Support the Cause...

Today I wanted to discus a cause that I had really just heard of and was very inspired by. Many of you have probably heard of the company TOMS shoes. Unless of course you're like me and not entirely familiar. In 2006, Blake Mycoskie traveled to Argentina and in meeting various children, he discovered how a majority of them were not able to even put shoes on their feet. That's when he came up with the website, and for every pair of shoes someone buys, they donate a pair of shoes to a child in need.
The shoes are not exactly that expensive, and they are for a good cause. Here are some of the styles I find to be the cutest.

It's always to see the fashion world give back. I like the splattery paint ones, nice and casual.

That's a good way of contributing to others in need, besides those are pretty cool shoes.

Those are rather cute! I could probably work the paint-spattered ones into my wardrobe. I'm on a shoe-buying ban, but, after all, this is a good cause...
