"We Could Sustain the Giving." Blake Mycoskie on Why TOMS Shoes is a For-Profit Business



Lavin speaker and TOMS Shoes founder Blake Mycoskie has been named a USA Network Character Approved Honoree for 2011. Mycoskie’s company, which works on a one-for-one model, recently sold its one-millionth pair of shoes — which means they have also given away one million pairs of shoes to children in need around the world.
