In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in a village in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. 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. One for One. Since then TOMS has evolved from a shoe company to the One for One Company, and continues to develop new additions to their TOMS footwear range.
