Many of you are familiar with TOMS shoes (check out our post on how to braille your TOMS!) but did you know that the TOMS One for One Movement has extended to help people in need of eye surgery, glasses, or medical treatment all over the world? YES! Just another reason to love Blake Mycoskie and grab a new pair of shades! TOMS chose to tackle the sight problem for a number of reasons, but we at Sensory Sun love "Reason #3 - Sight Means Education and Opportunity." We are aware of the obstacles of living with vision impairments in our visual world, so if someone out there has the chance to see, then thank you TOMS for giving them the chance!
