So yesterday I wrote about some of the great Spring styles that one of my favorite companies, Tom’s, has come out with recently. However, I had no idea they were involved with a really exciting and wonderful social awareness campaign.
It’s called Ticket to Give. Here’s what’s happening: Tom’s wants to take 50 people with them on their next shoe giving campaign. These 50 people will get to experience what it’s like to be part of the Tom’s team, and give away shoes to children in need.
Think about what an experience like that would do for people. They would get to see what conditions are really like in these countries…many of which are just like India and Nepal, the two countries we at Earth Divas work with most. They would get to see a child’s face light up with joy as they get their first pair of shoes, which now means they can attend school.
These people will learn gratitude, humility, and have an opportunity to reflect on just how fortunate we all are in the country. I love that Tom’s is doing this!
How to Enter
Entering Ticket to Give is really easy. You take a photo that means something to you; a great example is the first image in this post, created by Amber. You title your entry (such as Ticket to Hope, Ticket to Humility, Ticket to Grow, etc.), and then write one paragraph explaining why you want to go with Toms on a giving trip. The 50 people with the most votes wins.
Here’s another entry photo I really like, from Tessa.
Anyway, I’m encouraging all of you to go enter if this is something that speaks to your heart. At the least, browse through some of the current entries and vote for your favorites. And Kudos to Toms, again, for providing such an amazing opportunity for people!
