TOMS Hong Kong - One for One

Do you know that to give back to the world that we serve in, you don’t have to be rich? There are millions of ordinary individuals – people who pass on the street every day who also gives back, for the sole reason of making the world a better place, with whatever they have.

So, if you want to give back but have no idea where to start, it can be as simple as buying a pair of shoes. TOMS, an American shoe company is that one unsurpassed one out of the lot that started a business without the desire to make a profit. But it was for the sole reason of seeing each kid in this world with a pair of shoes covering their feet.

TOMS Shoes HK - How It All Started

Starting off his company in Los Angeles, TOMS founder, Blake Mycoskie had a desire to ‘make life more comfortable’ –TOMS motto. For every pair of TOMS shoes purchased, Mycoskie gives a free pair of shoes to a child in need. He calls this his One for One challenge.

He wanted to turn his idea into a business but didn’t want a non-profit organization. If he were to start a non-profit, he would have had to use all the money he had and raise lots more just to actually start it out. Instead, he turned it into a for-profit organization with his One for One idea.

When he was travelling in Argentina in 2006, Mycoskie witnessed the hardships faced by children growing up without shoes. Wanting to help, he created TOMS Shoes, a company that matches every pair of shoes purchased with a new pair of shoes for a child in need. One for One.

When he went back to Argentina the very next year, he brought with him 10,000 pairs of shoes, all purchased by TOMS customers for the exact same reason he started TOMS. He was greatly inspired to move his business out from his apartment and it’s a large organization after listening to a woman on how the shoes he brought helped her family so much. Her kids found it difficult to head out to school as they needed shoes and they one had one that was shared among them. But after TOMS, all of them were able to get their necessary education in school on a daily basis.

This story, this great inspiration made him sell off his other business and concentrate solely on TOMS and how it would be able to make the world a better place. Today, based in over 20 different countries all over the world, TOMS has been able to change over 1,000,000 lives of kids all over by covering their small, little feet with quality shoes.
