Giving back is something that I’ve always believed in. I think it is so important to be able to give back nowadays. Not only is great karma (duh!) but it makes me feel SO GOOD knowing that I can make a difference in the world. I know it’s not a huge difference but every little bit counts. If everyone did a few good deeds, think about how many people could be affected in such a positive way? To spread positivity, you must start with yourself!
For Toms, it all started with their shoes. For every pair of shoes that you purchase, they give a pair of Toms to a child in need. That means, for every pair of shoes that you purchase, you are helping someone! Think of it as buying two shoes per purchase, how awesome is that? I’ve contemplated working on other shoes but I keep going back to Toms again and again. It just makes me feel so good knowing that for every pair I paint and ship off to an awesome customer, a child gets a pair of shoes. For Toms, it all started with their shoes and now they have expanded to so much more. They help people in so many other ways. Now, they not only give children a pair of shoes but they have grown to work towards giving freshwater, provide people with full eye exams and treatment, providing a safe birth for pregnant women, and even prevent bullying.
