I have some TOMS shoes! So do my brother and my husband. Not only are they a great way to help kids, they are also really nice and comfortable shoes! Definitely a good buy. I'll plan on going barefoot on April 8, though I'll miss my TOMS that day. ;)

For additional information, in some countries they use tires as slippers by cutting it and using straw rope as strap for their toes.

It is unbelievable!

Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
