"Be The Change" is a new category that I am glad to introduce. I want to highlight some of the wonderful ways that people on our planet are choosing to help and support each other. Blake Mycoskie is the founder of Toms shoes, a company that is commited to being the change to children around the world. This company has a powerful missions statement: "For each item you purchase, Toms will give a pair of shoes to a child in need. One for one. Toms has already given away over 200,000 pairs of shoes to children in need, and the numbers are still climbing. Toms shoes are argentine style shoes that come in a variety of colors and fabrics. When you purchase a pair of Toms, you are not just providing for your own need but also for the need of another. I love this cause! Changing a life begins with a single step. Toms....shoes for tomorrow.
