Here is one of those inspiring stories about people making a difference with simple, yet powerful ideas.  Take a couple minutes to listen to this audio of an interview with Blake Mycoskie, founder of Toms Shoes.

It’s BOGO philanthropy! And I gotta love it.

According to the blog post (link above): “He (Mycoskie) says he’s spearheading a global movement by harnessing the power of consumers to do good.”
