and figure out how to do, use and help change the world with corporate power (just don’t go creating knock off shoes that looks just like Toms).
Until I figure that little ditty out, I’ll keep buying Toms and keep preaching one for one.
Random Fact About Toms Shoes – The Tom Behind Toms
Everyone thinks there’s a Tom behind Toms Shoes, NOPE. The name came from the idea to create “shoes for tomorrow.” Tomorrow’s Shoes wouldn’t fit on the tag so they shortened it to TOMS.
