About the Author

In 2006, Blake Mycoskie founded TOMS Shoes with a simple business model: "With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One." In 2011, TOMS launched its second One for One product, TOMS Eyewear, which with every pair purchased helps give sight to a person in need by providing medical treatment, prescription glasses, or sight-saving surgery. Mycoskie will be using 50 percent of his proceeds from this book to create the Start Something That Matters Fund, which will support inspired readers in their efforts to make a positive impact on the world. When Blake isn't working at TOMS, he spends his time reading, writing, fly-fishing, and participating in just about every board sport.
