In January, we will be the only shoe manufacturer in Haiti, TOMS Founder says


Haiti PM Laurent Lamothe and TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie
Haiti - JOBS - Blake Mycoskie, founder of TOMS Shoes says: "in January, we will be the only shoe manufacturer in Haiti, but we hope that we will attract other shoe footwear manufactures (to) create an industry in Haiti, which can make a big impact." while signing copies of his new book, "Start Something That Matters."

Start Something that matters... That's what Blake Mycoskie did... and I wish each and every Haitian did just that... Start something that matters.

Imagine that... When Toms sells a pair of shoes a pair of shoes is given to an impoverished child, and when Toms sells a pair of eyewear, part of the profit is used to save or restore the eyesight for people in developing countries.

That's freaking amazing... Make money while helping others.

I am very happy to hear that TOMS is coming to Haiti and am realy inspired by the title of his book. I will definitely read it

What do you think about that?
