In 2006, while travelling in Argentina, young entrepreneur Blake Mycoskie encountered children too poor to afford shoes, who developed injuries on their feet that often led to serious health problems. Blake knew he wanted to help, but rather than start a charity, he went against conventional wisdom and created a for profit business to help the children who he met. With the help of a local shoemaker, Blake struck out to merge activism and fashion in the form of a local canvas shoe worn by farmers and gauchos alike, called the alpargata. Blake called his creation TOMS Shoes (which stands for "Tomorrow's Shoes") and promised to give a pair of new shoes to a child in need for every pair that he sold. Starting with only two hundred pairs of handmade shoes, optimism, and entrepreneurial charisma, Blake successfully launched TOMS into the high fashion world. They can now be seen adorning the feet of celebrities such as Keira Knightley, Scarlett Johansson, and Tobey Maguire. Blake's mission is to prove that you can achieve financial success and make the world a better place at the same time. In this book, he shares the six counterintuitive principles that have guided the growth of TOMS for the past three years: Make business personal Be resourceful without resources Reverse retirement Keep it simple Stay humble Give more, advertise less The result is an inspiring account of a young man whose entrepreneurial spirit was able to affect change in the world, and a call to others to be inspired to do the same. As part of the One for One initiative, Random House will provide a new book to a child in need with every copy of Start Something That Matters purchased.

In 2006, the TOMS shoe company radically disrupted the for-profit business model, literally for good. In challenging what a money-making company could do with its earnings, TOMS incorporated a giving component within its business model, making giving intrinsic to each sale. For every pair of shoes sold, another pair would be given away to a child in need. Giving thus became ‘good business’ at both levels: in making money and in helping kids. The TOMS Effect is a book that explains
