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

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?

Should I be happy or feel biter about this?

Let me explain.

I guess Haitians under thirty never knew the time when RUE MGR GUILLOUX between rue ST HONOrE and RUE DEHOUX, was like headquarter of family owned shoe factories and stores.

Hopefully that will inspire the bourgoisie in Haiti to give back to the least
