I have a secret. Okay, it’s not so much of a secret for those who know me. I have a weakness for SHOES! It really makes me feel good knowing that companies I support “do good” for others. This is what I love about the super comfortable, socially responsible TOMS shoes!
In case you didn’t know, TOMS is a philanthropic company whose philosophy is quite commendable.
One for One for All.
What’s even better is that Target is teaming up with the socially responsible company for the One for One for All promotion. Starting November 16th, for every Target+Tom’s Limited Edition gift you buy, these two companies will donate a pair of shoes, a cozy blanket or warm meals to those in need!
A little history about TOMS
Are you wondering how TOMS shoes are changing the world one pair at a time?
In 2006, founder, Blake Mycoskie was traveling in Argentina and found that the children in a local village had no shoes. Wanting to help, he created TOMS and promised that they would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One.
This initiative is both inspiring and heartwarming, and makes me proud to support TOMS. It also helps that TOMS shoes are some of the comfiest shoes around!
