From TOMS founder/chief shoe giver Blake Mycoskie:
“The greatest part of my job is going on our Giving Trips. TOMS started this way, and these have been some of the most moving and memorable experiences in my life. We have an unbelievably passionate community, many of who tell us they would love to go on a Giving Trip. So we thought, ’ What can we do to show them how thankful we are for them?’”

Ticket to Give is an opportunity for the TOMS community to join us and our Shoe Giving Partners on a Giving Trip. Experience how powerful it can be to hand-place shoes on children’s feet and gain an understanding of how TOMS Shoes are integrated into our Giving Partners’ larger development program\
TOMS is evolving every day, with each new fan, customer, friend and Giving Partner that joins us. And in paving the way for what lies ahead, we think it’s important we remember how we got here.
In the early days we called our firsthand shoe-giving experiences Shoe Drops. Our founder Blake, the small TOMS staff, and some their family and friends, traveled back to Argentina to distribute the very first One for One shoes to children in need. For the next few years, the TOMS family was an essential part of every pair of shoes given to children in need.
