The Giving Movement: TOMS Shoes

001One For One

TOMS- if you haven’t heard of this one-for-one shoe concept then you might as well be living under a rock! TOMS was founded by American traveler, Blake Mycoskie, in 2006 when he befriended children in an Argentinian village and found they did not have protection for their feet.

The Giving Movement: Pura Vida

Shame on me for calling this a “trend” but when everyone jumped on the “Charity Train” I was a bit skeptical.

I’m beginning to learn that a huge number of our companies we deal with have silent charities and donating partners and customers probably aren’t even aware of them! We have so many companies doing this that I can’t fit all of them in one blog. Every week we will highlight a new charity that South Coast carries. I want to share with you all these great givers and what we can do to help! Read more

After recently returning from scoring some big waves in Hawaii he is welcomed back to California with sunny skies, light offshore wind and waist- to chest-high-plus reeling righthanders at Uppers. He managed to place 3rd in the Boys Under 14 group just behind 1 – John Mel – Newport Beach
