"And you can buy five every single or you could be on the suspected terrorist watchlist and still go buy a gun at a gun ship. I mean, this is crazy like it doesn't make any sense. So the reason why I got so engaged in this debate in funding so much of this work and getting people in postcards is there is something called a universal background check. It is very simple. It keeps three groups of people from buying guns felons. Those are known to have a history of domestic abuse. And then those who are. Mentally unstable. And so if you're one of those people today, you can be a domestic abuse and literally have been arrested or if for domestic abuse, and you can go buy handgun. Unfortunately, that's how you know a lot of gun violence deaths happen on in. It's usually females because you know, a suffer from this domestic abuse. And ultimately ends in their partnership. I mean, it's really sad. And it's crazy. It's adds a crazy we allow these people I got so you can be the biggest hunter the biggest again had a big hit in the world and still overly support the idea that each people should buy guns. If we'd pass universal background checks, which will be voted on here in the next sixty days. So this is like right now this happening it, it's it's really on the house floor. I mean, the soon as the government gets running again like this will be voted, you know, in in. This will save tens of thousands glass. It's that simple. So so the reason why I felt so strongly that we could get into this. You know discussion in have a difference as a business is we are a company that has customers that are all different political beliefs all different states in the country, red states, blue states, purple states, and I just don't think this is a political issue anymore. I think is a human issue. And I think we all agree and actually ninety percent of Americans old agree on universal background check. So it is a very very large majority of people have the commonsense say like these people should not go to buy guns. We've passed federal law. They would no longer villain. Do it today. They can buy them online forgot sits ninety there's no checks and balances. So so that's what we're about. We're not about gun control one hundred percent about you can be responsible gun owner, but we literally have to stop these people remind guns the only way to do. So is with a mandatory. Federal universal background check. And so that's what if you go to Tom dot com. Senate foes car that's at the post part is for it's to your Representative is saying I wanna make our country safer, bypassing universal background checks. Please vote for this. When it comes up for vote on the house, and, you know, seven hundred fifty thousand people have done it. And now the fun thing is is. Yeah. Even since we decide to have this conversation today, we've decided they were going to hand the liver host cards to congress on February fifth. So if you're listening to this any live near Washington DC or you wanna take a road trip on you can come join us. It's going to start at nine AM on.

"You use your business, even if it's a small part of your business to drive a social change. And I think that's that's something that people respected help spring loyalty among your customers clients, and it also just makes being in business more meaningful like at the end the day. You know, we do all have basic needs that we need to create income in have. But you know, I think that everyone that I know. I really have deep conversations with them about, you know, like why are we in you're on the planet than via that out of all here for one another, and whatever are still sets are whatever opportunities we have. We can help us those to make other people's lives just a little bit better. It makes life a lot. What's most challenging about you know, leading a movement like this? I think the hardest thing is keeping it fresh are realized would've known that frankly, six months ago, like I think we were just kind of coasting at Tom's, you know, you know, you know, you know, we do very well help. Lots of people are staff is highly engaged, and we're coasted in the truth is the last three years for four years. I don't think we were. I think we were just a great shoot up. The did a lot of good. And and so after making this berry bold and provocative, you know, campaigned in gun violence crane technology in the website. So that people could send a postcard the resume now had seven hundred forty thousand Americans as imposed. I mean, that's a huge number in. Most of them are not some customers. I mean, literally are people that heard about it on the Jimmy Fallon show or solid celebrity tweet about it or whatever but seven hundred forty thousand people have taken the time to go to a shoe company web. Site to write a post mar- that we're sending to the Representative to urge them to pass universal background checks. And so now, we're definitely movement. I mean, there's no doubt about the movement. But I can't question. The hardest thing is is like we were movement, and it just got stale in and we just kind of lost the cultivating of the community up until this recent experience. I think now that we been kind of A a. back up to this and realize that palms debts best when we are being really bowling provocative than activists in in leading movement. Not just selling shoes, we actually sell more shoots. So it actually works allows us to do more things. So hopefully, we won't lose sight of that again. But that was definitely thing that I've learned a lot last year the last couple of months. Yeah. It's hard insight with our the way society is today is such a beautiful thing that we move on. But it's also like, you know with gun violence. It's you know, there have been so many shooting. So it's kind of like all the energy is to that space to kind of work against that. And kind of change that. So the freshness also comes with like for you the permission now, it's like okay now, I have the permission to kind of go for it and to be provocative again. And to kind of really take a stay on and kind of all of the company back to being the activist at this point in time where it's like the perfect place for it. So we grew up in Texas. But did so because you know, guns, and Texas, and then here, I'm like, what is that? What's that? I guess. Yeah. What's that? And then with the gun violence. What's the actual goal with your movement? Yes. So so I am a hundred percent like massive supporter of the second amendment rights. Spiro arms hunting light. There is there is absolutely nothing. That is a huge part of our culture. I, you know, I mean it, but what what would I have zero tolerance? Or is the fact that this year, we had more school shootings than ever in the history tonight states, you know, as as it is a father as a four year old one year old enact zero-tolerance, the fact that you can be felon, and you can get out of jail tomorrow. The next day you can go by five AK47.'s,.

"Said a postcard you Representative. A help them in urged them to it in gun violence in to buy Tom's wear their in wear them tell the story because the only way we can continue take stands on things. It really matter to us customers is it's all funded by the sale of our shoes. Nothing that transparency in talking about that is something that other companies. Also, don't do they try to like trick you into buying their product because they make you feel good about something they're doing, but it don't really hit it on like we did. So as the giving model evolves, and you are giving to causes that are, you know, working for the most important issues of this time what other ways are you looking in two thousand nineteen and beyond to give up their causes. There's so many right now. So many there ones that I personally have interested in gene suicide is one bowling one. A climate change is one. I mean, there is a long list, I have personally, but you know, what I think is most orbit in what it ought always tried to do is really understand what our customer scare about. Because ultimately is their dollars that are there allowing us to do this. And so we're getting ready to launch a big campaign of Stanford tomorrow that we're gonna you're gonna start seeing all the stores that sell Tom's on website where we actually list like eight things we could do next year with another five million dollars and let our community help us decide what we should do next because we're gonna take another big, Dan, you know, in the beginning of twenty twenty and, but we think that rather than us deciding based on an event that happens now, we really want to engage our community. More have them be involved in the neck. Stand that we I have ideas for twenty twenty. Yet. That's interesting about the community because for almost thirty for our community the having the input and the conversation with them to hear from them who they want to hear from who they want us to engage with has been, you know, instrumental in art, not only our growth, but the growth of everyone that's involved. So that's like one of the most beautiful things that you know, I think you're doing and we tried to emulate as well for a lot of. So I of the listeners they are female founders they have businesses that are mostly in like the professional services space. So they're online, they're not necessarily product focus. So what could a small business owner who is in the services space, maybe their digital? Maybe they're doing copy. Maybe they're doing social media. How could they apply a giving back model to their business? That makes sense. I think one of the great things that we have now, especially small business owners. And is we all have. A a massive megaphone by social media by our Email list by our customers, right? Like just didn't exist in years ago. Like now, I mean any one of us, even if you have five hundred followers, you have five hundred people that you can technically get a message to tomorrow. And so we all can be activists in we can use our businesses in our in our community to raise attention to the things that we care the most about so that might be like iron. Oh, you're really passionate about helping people get access to clean water. And so you do a partnership with charity water. So that you know for your company's anniversary, you're asking everyone. Donate your ten Danaher Sherie your business it the anniversary everyone donate five dollars. You know to charity water in the race to get that money is raised. And then they get to celebrate. Look we help build this. Well, you know like. It's it's those types of things that it can be very much tied to you know, you know, something you're doing season anniversary of your business. It could be something that you know, yours is offered like with new clients like when you come on flying. You know, we do acts Amana once it has to be connected your personal passion. So I can't really be scripted in that. But whatever you're passionate about there is a way to engage your community your customers or clients and have them know that you're not just in business for profit..

"What is holding them back from implementing a model like the one for one or taking a stand? You know, Nike did recently with Colin Kaepernick thing, and I think people are starting to really take note from dove and even Gillette kind of taking a stand recently. But what do you think it keeps them from actually having a voice that could make a difference? Like you have. I mean, I think part of it is most companies don't have if they're an legacy company been around for while. They don't have the credibility. I think to take a stand, you know, because a lot of times it could backfire right? I mean, there's mixed reviews. I think on whether the Gillette thing is going to be. In a productive or not for their business. Because if you're a brand that was built on just selling a widget. And then all of a sudden, you take a stand, and it's not often tickly connected to the values of your CEO, or the way your corporate culture is just feel like something to Mark up. Then I think he can actually have a negative impact. Now, I don't think there's anything from keeping entrepreneurship date nece, Dan and building giving model. His like, I think that's future business ending the future netting with millennials and really having engaged consumer it. So I would say every business that starting now there's like I think it's actually a disadvantaged us not have a perspective or social mission enacted, your business might not be as radical as giving something away every time you sell something because very few businesses that have the margin that, but I do think that it's important. But I think for these more legacy companies, I think they have to tread very. It lightly and some of them like is a great example that they have done it to play in the are living breathing it from the executive levels down. And I think it can work, and I think would Nike at work because you know, they were able to say we support I in. That's what we always have done, and was ordained athlete that we think you know, that we believe in. So, but I think that will companies we'll do it. I think they'll also be more disasters early in don't offense getting have the rights do it. But it's also kind of why I felt like a lot of people internally on including my board are Schiavo like, I don't know we have the authenticity to enter the gun bond space. This is like a heavy heavy space where there's you know, tens of millions of dollars spent by nonprofits, and this and that and and and even though we felt connected to it after the Thousand Oaks shooting which was close to my son's school. It's not like we were victims of gun violence ourselves. So there was a lot of question in what my answer was is like anyone has be a thority or the permissions dick STAN on any issue. That's going to make a better tomorrow is Tom because that's why we started to come and from day one. We have been using everyone's purchase to make a difference me part of the solution.

"It's our most businesses fail. Like, it's just like something that you feel like is, you know, a marketing gimmick because you seem Comey's towns be successful having it 'cause it will never work. You gotta deeply deeply care about what you're building your business on what caused if you are connecting it 'cause is to it. The second thing is is it needs to be is simple to understand shares possible because we do have short attention spans these days, but, you know, brought the softening, you know, one of the things that has been the biggest. Personal challenge for me. And for Tom's really the last four years is that even though our model has been emulated by hundreds or thousands of businesses now one for one, and it is very simple. It doesn't mean that it would be affective forever. What I mean by that is after the first seven or eight years all of these shoes sold in given. There has been a diminishing connection too. When you buy for Tom's, you're helping a child in need because they've just heard the story so much. And so even though it's simple in even though we're still doing it is not driving our sales the way once it our sales, basically been flat the past four years, and so no growth at all. And and now we're so helping it's on a people, and we're still developing shoes. But you know, as a brand you need to be growing growing die. And so it's been really challenging for us to realize this simple. Elliott's be created with one for one shoes. While it's great. And helps a lot of people. It has not had the same impact on our business that it did I say seven or eight years in. So we've been talking for a year to now on how do we evolve or giving model to actually use these tens of millions of dollars us every year to make a bigger impact in other issues of our time and other things that we believe are really connected to when our customers caravel, and so we've been talking and talking and talking about this lily for like eighteen months, the point rise almost was kind of giving up that we would ever actually do anything up until recently when we decided to make a major stand in ountry. And so that most people seem like a total one eighty like where did this from? This makes knows maybe this doesn't make any sense Tom's. I know give shoes now is entering, you know, trying to get a law passed that will keep at people from buying guns. And. Make our schools are safer. But really, even though it was very spontaneous decision came after a shooting Eappen close to my home in Los Angeles. It was the seed was being planned in the past years. We earn activist brand in when we're at our best emotionally net with people on issues that they care about. And we need to be able to take some risks in do things differently. So that we can really engage their attention. So that when they buy I choose they are proudly wearing those shoes not because they know that a child got up here. But because they know it's really helping drive something Ford than it really care about. So that's been happening last week's Anatoly turned our business, even my own personal life upside down, but I'm really proud that we stand. I agree. And I want to really dig into that. 'cause that is really important to us to we're we're here in LA. So there has been a lot going on in the gun violence base that I'd love to explore. But I do want to ask you for companies..

"And I remember leaving that day saying that was the best day might five age now is more fulfilling like I felt great. And and I really really was excited about the experience and that night I had dinner with my polo coach. I'm told them about. Got it. And and he listened brand gently news very impressed that I spent my day doing that out and people in this country. He knew very well about these kids in this this this kind of art town. But then he said, we'll what's going to happen when they need their next earth shoots and that single questions. Let led to creation of Tom's because I realized that being a nonprofit in having donations was not really a sustainable way to keep these kids getting shoes because the inbreeding or months, they would either grow out or wear out of these shoes, and it would need another pair in. So that the idea that had the next morning when I was writing my journal that instead of looking to nonprofits charity is Saul society's problems why not live onto preneurs ship. At this point. I'd started for their companies. I love being entrepreneur starting things in creating things solve problems usually commercial problems. But why not do it for aids side of problem? Kids don't have. Shoots. And so that's when I came up the idea of starting shoot company where it's purpose would be every time. It sells a pair of shoes. It would give away. I called it one for one because I thought that the easiest way to describe it. You know, there was no percentages formulas. Just totally transparent. You buy her shoes you want, and you help someone get a pair suits that they need, and I started, you know, awnings people in Argentina could make this unique her shoes. A lot of people were down there. The opera gotta and I made two hundred fifty pairs brought him back LA and got my friends and sister in girlfriends by the first payers in that's what kind of you know, started this idea became times. Wow. And so for you like, you know, when I was twenty I was definitely doing. I wasn't doing anything close to what we're doing. Where did this drive for entrepreneurship come from? And this like thoughtful desire to always learn grow at such an age where you know, the people that I was around in the environments that I was in being from the midwest were not contributing to us wanting to grow personally or wanting to set out and do something different. Like you were doing at such a young age. Sure. Are they all comes from? When I was about ten or eleven years old. I recognize that I had a great gift from tennis. And I was learning to better tennis players in the country. And then I went lifted tennis academy. I spent my whole, you know, kind of you know, youth really focused on trying to become a professional tennis player. And I ended up having injury in college which led to the laundry business on crutches Nightman carry my laundry down. So. Starting laundry business became my first on venture. I remember like his yesterday. I had this business about six months. We had some customers in someone's said men, you're young entrepreneur. And I didn't know what the word utterly had to go to dictionary. Right. Oh, wow. That's really, you know, like that makes sense. And I recognize it every ounce of discipline. And so for Lien's in drive and everything I learned playing tennis. It's such a high level really translated competitiveness to being an entrepreneur starting business, you know in. So, you know, that's I think what I acquit channel all that energy of winning to federal tennis player to when to be a great entrepreneur in because I was a nineteen year launch for neuro with forty employees, which is very rare especially back, then I would naturally have these more established entrepreneurs in Dallas, Texas, a thick one a mentor mate, and like take me to dinner in these people were really successful..

And we let it flow wherever it's meant to flow. So, but for those who don't know your story, we would love to cut to talk about how Tom started. And the why behind Tom's sure. So von started twelve years ago when I was travelling in Argentina, and I was actually down there learning to play polo. All that's so I grew up in Texas riding horses, but it never played polo. I had seen a few coal mashes in thought it was pretty interesting, and I had this. Tradition that I did every year in January good to place. I'd never been before. And learn something that I'd never learned. And the reason I did that was I started my. And I grew up really fast people always said is the oldest on euro they ever met. And now we will say I'm one of the younger four year olds. Reverse like, I literally kind of sacrifice my twenties be an entrepreneur and be working this crazy amount of hours and not doing the fun things that most before doing college instead of instead of being bars or going to tailgate parties doing the normal college students, I was actually doing the laundry of all students at my school because I started laundering business and in. So so basically, I recognize that I was working like crazy amount might twenties. Starting these businesses. I loved it. But I would get out towards the end of every year. So I took January off every year. So no matter what I was doing my company, whatever company running or starting. I had I base everything I could to outsource or put Eric or delegate January, and I would go somewhere in learn something new and so. So this year, I decided to go to Argentina and learn polo of all things and when I was down there. I saw I was traveling between pointed Cyrus. Outside. It's about an hour and a half in the drive through some very obvious neighborhoods to get to the forms for the horses. Ola was and I saw many kids on the streets. You know, not wearing any shoes. Seeing yet an in it just kind of broke my heart in religious. I saw really since poverty. So accuracy in this for weeks at a very serendipitous encounter where I met these these three women in a bar, and they were talking about wine bar when they were talking about the fact that they would have been both on cheer work in Argentina. And they were doing civically something Shujaat, and they were going around clipping slightly used shoes from wealthy families in Buenos iris, and they were going to give them to kids in these villages that I've been driving through. It did not have shoes needed shoes to go to school. And I was just so impressed by back that they were spending their vacation down there to volunteer and. Help kids get shoes. And so I- offered to to help distribute the shoes on this Saturday was coming up when they were going to do it and not knowing anything about this had never done any type of volunteer work before, you know. And so this was all very forms me. And but I thought it sounded like a fun experience in adventure. And so I signed up, and I went to this this village lows daytonas with these women, and I experienced the greatest joined the world like seeing these kids so excited. Get a pair of shoes. Not even a new pair of shoes. Really, really touched me. Their parents were so thankful we played in jumped the kids play soccer with the kids spend the whole day with math became shoes..

"Of bullying, and what we all know, if you know, the Tom's brand for every shoe are pair of shoes. Bought a pair will be given to a child in need of shoes. Yeah. It's such a beautiful concept. And I remember when Tom's came on the scene if you years ago, I bought my TOMS, and it felt really good to support someone, but I hadn't really ever are hadn't ever thought about conscious capitalism. I haven't thought about the way that corporations and how we spend our money could make an impact on the world. You know, something as simple as shoes which you already buying spending that dollars those dollars with Tom's could make a difference. So it made it released for consumers, and then it also made it impact, and you know, growing up I think that there was the paradigm of having money was bad. Or there wasn't ever a connection made between corporations and companies giving back, you know, there was some. Anthropic opportunities or things that were done. But it never was expected of them. And it was really just seen as businesses make money, and then people give money, but it wasn't. I don't know that wasn't connected at all. So for him to kind of start this wave and create such such a stand in the space has been such beautiful thing to see. Yeah. I'm sorry today. I'm I. It's kinda freaking me out of been like really lost for words lately. More think your phone. No, not really because I know what I want to say right now, and it's not really coming the way that I want to so our community little frustrating. Thanks guys feel there. I mean, basically mean ninety five percent of the time. Nobody will also wanted to mention that if you go onto Tom's dot com right now what they're doing at Tom's is evolving giving model. So we mentioned kind of what they've been doing for the last five or six years, but they are now committed to giving resources to the causes of our time. So they kicked this initiative off quite recently saw Blake on the Jimmy Fallon show, and they have donated five million dollars to end gun violence, which is the most money ever donated by an organization for a cause like this. So you can go onto Tom's dot com. Be pa. Part of this initiative, and they created this new technology that within thirty seconds. You can send a postcard tear Representative that will help pass universal background checks for gun purchases. Yeah. So it's really great in this interview. Blake explains what universal background checks are. And it's pretty simple. So it's making sure that, you know, people like convicted felons don't have access to buy guns and just getting tighter on purchasing guns. It's not hard and fast, and it applies to basically everyone, whether you're democrat Republican, it's basically a human thing. So on Wednesday Tom's announced that they're doing an end gun violence together tour, which is a multi city event deliver more than seven hundred thousand postcards, which now is way more and probably going to be a million when they get there to congress in support of universal background checks. So they're going to be visiting various cities, and they're going to be ending in Voss. In DC on February fifth, and you can come support them. You can give your postcards, you can kind of your thing to show that you believe too that there should be universal background checks something that we support here at almost thirty. So thank you to Blake truly. Thank you for coming on. And being so present for a paving the way as an entrepreneur that is building a business and the backbone of that business is giving back, you know, it's it's really setting the standard for future entrepreneurs. And slowly. But surely, hopefully sooner rather than later, I think it's happening quite quickly because they're taking your lead..

As a teenager is thirteen road home runs are also the most all time by a teenager. See any other baseball numbers here and really got like a boatload of those. What about I saw something with the is it Trevor story the the Rockies didn't he like these one of the first ever do homers stolen base hit his fortieth double and RBI's hundred RBI is too, but he's also got twenty five stolen bases and he's got a pretty incredible stat line there. I've course screwed it up. Fortieth double yet to ninety three. He's got thirty two homers one hundred RBI twenty-five steals forty doubles. And I don't know last time that happened for. Did he rod? I see a rod thirty homers hundred RBI twenty stolen bases, but I don't know if he had as many. Trevor story is fortieth. Double yesterday's. The first baseball player shortstop ever to have thirty or more homers forty or more doubles twenty five or more stolen bases Francisco, Linda or the Indians two stolen bases away from that feet. The only other place to accomplish that Chipper Jones Barry Bonds, Willie Mays and Larry Walker and Ellis Burks. Let's see anything else in here. Now I think that's you and you play in Colorado. Do automats not get credit for your power and it's dismissed. I don't know if people are still doing that. The way they once did when those numbers were, you know, felt like they were disproportionate. I'm lucky the knowing Aaron auto in Trevor story, and I'm thinking that Scott us still be a factor. I mean, they're like they're both tied for third in league in homers and until no one heard it. Trevor story till this year. The allegation hasn't changed their right. It's still same allegation. Seahawks hundred ninety four yards on a pot or something in Denver last night now I make it that up, but he Dalmatians a big deal. Yeah, but where where do the Rockies rank in baseball? The last ten years in home runs now they top ten. I'd be curious about that. But remember when you had Dante Bichette Andreas Gallaraga, Larry Walker, Todd, Helton like yet some guys and then they go on the road and you go. What happened? Wait. Aren't you the same guy?
