Today I want to share about an organization I support and love- TOMS!!
They sell very cute and very "IN" shoes (I have a pair and are planing on getting another very soon + they are SO in that celebrities like: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen,Selena Gomez, zac Efron, Miley Cyrus, Anne Hathaway, and Kristen Stewart just to name a few, have been seen in them;)
The prices may not be wonderful but with the TOMS organization, every pair of shoes bought in America, they give a pair to a child in need.
so basically you are paying for two pairs of shoes!  One for you and one for a kid in a less fortunate country ( like Haiti, China, Africa, and Honduras).

                                 So why do they "NEED" shoes you might ask?   
       Many children in developing countries grow up barefoot. Whether at play,doing chores or going to school, these children are at risk:

 •A leading cause of disease in developing countries is soil-transmitted diseases, which can penetrate the skin through bare feet.   Wearing shoes can  help prevent these diseases, and the long-term physical and cognitive harm they cause.              

•Wearing shoes also prevents feet from getting cuts and sores. Not only are these injuries painful, they also are dangerous when wounds become infected.

•Many times children can't attend school barefoot because shoes are a required part of their uniform. If they don't have shoes, they don't go to school. If they don't receive an education, they don't have the opportunity to realize their potential.

You should relay check it out!  Hope you enjoy!
