Spouses who have an artistic side or just a desire to help others can take part in the TOMS Shoe Decorating activity. As spouses arrive to the event they are directed to choose a pair of solid colored TOMS shoes and take a seat at a table. Here they will find a variety of supplies to decorate the shoes such as paints, fabric markers, and glitter.
A representative from a local non-profit will speak to the group about their organization and how it helps the community. They'll talk about the need for shoes for the people they serve. Throughout the event, guests may also view videos about the TOMS One for One program. This program provides shoes, health, education, and confidence to children in more than 60 countries. For every one pair of TOMS shoes purchased, one pair is donated through their One for One program. Guests can feel great about donating a bit of their time to provide the basic necessity of shoes to children here in the local community and to those across the world.
