The shoes TOMS donates allow these children to reach their destinations safely. Plus, in many cases, proper footwear is required in order to attend school.

The town of Big Whisky is full of normal people trying to lead quiet lives. Cowboys try to make a living. Sheriff ‘Little Bill’ tries to build a house and keep a heavy handed order. 29 in Vancouver.The goal: To raise money for victims of the massive tsunami that struck several Asian countries (including Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar and Thailand) on Dec. 26, 2004, claiming at least 150,000 lives.The stories: The unbelievable devastation of the 2004 tsunami in Asia inspired several fundraising concerts.

No shocker there: it’s rather common for a woman in her late 40s to have experienced some kissing along the way. It was a sad thing to imagine that Boyle’s life had been devoid of romance, but it’s even sadder to witness the disbelief generated by the woman’s admission that rumours of her lifelong singledom had been greatly exaggerated.Honestly, it’s a testament to Boyle’s subtle media savvy that she thought to toss in that cheeky “never been kissed” line during her Britain’s Got Talent intro, and I fear that the public response says more about the very narrow role in which we’ve cast Susan Boyle. As a culture, we were enamoured of this woman whose existence (we imagined) was far from a fairytale, and we leaped at the chance to participate (even peripherally) in creating her happily ever after.

The European Union, for example, is seeing to incentivize venture capital in “scale ups,” companies beyond the riskier startup phase. However, few in the policy world have made the connection between the growth capital and competitiveness in international trade.Among better examples, the Asian Development Bank has recently found that Asian SMEs sorely lack growth capital to fuel their growth and global competitiveness.
