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!
