TOMS executive to speak on strategy, impact of new for-profit model

November 18, 2011

One for One™ model stresses social entrepreneurship

On a trip to Argentina in 2006, Blake Mycoskie saw extreme poverty and poor health conditions, as well as children walking without shoes. Wanting to help, he created TOMS – a for-profit shoe company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One™. Today, TOMS has given more than one million pairs of new shoes to children in need around the world. One for One Download Full Image

Candice Kislack, TOMS chief strategy and mission officer, will present the strategy and impact of the movement at the event “One for One: Building Communities One Step at a Time” at 4:30 p.m., Nov. 28, at the Polytechnic campus in the Cooley Ballrooms. 

Presented by ASU’s College of Technology and Innovation and Changemaker Central @ ASU, the event is aimed at inspiring students to develop and cultivate creative ideas and solutions that will socially impact their local and global communities.

The event will open with a presentation by Tyler Eltringham, ASU student and CEO and founder of OneShot – an organization dedicated to providing meningococcal meningitis vaccinations to college students living in dormitories and university housing in a "One for One" model. For every vaccine administered stateside, one is donated to the meningitis belt of Africa.

“One for One: Building Communities One Step at a Time” is free and open to the public. Attendees who RSVP will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a pair of TOMS. Those who wear their TOMS to the event also will be entered to win other prizes. For more information and to RSVP,  visit
