TOMS History

This September, TOMS will be giving the one millionth pair of shoes to a child in need. It’s been a wild 4 years and we owe a huge thank you to our incredible fans and customers! Follow the TOMS History Trip here on Gowalla to learn about a few of the spots that have been integral in our growth over the past four years and gain insight to our culture (taco shops and surf spots included). Since we have spots all over the country, you only need to check in to THREE places to score your TOMS History Trip pin. We’re stoked to reach this milestone and look forward to putting many, many more shoes on children’s feet in the years to come. Join the One for One™ movement:

TOMS Shoes Promotion

TOMS Shoes

TOMS and AT&T are using Gowalla to promote their mission of getting shoes to the world’s less fortunate. Between Aug. 16th and 23rd Check-Ins “at various apparel stores and electronics shops” will enter you in a chance to win 1,000 pairs of TOMS shoes, 250 smartphones or 5 netbooks (the later thanks to AT&T). The grand prize winner “will travel with a guest to Buenos Aires in September to celebrate the four-year-old program’s 1 millionth donated pair of shoes.”

Hopefully we’ll see some cool custom Items.

I saw Blake Mycoskie, the founder of TOMS Shoes, speak recently and I have to say this is a really cool company with an incredible mission. (If you haven’t heard of them they donate a pair of shoes to a needy child for every pair that is sold. In lots of countries children can’t go to school unless they have shoes and some families will rotate a pair between children so that they can go to school every three days or so.) Go TOMS and Gowalla!
