Tom’s Shoes Announces “One Day Without Shoes” with Kris Allen

17 Mar

Note: read entire post, event time and description has changed

Tom’s Shoes announced over Twitter that Kris Allen will be hosting a “One Day Without Shoes” event on April 8th, 2010 in Little Rock, Arkansas. Benjamin’s Army (rock ‘n’ roll) also from Arkansas, will be opening. Tickets will be $5 with proceeds benefiting Rwanda. Check here for details.

TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One. Using the purchasing power of individuals to benefit the greater good is what we’re all about. The TOMS One for One business model transforms our customers into benefactors, which allows us to grow a truly sustainable business rather than depending on fundraising for support.

Kris will also be traveling with Tom’s Shoes and Bridge2Rwanda to Rwanda, Africa to help deliver over 35,000 shoes from March 26th, 2010 until April 3rd, 2010.

Note: Some people are reporting this event canceled, but Bridge2Rwanda still has him listed to be there and share about his experiences in Rwanda. I am waiting for confirmation on what is going on. Here is what their website says:

Join Kris Allen for the One Day Without Shoes for Rwanda Barefoot Bash
5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
April 7, 2010 at Heifer Village

Just back from Rwanda where Kris placed shoes on the
feet of Rwandan children on behalf of Toms shoes and
Bridge2Rwanda, Kris will share his experiences and some
of his music as Bridge2Rwanda, Heifer International and
Toms shoes celebrate exciting partnerships all three
organizations have with the amazing people of Rwanda.

Ticket Price: $25

Will update when more is known.
