Taft represents TOMS Shoes, an organization headquartered in California and a nationally recognized leader in socially responsible entrepreneurial activity. The TOMS mission is a simple, yet powerful, one. For every pair of shoes they sell, TOMS (a for profit entity) gives one pair away to children in need around the world. To date, they have donated more than one million pairs of shoes.
To help further build awareness of the needs around the world, TOMS sponsors its annual "One Day Without Shoes" campaign asking people to go without shoes to raise awareness about children in need. This year, the campaign is Tuesday, April 10. Taft will participate in the program and invites you to join us in showing your support with, or preferably without, your shoes. A light breakfast will be provided for the first 100 guests. The group photo will be taken at 8:30 where we will be raffling off a pair of TOMS shoes and a luxurious pedicure from Mitchell's Salon and Day Spa!
