Tom's Shoes at Whole Foods
Life is Good readers can leave a positive footprint on a child’s life when they purchase a pair of TOMS shoes at Whole Foods Market’s Style Your Sole event on Saturday, December 3, 2011.
As part of the TOMS Shoes’ One for One campaign, for every pair of shoes sold, the company will provide a new pair or shoes to a child in need. Local artists will also be on-site from 10 am. – 4 p.m. to leave their mark by decorating each pair of shoes with a custom design for shoppers. Style Your Sole at Whole Foods Market will work to raise awareness for TOMS Shoes’ efforts to support children in developing countries as well as Hawaii’s art scene.
Also, as part of the weekend’s festivities, the Honolulu Academy of Arts’ Art to Go program will be unveiling keiki artwork for shoppers to enjoy as they peruse the aisles or wait for their TOMS Shoes to be transformed into walking pieces of art. Art to Go works to make art accessible to children across the state by bringing instructors and art supplies to underserved communities. In addition to hosting the keiki art show, Whole Foods Market also hosted a Recycle Your Change fundraiser to support the efforts of Art to Go earlier this year.
Artists sharing their time to create one-of-a-kind TOMS Shoes include: Jamie Allen, Solomon Enos, Ryan Higa, Byron Inouye, Christopher Lum, Jon J. Murakami, Cade Roster, Masako Schwalbenitz
