TOMS Shoes operates under a different kind of philosophy: One For One. For every pair of shoes purchased, the company gives a pair to a needy child. Join ACU in helping them make a difference.
Changing Lives, One Pair of Shoes at a Time
Abilene Christian University hosted TOMS founder and "Chief Shoe Giver" Blake Mycoskie, who inspired us with the story of TOMS' beginning and with the message that anyone can make a difference.
This message echoed resoundingly the following day, when some 1,000 students, staff, faculty, and members of the Abilene community gathered for a "Style Your Sole" party, where they purchased and decorated nearly 800 pairs of TOMS, and visited with other nonprofit organizations who are making a difference.
A big thanks to the ACU Students Association, College of Business Administration, Honors College and most importantly the students of ACU for making this event a success and for making a difference in the world!
For every pair of TOMS purchased, TOMS gives a pair of new shoes to a child in need.
