Ep. 190 - Founder of TOMs, Blake Mycoskie on The One-for-One Giving Model + Ending Gun Violence Together

Blake Mycoskie, the Founder and Chief Shoe Giver of TOMS, joins us today on the podcast. Blake created the One for One® business model. It is a business structure that helps a person in need with every product purchased.  In this interview, Blake brings us back to the birth of TOMs and how the giving model has evolved over time and continues to impact tens of millions of people all over the world every year. He is passionate about the latest initiative that TOMs has chosen to take a stand on: Ending gun violence.  Part of this initiative is to make it easy for any American to go online and send their local representative a postcard asking them to vote for universal background checks for the purchasing of guns.Currently, Blake is on an End Gun Violence Tour and needs our help.
