What I Love Wednesday: Cupcakes and TOMS

Does loving cupcakes, especially Halloween themed ones, really need to be justified?

I went to a talk on campus on Tuesday night given by Blake Mycoskie, the founder of TOMS shoes. It definitely made me think about how I would like to run a business someday. The passion he had for his business was inspiring, and I hope that someday I can have that much love for a cause and business. It was awesome to hear how TOMS became successful almost overnight, and now they've surpassed their goal of 250 by far.

TOMS are shoes that you buy and then the company gives a pair to a child in need. It's not just another charity, TOMS makes sure that the people that get their shoes also get new pairs as they grow out or wear out the shoes. Buy a pair. Give a TOMS gift card for Christmas. Give a TOMS for tots pair as a baby gift. Give a gift card to a teacher for teacher appreciation day. Give a gift card to that person who has everything.

buy. TOMS!



  1. WOW, I think I've heard of that company, I'm just not sure where they are sold and stuff. I guess you can get them on line. Sounds great!

  2. Yum! I've looked at the shoes. I'd like to have a pair. Especially a fleece lined pair for my Dad. But they look really cool, too.

  3. Hey...I got my Mom to order me some Toms shoes.

    I got the classic ones. 'make art not war'

  4. So you have a pair?

    I'd love to have the gray ones..especially for this fall..I'll see how well I like these, first.

    Hope you had a fun Halloween. It was really just being silly with my friends which is always fun on Halloween.

  5. Yeah..he is so cute. The shoes are cute too. Do you have a pair?

  6. mmmm cupcakes! now i'm hungry!

    toms is definitely a great company, they do such great things to help the world out. that's really special.

    i hope you're having a beautiful day!
    stay healthy!
