#SELOVES: TOMS Celebrates 10 Years!
I’ll start with this, I love TOMS. I’ve taken mine (both shoes and eyewear) travelling with me on my various trips from the cliffs of Scotland to the streets of Myanmar, to the beaches and jungles of Costa Rica to the scenic rooftops of Spain. Not only does TOMS make amazing products, with every purchase TOMS will help a person in need – if that isn’t philanthropic, I don’t know what is.
A lot of us are very fortunate and live in a place where any (and every) thing is at our fingertips, but unfortunately, this isn’t the case for much of the world. With TOMS’ One for One motto, they give back. This coming Tuesday, May 10th, marks their 10 year anniversary and they want to celebrate big.
On May 10th, TOMS is asking Canadians and people around the world to help raise awareness of the millions of children around the world who live without proper footwear. It’s easy, just post a barefoot picture on Instagram, tag #withoutshoes, and TOMS will donate a new pair of shoes to children in need, up to 100,000 pairs.
Aside from their day #withoutshoes, TOMS is also celebrating their 10th with a special edition grey chambray 10 Year Anniversary women’s classics (available for $65 on TOMS.ca). As always, for every pair of TOMS shoes purchased, TOMS provides a new pair of shoes to a child in need. With every pair of TOMS eyewear purchased, TOMS gives sight to a person in need. And with every TOMS bag purchased, TOMS helps provide a safe birth for a mother and baby in need. So on May 10th – mark it down on your calendar – grab your phone and take a foot selfie, it’s easy, it’s free and a child in need will thank you for it. Can’t wait to see you on Instagram, #withoutshoes.
