TOMS Shoes

TOMS Shoes business plan is simple – for every shoe you purchase, they send a pair of shoes to a child in need. Since 2006, they have given 10,000 pairs to children in Argentina and 50,000 pairs in South Africa. This year alone, they plan on giving 200,000 pairs of shoes to children in need around the world. Here is a clip of an acutal shoe drop in Argentina back in 2006.

Incorporate giving in what you do!

This just gave me goosebumps. Hat tip!

Where you put your time and attention says a lot about who you are

Where you put your time and attention says a lot about who you are. It says a lot about you as a human being. You have some idea in your head of all the stuff that is high priority to you. All the stuff that really matters. If I sat down and asked you what’s really important to you – you would say ‘oh my family and my church group and I’m a deacon.’ But then I go and I look in your email box, newsfeeds and web browser… If I went and got all CSI on that, what would the last two weeks of your electronic life say about how it maps to the stuff that you claim is really important?

Buying In: The Secret Dialogue Between What We Buy and Who We Are


Our last Likemind was sponsored by Randomhouse and we all received a copy of Buying In: The Secret Dialogue Between What We Buy and Who We Are, by Rob Walker, author of the “Consumed” column for the New York Times Magazine. I’ve only read a few pages but it seems promising. Robert over at Core77 wrote a review on it. I yet have to form an opinion!
