This Post comes in from Garett Awad a driven entreprenuer at TOMS Shoes changing the lives of children around the world one step at a time…
I work with a socially driven shoe company called TOMS shoes, and for every pair we sell, we give a pair of shoes to children in need around the world. We have given around 65,000 pairs of shoes since 2006 and plan on giving an estimated 200,000 pairs away in 2008.
This past March we had an event in La Jolla Beach, CA. The event was centered around the idea of giving back and soothing one’s self in the busy world that we live. At the event we had foot massages, live acoustic music, and of course a great tea tasting from the Art of Tea.
The flavorful teas that were brought by Art of Tea contributed to the cultured experience that was enjoyed by the guests that night. It is rare to experience a tea tasting, and for many it was their first time. It was wonderful to explain the back story on all of the teas to the attendees, contributing further to the overall experience of the night. Many asked where they could find the tea and said it was some of the best tea they had ever had before. It was a great addition and one we hope to include with more events in the future.
