Today’s blog entry  Let me start again, with a journalistic technique I learned from the illustrous Biege.

Dear Diary,

Today’s blog entry is about my new TOMS shoes.  I was really surprised when friends and family hadn’t heard about TOMS One for One policy: “With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair to a child in need.”  With the proliferation of advertising, I assumed everyone had seen the AT&T commercial starring TOMS founder and chief shoegiver, Blake Mycoskie.  I guess the proliferation of Tivo trumped it.  In any case, TOMS is a company with a strong, benevolent identity.  Founded on simple shoe designs and a charitable mission, it has grown in size, selection, awareness (*or not!), and impact since its inception in 2006.  I was stoked to get in on the movement, especially with the limited edition Glitters shoe I’m wearing today.  In fact, I’m so inspired by TOMS that I decided to donate an additional pair of shoes from my closet to a drop box for local families in need… it’s a two-for!  I suggest any fashionista with clothing and shoes to spare consider doing the same.  Just one way to make your charity go the extra mile.

Yours truly,

  1. So you made your shirt and are wearing glitter shoes? Oh boy oh boy! Way to spruce up a tee and jeans, Jilly. That will turn boring and grumpy on its head!

    And if that won’t cut it, donating shoes to children in need definitely will. Winner winner
