TOMS founder brings one-for-one philosophy to FPU

By wayne.steffen on November 4, 2010 @ 12:29am

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:

Several events also dovetailed with Mycoskie's visit:

  • Help put the one-for-one philosophy into action with Shoe Drop
  • Day Without Shoes gave FPU students a taste of life for children without shoes
  • FPU's Global MBA isn't like any other master's degree—see why
  • TOMs Shoe Dayat FPU
  • Business Forum wouldn't happen without our community sponsors—thank you!
