This is the non-profit arm of TOMS Shoes, a retail shoe company that for every pair of shoes it sells, donates a pair to needy children in places like Argentina and South Africa. They sponsor "Shoe Drops" whereby volunteers travel to the country of the drop and help deliver the shoes. I participated on a drop in Mendoza, Argentina. The organization of the drop was good, aided by an experienced in-country coordinator named Jose Luis Verdejos. The other volunteers were positive, eager and great at making the kids feel comfortable. We must have passed out over 5,000 pair of shoes to kids aged from 9 months-18 years old. We also were able to experience a lot of the cultural of Argentina, a definite bonus!
