Could you imagine life without shoes on your feet? Unfortunately MANY needy children experience this every single day. TOMS shoes will be sending a few lucky applicants/winners on a giving trip to put shoes on the feet of children in need. This program will help improve the health, education and well-being of children!
It just so happens I know two local ladies who applied for this amazing opportunity!
First is Joanna P. She is an extraordinary lady who has dedicated the past 27 years of her life to helping children in our community speak! She absolutely adores kids and this trip would be a dream come true! Joanna sees firsthand the self-confidence that her therapy offers children and now would like the opportunity to see how shoes can also change a child’s life! Check out Joanna P.’s write-up and vote here.
Her daughter Laura P. also applied. She will be graduating from college this Spring and following in her mother’s footsteps and teaching children. She is passionate about working with kids and this experience would start her career off on the right foot (and give her some amazing stories to share)! You can vote for Laura P. here.
The passion to help obviously runs deep in this family! Let’s help this mother and daughter duo win and experience this life changing adventure together (yes, you can vote for both)! Please take a moment to vote for Joanna P. and Laura P.
Here’s a little more about the program and a video:
Ticket to Give is an opportunity for TOMS fans to join us on a Giving Trip, to distribute shoes, to place them on the feet of kids and to see firsthand the self-confidence and smiles that new pairs of shoes can create.
“The greatest part of my job is going on our Giving Trips. TOMS started this way, and these have been some of the most moving and memorable experiences in my life.”
-Blake Mycoskie, TOMS Founder and Chief Shoe Giver
Also, for every pair of Toms shoes YOU purchase, they will give a pair to a child in need! You can learn more about their “one for one” campaign here.
