LOS ANGELES, Dec 1, 2008 / FW/ — Today is Cyber Monday and according to a Shop.org survey conducted by BIGresearch, 84.6 million consumers plan to shop online from home or at work, up from 72.0 million in 2007 and 60.7 million in 2006.

And, if you are one of the 85 million who will shop on Cyber Monday, help TOMS Shoes give 30,000 pairs of shoes to children in Ethiopia suffering from a debilitating disease that is 100% preventable by wearing shoes.

For 30 days, from November 20th to December 20th, purchase a pair of shoes at www.TOMSshoes.com and TOMS Shoes will give a pair of shoes to a child in need. With the mantra ‘One for One’, TOMS Shoes holiday mission is to give 30,000 pairs of shoes in 30 days.

Founded in 2006 by Blake Mycoskie, TOMS Shoes has one simple premise – for every pair purchased, TOMS gives a pair of shoes to a child in need.

Since its inception, TOMS has given over 85,000 pairs of shoes to children in Argentina, South Africa, Ethiopia, and the United States. Over the next 12 months, TOMS has pledged to give over 300,000 pairs of shoes to children in need around the world.

TOMS Shoes start at $34 for kids, and $42 for men and women. For more information or to participate in the campaign, please visit www.TOMSshoes.com today.
