This month I’m choosing to support TOMS’ One for One as November’s Cause of the Month. You’re probably familiar with the TOMS brand from their fab shoes. But what you might not know is that with every pair of shoes purchased, TOMS donates a new pair of shoes to a child in need, hence the organization’s name, One for One.
Since the non-profits inception in 2006, it’s expanded beyond providing shoes, and now also helps restore sight to a person in need with purchases through the TOMS Eyewear line, and one week of clean water with a bag of coffee purchased from their Roasting Co. line.
In about 8 and a half years, TOMS has donated over 35 million pairs of new shoes, helped restore sight to over 250,000 people, and is currently provide clean water in 5 countries (this initiative is brand new – just launched this year).
I love finding new charities to support, especially when I can do so by purchasing an item I’ll get good use out of! This month, I splurged on TOMS Desert Wedge Booties ($88.95) to help support both someone in need and my wardrobe! This is my first pair of TOMS and are hands down one of the most comfortable (and stylish) pair of shoes I’ve ever owned. Definitely a win-win.
