Put Your Best Foot Forward: Toms at Lane Crawford

Style & BeautyPost Category - Style & BeautyStyle & Beauty

Want to help put shoes on barefooted children in Africa, Central America and Northern India?

It’s easier than you may think. And would you believe me if I told you that it would involve a trip to Pedder Red or Lane Crawford?

TOMS gives a pair of new shoes to a child in need for every pair you purchase as part of their One for One program.  Since beginning their program just four years ago, TOMS has given over 600,000 pairs of shoes to children in need.

The simple and nearly weightless slip-on sneaker is effortlessly cool on both men and women – and there is even a Tiny TOMS line for the kiddos.

I’m sure this is all the persuasion you need, but just in case – here are some sobering facts that should get you moving to make a difference:

*A leading cause of disease in developing countries is soil-transmitted diseases, which can penetrate the skin through bare feet. Wearing shoes can help prevent these diseases, and the long-term physical and cognitive harm they cause.

*Wearing shoes also prevents feet from getting cuts and sores. Not only are these injuries painful, they also are dangerous when wounds become infected.

*Many times children can’t attend school barefoot because shoes are a required part of their uniform. If they don’t have shoes, they don’t go to school. If they don’t receive an education, they don’t have the opportunity to realize their potential.
