TOMS shoes was created in 2006, by Blake Mycoskie. While traveling in Argentina, Mycoskie was moved by children he met that had no shoes. Wanting to help he created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. TOMS has given more than 140,000 pairs of shoes to children around the world.
