Baby Hanson Coming
The expecting couple, along with band members Taylor & Isaac and their spouses spent their Thanksgiving holidays in South Africa with Toms Shoes founder Blake Mycoskie. The band was thrilled that they reached their goal of helping sell 50,000 shoes during their recent “The Walk Tour.”
Toms shoes donated a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair that was purchased during the tour. In order to encourage the sale of TOMS during the tour the band staged one mile barefoot walks in 35 cities across the country speaking to their fans about the importance of taking simple actions to fight poverty and AIDS in Africa. During HANSON’s 10 day trip they traveled to various cities across South Africa delivering the shoes to impoverished children in person.
In Additon, they were able to re connect with HIVSA an AIDS research and treatment organization they have helped fund through the sale of their song “Great Divide” available on itunes and their album The Walk.
HANSON returns from Africa today immediately resuming their fall US tour on the 29th, where they will continue their efforts to support both TOMS shoes and HIVSA.
