Ruben Brown has made it all the way down to Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas!

When he arrived at The Salvation Army in Arlington, he had a group of excited young fans waiting for him. Ruben also rolled west to the Mabee Center where he served lunch. At both Salvation Army programs, he didn’t waste any time getting involved and hanging out with his new friends.

Check out our photos to see all the fun!

Shed Your Shoes & Style Your Soles with TOMS

Thursday, April 7, 2011

On Tuesday, more than 125 children from The Salvation Army Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex Command participated in the “Style Your Sole” party, hosted by TOMS Shoes and the Dallas Cowboys, inside Cowboys Stadium.

For the event, each child received a natural canvas pair of TOMS shoes to decorate any way they chose using paints, markers, glitter and other accessories. Once completed, each child was able to keep the shoes to wear and enjoy.

In addition to the shoes donated to the participating children in last night’s party, another pair was donated to a child in need, as part of TOMS’ one-for-one movement.

The evening’s festivities culminated in the children joining hundreds outside Cowboys Stadium to participate in the “Walk Without Shoes.” The children and the participants walked barefoot around the stadium to raise awareness of the millions of children who grow up without shoes, at risk of infection and disease.

Both events were part of TOMS 4th Annual One Day Without Shoes awareness campaign.

Thank you to TOMS Shoes, the Dallas Cowboys, and all the participants for making a difference for children in need in our country and across the world!
