theschnauzers:
There doesn't really seem to be a great place to post this, but since TOMS is Blake's company, I'll put this here and in the AI thread.
Apparently TOMS had a "Day Without Shoes" a couple of weeks ago (April 10th), and both Colton Dixon and Phillip Phillips joined in

Blake's gotten a bad rap lately but I think the guy is doing great things with the TOMS One for One model - it really opens some doors for businesses to give back which I LOVE. This article I read talks about how Blake Mycoskie incorporated One for One into his book sales too, giving a book to a child for every book sold - thought that was pretty cool. He's supposedly starting a Start Something That Matters Fund where 50% of his book sales goes into the fund and people can present their idea/business plan and get a chance to receive start up funding.

Kacper:
It reminds me...this is a link for an interview Blake had on the "Ellen Degeneres Show" last year in October.

Saw Blake's book on the 'best sellers' section earlier today.
Didn't know he wrote a book. Congrats Blake! :conf:
