Halloween 2012: 100 Classic Spooky Songs and Tunes

The first Halloween I spent in London, I went all out. I purchased near £30 worth of candy and decorated the windows with lights and festive Halloween bunting. I did so as I lived in Wimbledon on a street with children and so anticipated I’d get quite a few visitors for trick-or-treat. Much to my surprise, no one came – absolutely NO ONE!

This means that with every pair of their shoes purchased, the company gives a pair of new shoes to a child in a developing country. And since the company started in 2006, they have given over 2 million pairs of shoes to needy children across the globe. Now that is very impressive.
