In just four years TOMS Shoes has given away more than one million pairs of shoes to poor children using the one-for-one model of one pair donated for each pair sold.
Mycoskie started his day at the 2010 Business Forum before a sellout crowd of about 1,200 at the Fresno Convention & Entertainment Center. At the FPU main campus, he spoke to students, faculty and staff at College Hour. This visit concluded with a luncheon in Ashley Auditorium that included campus people, Business Forum sponsors and other business leaders.
Here's a video that recaps the day's activities:
