Hanson Personally Fit Shoes to African Children, the Video


Hanson


The rock band and TOMS Shoes documented their trip to Africa back in November 2007 in this compelling video.

It has been sometime since Hanson began their charity mission to fight AIDS and poverty in Africa and their long story has been documented in a series of webisodes posted on YouTube. The first chapter has just been brought up, showing them personally "fit shoes" to African children.

The rock band had, last year, successfully garnered the partnership of TOMS Shoes to provide descent shoes for African children. Their fall 2007 tour to support their album 'The Walk' was also conducted in part of the charity mission whereby TOMS Shoes were sold on each show. For every one purchased pair of shoes, TOMS donates another pair for the good cause.

By November 2007, 50,000 pairs of shoes were accumulated and the band traveled all the way to Africa to personally hand the shoes and put them in the children's feet. This moment was captured in a documentary which will be released one at a time. In the coming months there will be more new episodes of the trip.

The next shoe drop is scheduled for July, and this Spring the band will again be helping TOMS reach their goal.

Hanson wrote the song 'Great Divide' that was included in 'The Walk' after their first trip to Africa and Mozambique. The song that was inspired by the local kids features a choir singing "Ngi ne themba" which is translated "I have hope."
