TOMS: One for One
With your purchases, TOMS helps give
shoes, sight, water, safe birth and bullying prevention services
in over 70 countries around the world.
What started as an idea born out of a holiday to Argentina, has now turned into a global success giving to date over 60 million pairs of shoes to children in need. For every pair of TOMS shoes you purchase, a child in need receives a pair of fitted shoes.
Founder and former Amazing Race competitor, Blake Mycoskie had a vision - to create a better tomorrow and his simple motto, one for one, has seen the company grow from strength to strength and branch out into other similar giving back ventures.
Through the purchase of TOMS Eyewear, you can now help give sight to a person in need with a full eye exam by trained medical professionals. For each pair of glasses sold, a patient receives the treatment required to help restore sight. TOMS works with a network of 14 Giving Partners in 13 countries to help provide communities in need with access to eye care and to date they have helped over 400,000 people. With restored vision, patients are able to reclaim their independence.
