Hawk Nelson joins with Toms shoes to help children

Hawk Nelson has partnered with TOMS shoes to provide shoes to children in Haiti as part of TOMS “One for One” initiative. For the band’s effort, every pair of shoes purchased via Hawk Nelson’s website equals a pair of shoes that TOMS will donate to a child in Haiti for the band’s ongoing involvement with the Hands & Feet Orphanage. Hawk Nelson has also partnered with TOMS to release a shoe designed by the band in the fall of 2009.

Fans will get a chance to meet Hawk Nelson up close in personal at their upcoming tour stops in Texas and Los Angeles. The guys will stop by three TOMS retailers to host exclusive TOMS events. The first 50 customers to buy a pair of TOMS from the retailers will get the chance to customize their TOMS with Hawk Nelson. The TOMS Style Your Sole program is a unique way to bring together a group of people, encourage creativity and share the One for One mission. Friends and family, community organizations, and TOMS retailers get together to create their own special pair of TOMS using a ton of different mediums: markers, paints, fabrics, buttons and stencils just to name a few.
