Introduction
My life has gone in amazing and unexpected directions since I was young, and I could have never imagined that at age 32 my job title would be “chief shoe giver.” I started the shoes for Tomorrow project after traveling to South America in 2006. My goal was to learn to sail in Brazil and take polo lessons in Argentina but after befriending so many children who did not have shoes to protect their feet, I was inspired to create a business that would give back.

My polo instructor, friend, and co-founder Alejo, and I spent the next few months in Argentina becoming shoe makers, and I returned to the States with a duffle bag full of shoes. My goal was to sell 10,000 pairs, and for every pair sold, one pair would be placed on a child in need.

It's amazing to see how TOMS has grown. I'm humbled every day by the people who say they have been inspired by One for One!
