Tom's Shoes- Hottest Christmas Gift This Holiday Season

Tom's shoes is helping solve the problem of shoelessness around the world.
Here are some stats from the World Health Organization about children who are shoeless.
*400 million children are infected or at risk of being infected with “soil-transmitted helminths” – worms in the soil that can enter the body through the soles of bare feet.
*An additional 200 million people worldwide (adults and children) are infected with schistosomiasis, which comes from another type of worm – shoes can play a big prevention role with “schisto”, too.
*If a child has enough worms in her body, they will stunt her physical growth, make her more susceptible to other infections, and even cause permanent cognitive damage – that’s a lower IQ, just because of worms!
*Children with worms also suffer from lower school attendance.

 
The solution to the previous stats is Tom's shoes. 
They are not only fashionable footwear; they are made with a purpose. For every pair of Tom's shoes you purchase, a pair is given to a child in need. Tom's has now given away over a million pairs of shoes to children in developing countries. Tom's is really making a difference and you can help them buy purchasing their shoes. You can purchase shoes for men, women and children. They have shoes in just about every color and design you can think of. And they have boots as well. This season buy Tom's shoes for you family members, not only will they enjoy the shoes, they will enjoy the fact that the shoes helped another person in need.
