Sucker for Do-Gooders

TOMS Shoes Founder, Blake Mycoskie, visits Toots & Magoo

Good looks aside, this Blake guy is really something special. Bill Clinton recently introduced him as “one of the most interesting entrepreneurs [he’s] ever met.”DSC_0115.







Blake has created a “One for One” business model that is revolutionizing the way people shop, encouraging conscientious consumerism. Not only that, he’s inspiring a new (and crucial) wave of entrepreneurialism, asking people who want to start small companies to incorporate giving into the model. Seeing  Blake’s business thriving during an “economic downturn” makes me wonder. Surely, things aren’t so bad. Maybe it’s time to change the way we do things.



It was an amazing surprise  to host him at the shop yesterday during his campus visit and even more amazing to hear Blake say Toots  & Magoo “is the kind of store [he] could spend all day in.”

Thanks, Blake!

In case you’re wondering, he bought a rainproof journal. Go figure.
