Toms Philosophy

I heard a great story from the founder of Toms shoes, glasses and now coffee.  I was inspired by the saying they start their day with in the office, “Start Your Day by Improving Someone Else’s.”

I think it’s really amazing what the company is doing with the One for One trade.  First they would provide a pair of shoes to the needy for every pair purchased.  Then they expanded to glasses and after a hiatus, the founder came back with another idea of selling coffee.  For every bag bought, they would put money towards creating water filtration systems in countries that need that  kind of help.

That’s all I have for today, just a nice fuzzy feeling story.  Will you start your day by improving someone else’s?
