"Walk a Mile in Someone's Shoes - And Donate a Pair to Someone in Need with TOMS Shoes!"

Trends for Less

Over recent years, I have become really big on giving back to those in need. Just today while in Midtown Manhattan, I held up pedestrian traffic outside Grand Central (surprised I wasn't trampled!) just to dig some change out of my purse to put in the Salvation Army bucket. It's holiday time, and there are people all over the world who need our help more than ever. Thankfully, there are plenty of charitable people starting programs to help those less fortunate in our country and across the globe, my favorite being TOMS Shoes.

TOMS Shoes donates a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair purchased (you can now feel less guilty about your shoe spending habits). It is called the "One for One Movement," and it delivers a necessity we take for granted to needy children in developing countries who would never have footwear otherwise. Can you imagine walking along dirt and gravel roads day after day without any footwear to protect your feet? Me neither. It's time to give back!

TOMS shoes come in a fabulous array of styles, to fit every fashionista's taste. Pumps, flats or boots, whichever you prefer! Grab a pair for any child or fashionable man on your gift list, because TOMS Shoes come in women, men as well as children's styles. Check out the website ( for the entire assortment of styles. I guarantee you are bound to fall in love with these trendy shoes, as well as feel great about wearing them! You won't only make someone on your gift list happy, but a child halfway across the world will be thanking you too. Lesson learned: don't hesitate to spend some extra cash on shoes this Christmas season. In fact, I encourage you to get in the spirit of giving when it really counts.
