TOMS for Target…PLUS a Giveaway!

Kids Shoes

I’m not sure how old The Tall Blonde was when she purchased her first pair of TOMS, but I know for sure we’ve seen many a pair kicking around this house! In fact, it was in 2012 when I first wrote about TOMS‘ founder Blake Mycoskie…and his impressive organization!

TOMS operates on a One for One® giving model…where every purchase helps a person in need. It started with the shoes…buy a pair, and the company gives a pair away…then it moved on to sunglasses, where the purchase of a pair of glasses provides much-needed medicines and surgeries for those suffering loss of eye sight…and now, it’s expanded even more!

When my daughter bought her first pair…they felt different to her. She knew she was helping a child in another country just by wearing a trendy pair of shoes…and it empowered her. The TOMS sticker, bright and prominent on the front of her computer, has travelled with her to many countries…places where she has seen with her own eyes how lucky she is. Bones now wears TOMS as well…and the TOMS bag, that comes in the box of shoes, hangs proudly next to all of her school awards and horse show ribbons.

This Sunday, November 16th, Target will be joining in this fabulous campaign as they launch, for a limited time, their TOMS for Target collection! Target’s product line will include more than 50 items in apparel, accessories, shoes and home decor. With each item purchased, Target is donating shoes, meals or a blanket to those in need…in partnership with TOMS and North American based charities including the Canadian Red Cross and Food Banks Canada.

This holiday season, when you purchase from the TOMS for Target collection…you’ll not only be purchasing a fabulous gift item for a loved one, but you’ll also be helping someone in need…right here at home!


AND, since Target is in the spirit of giving, they’ve generously provided a $100 Target Gift Card for me to give away to one lucky reader!

It’s simple to enter, just fill in the form below…make sure to comment on THIS POST letting us know one of the TOMS For Target products you’d like to purchase. (Pssst, make sure to comment on the actual post, but put your NAME in the comment box on the form.)

Contest ends on November 28th, 2014. The winner will have 48 hours to respond and we’ll ship your gift card to you. This giveaway is open to residents of Canada, 18+ (excluding Quebec). All entries are verified.

Good luck and THANKS to Target for partnering with such an amazing organization!

  1. I am a fan of these kinds of companies for sure!

    TOMS is doing something right. They have products that are worthy of the dollars kids (and parents!) spend on them, but they are also doing some pretty amazing things from a social consciousness standpoint.

    I LOVE that!

    I *will* be buying several of these products. The beanie hats and convertible mittens are very cute and functional!

  2. Love my Toms! Love that I’m helping someone or I should say lots as both my daughter and I own Toms. My daughter has at least 10 pairs and I have a few ! Most comfortable shoe I own! Can you say we love our Toms!

  3. I didn’t know anything about this company until I read your blog, Colleen. I didn’t realize the contributions they make to society. I think that is fantastic!! I would love a pair of toms and I really like the poncho. The kids tees are pretty cool too.

  4. i love the throw and the women’s grey zip hoodie – of course I’m a huge fan of the shoes judging by my closet 🙂 – and the concept of giving back a pair! The blanket idea is great too

  5. I have always wanted a pair! Heard tbey are so comfortable. I am a plain jane…would probably just pick a plain black.

  6. shoes for my daughter, because her feet just don’t stop growing! and she will love that it will also be helping someone else.

  7. I’ve used Nexcare on many cuts and scrapes especially the big ones! I would love to win the giftcard:)

  8. I’ve never had a pair myself but I used to steal my daughters when she wasn’t wearing them LOL Would love a pair of my own shoes!

  9. So great to see TOMS & Target team up on this wonderful campaign. It certainly helps with Christmas ideas when you know that the gift that you purchase is also helping someone in need. I love all of the line, but I particularly like that cream poncho. 🙂

  10. This is great, I love this company and it’s awesome that they’re partnering with Target! I really try to buy from ethical companies that support fair trade but TOMS goes even further than that! I’d like to get a grey pair probably.

  11. We are enormous fans of Toms at my house! I have 4 pairs, and I’ve gotten them for F in the spring/summer since they’re easy for him to get his little feet into. As it were, I’m writing a blog post for YMC on the many brands that we can shop that give back to our neighbours near and far. 🙂

  12. I want the denim Toms in the picture… seriously, I was looking for a pair of shoes like that ALLLLLL Summer!

  13. I’m obsessed with the candle in the woodbox! So classic. Can’t wait to pop into a store and see the collection in person!

  14. What a great giveaway! I love the blanket and the gold candle. And I think I’d probably also snap up either the sweatshirt or that cute slouchy hat!

  15. I love shoes. A lot. However I think I would buy that poncho – love it and love the idea a blanket would then go to the needy.

  16. I love Toms (and Target)! I would buy my bestie a hoodie because she has two kids and limited funds and could use something new for herself!

  17. It’s pretty great when fashion can extend to helping others – my 12 year old daughter loves Toms, so she is pretty excited about the Toms line at Target. But I’ve got to say, I have my eye on that fringe throw – gorgeous, and you can never have too many throws in the winter!

  18. Such a great concept! I love the grey poncho, and the throw blanket. A visit to Target is in my very near future to check them out.

  19. I’d love to buy a Toms Hoodie for my growing teenager….that way I can borrow it. There’s always a method to my madness.

  20. I would definitely go for the men’s hoodie. Pretty cool that a purchase also helps those in need! Thanks for the cool giveaway 🙂

  21. I would love to buy a pair of Toms… or mittens…love the mens hoodies too.
    Hard to pick – great giveaway!

  22. I love the zip hoodies for kids. My little one is huge into wearing zip up hoodies right now

  23. Both my girls LOVE their TOMS! A gift for them, a pair for me, and a pair to the less fortunate. Win win win!

  24. I love the Toms throw blanket and I’ve wanted a pair of Tom’s shoes since I can remember! Love them 🙂

  25. Would totally get the denim toms! Always Get them for my little one but never for me.

  26. I’ve heard so many great things about Toms, but haven’t tried any yet. Shoes & one of those fine hoodies would be great!

  27. Its really great when companies give like this. Also they have great products that you want to buy. I love the shoes.

  28. I love the denim look shirt, slouchy hat and the scarf! I didn’t know that there was a home line and I love the look of the blankets!

  29. I love TOMS! I’m happy to see Target carrying them now. I think I would be a little selfish and spoil myself with a few things from the women’s line including a hoodie, scarf and maybe even some new things around the house!

  31. I love the shoes of course, but the slouchy scarf is pretty cool and I love that it gives a blanket

  33. I like the TOMS shoes…I should so my kids like the shoes and would really like to have a pair.

  34. I like the womans zip hoodie in grey! I also would be happy to try the shoes…Awesome program…

  35. Love the shoes and the hats/gloves for the kids. The poncho would be great ~ I’m a Girl Guide leader and we sew our crests onto ponchos and blankets. 🙂 Great and worthwhile cause helping those in need!
