These observations lead American traveller Blake Mycoskie to create TOMS Shoes, cialis a clever charitable project based on a basic equation: for every pair of shoes purchased by a TOMS Shoes customer, capsule a pair will be donated to children in need. Founded in 2006, the project has already surpassed the impressive amount of 1,000,000 pairs of shoes donated from Zambia to Guatemala. A range of appealing products is offered, with quirky details – such as simple espadrilles in beige, blue or military green colours but boasting a lining with drawn buffalos. Check out some of the products at toms.com – and remember: “With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One.TM”
