a word about Charity and TOMS

Here is the thing. I believe you be good to Mama (earth) and she'll be good to you. I drive a hybrid. I recycle when it's convenient. I do not however get the whole TOMS craze? These shoes are ugly. I get that they send a pair to poor kids in turn. That is nice, but they are ugly. I say write a check. Make a difference. Get the kid some damn KEDS. The only thing worse than being underprivileged is having to wear shoes that look unfinished. This isn't always a bad idea in theory- see Save The Children Ties for crying out loud. But I can't wrap my head around or put my feet in those shoes.
