We all love TOMS, the shoe company that is also a philanthropic force helping those in need around the world. This season, Target is teaming up with this 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!
And Target has more than just TOMS shoes! TOMS has beautifully crafted natural clothing collections for men, women and children as well rich and earthy home accessories. You can view their entire Target collection here.
So how are shoes changing the world one pair at a time?
In 2006, company 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 fo new shoes given to a child in need. One for One.
Blake believes that we are all responsible for each other: “I was so overwhelmed by the spirit of the South American people, especially those who had so little, and I was instantly struck with the desire — the responsibility — to do more.” With that ethos as its mission statement, TOMS Shoes has given 10 million pairs of shoes to children in need. Along with this extraordinary feat, this company with a heart has provided prescription glasses and sight-saving surgery in 10 countries around the world.
Remember, for each TOMS product you purchase at a Canadian Target store from November 16, 2014 through March 12, 2015, TOMS and Target will donate the monetary equivalent of a blanket, a pair of shoes or a week’s worth of meals to Canadian giving partners including the Canadian Red Cross and Food Banks Canada. These vital charities will oversee the efforts to get your donations to those in need.
So with the season of sharing, caring and family soon upon us, partner with Target and Toms to bring a small but significant change to someone less fortunate.
Just in case you didn’t know. If you purchase the products in Canada they will help families right in Canada.
