Wedding Shoes for a cause

Being a graduate student at the University Of New Mexico, Anderson School of Management  I get to hear about a lot of interesting companies. This past semester a group in one of my classes did a presentation on the company known as TOM’s. They are a shoe company that donates a pair of new shoes to a child in need with every pair purchased. I was so moved by their mission and business ethics that I decided to purchase a pair for myself. While I was going through the online store, I realized that they sell wedding shoes! How awesome is that? Brides can wear cute alpargatas, feel comfortable and know that they are helping children who are in need. After buying my pair of shoes I went to work happy and excited to tell Shauna (PWG publisher) about these awesome shoes. To my amazement, she informed me that a Joann Baldwin, owner of A Personalized Affair (event planning and decor) had a daughter who used TOM’s shoes in her wedding. She hand painted each pair for the girls in her wedding party to match her theme colors. What a great idea!
