TOMS Shoes #OneForOne Program Circles Back to the US! Buy TOMS Shoes and “Give Back” to Those in Need! Part 2
People wonder how to help those in need — particularly when time is scarce to volunteer or they wonder about donation they feel is not quite enough. What do you do when you want to help but really want the bucks you donate to make a visible difference? Turn to TOMS Shoes and buy a pair (or more) of shoes for kids, adults or gifts- there’s something for everyone.
TOMS Shoes #OneforONe program is well-known for having provided shoes for children and eyecare for those in need around the globe. The company recently hit the mark of having given away it’s 10 Millionth pair of shoes in June 2013. In the next 18-24 months, TOMS expects to give away another 10 million pairs of shoes to children in need. Just two years since launching TOMS Eyewear, Toms and its’ Sight-Giving Partners have helped restore vision to more than 150,00 people!

TOMS #OneforOne Program has already started in the USA. It has been in these states:Kentucky and South Dakota. Now TOMS has chosen three more states: New York, New Mexico and California to bring shoes to children in need. By the end of 2014, TOMS expects to have been in 35 states providing shoes.
How do you participate in this “give back” or #OneForOne? SHOP!! You can find TOMS shoes at www.Toms.com or find a store near you on their website HERE . They have shoes in most major clothing retailers like Nordstrom, Bloomingdales etc but also you can find them as easily in a store near you– which I did when I went into WHOLE FOODS and found this display last week:
And a close-up of the basic shoes in a mind-boggling array of colors:
When you think about it, there’s a lot you can do just by checking out the TOMS site and shopping online, visiting stores near you and even when you unexpectedly run into them.
Stay tuned. There will be a post about the fashion aspect because there’s a lot more to TOMS than basic slip-on shoes and I am just the fashion-obsessed person who would like to show you some styles you could use for your fall wardrobe that would update it as well as give back on a #OneForOne. It’s a win-win-win for everyone!
