The TOMS shoe began when Mycoskie traveled to Argentina and, seeing the scores of children without shoes, decided to do something about it. Now for every pair of TOMS shoes purchased, a pair is donated to a child in need somewhere in the world. To date he has been able to give 300,000 shoes to children in need. Many came out to support Mycoskie's project and his new line including Matt Wertz, who also took to a small stage to sing a few songs, as well as Jim Gold, Lionel Geneste David Gruning,David Lauren , Linda Fargo and Roopal Patel.
