TOMS: One for One

"In a country with one of the highest unemployment rates in the world*, we’re creating sustainable jobs with creative solutions.

TOMS has committed to create jobs through shoe production in Haiti and to help establish and support a responsible shoe industry in the country. As a locally staffed and operated facility, we can economically empower individuals while giving big businesses a footprint to work in Haiti in the future.”

I remember seeing this during my trip to Haiti. I was at an orphanage who most kids parents/guardians pass away from the big earthquake.  Let alone, these kids dealt with mass poverty and lack of government presence to assist in this type of circumstance. Man, I’m totally mind-blown. I’ve been looking over their project and it’s obvious they have their purpose and values down. 

I want a Toms shoe from the Haiti Artist Collective now! :D
