Earlier this month, brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zac of music group Hanson took a walk with fans in Toronto to raise awareness for poverty and AIDS in Africa. Eager to discuss their charity efforts, Hanson hopes that the walk will “help people to recognize the issues that exist.”

Hanson members work closely with TOMS Shoes, a footwear company that donates one pair of shoes to impoverished children for every pair sold. Modeled after a traditional, durable, slip-on shoe worn by workers in Argentina, TOMS Shoes are now saving the soles of tens of thousands of little feet across South America and South Africa.

TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie says his singular mission is “to make life more comfortable.”

Says Hanson, “A pair of shoes might not save the world, but we want to take people from knowing about something to … tangible action.”
