I’m hunkering down inside today. The weather, at least, isn’t taunting me with sunny skies and warm air. It’s perfectly awful outside and I’m loving it.
Somehow — prayers would be lovely — I injured my foot, and am unable to walk very well. I’ll skip the part where I teared up last night and moaned like a baby seal, and get to the good stuff. What better way to spend my time, then posting about something I’m passionate about.
There seems to be a strong misconception that supporting a cause means you must drain your wallet or endure monthly drop-offs of unwanted junk at your doorstep.
This simply isn’t so.
Meet our family of TOMS.
Many of you will have heard about TOMS’ “One for One Movement”. But just in case you haven’t, let me share it with you. And because I want you to stay with me, I won’t copy and paste a bunch of verbiage you won’t read; I’ll give it to you straight and simple: You buy a pair of TOMS shoes, and they send an extra pair to someone who needs them. That’s it.
Michael’s pair. Well loved, wouldn’t you say?
Pretty in pink.
Here’s a few shots of children receiving their shoes.
It’s shoe time!

Checking out his new kicks.
So what about you? Need a new pair of shoes? Know of someone who does? I would ask that you would check out TOMS before looking elsewhere. In terms of comfort, I doubt you’ll find better. Looking for something dressy or stylish, check out their knitted flats, glittered canvas, or printed wedges. Want something simple, durable, and goes with just about anything, take a look at their basic canvas in red, black, taupe, blue, pink, white, brown. They offer a full line of men’s, women’s, and children’s shoes. Prices start around $39 and go up from there. Remember, though; this is for two pairs of shoes.
And you know I couldn’t resist showing you at least one picture of their children’s shoe.
Oh, get out! A wrinkly baby-tush? I can hardly stand the cuteness.
Maybe just one more . . .
Okay, last one, I promise!
In the event you are shoefully provided for (They also have a line of eye-wear now!), I would then ask if there is another cause you might be willing to support. There’s tons out there, folks, and it doesn’t have to be painful. You just need to be willing. One act of Good goes a very long way.
It’s up to us to be the Light and spread it around.
