TOMS; every purchase has a purpose

Today’s blogpost is all about TOMS. TOMS is an American fashion brand that is completely focused on helping people in need.

Through your purchases, TOMS helps provide shoes, sight, water, safe birth and bullying prevention services to people in need.


How It Happens

1. Purchase: Sales of TOMS Shoes, Eyewear, Coffee and Bags drive Giving through the TOMS One for One® model. Every time a TOMS product is purchased, a person in need is helped.

2. Plan: The TOMS Giving Team collaborates with Giving Partners to plan how we can further the partners’ work, by giving TOMS products or helping the partners to provide services.

3. Support: TOMS uses business for good, through tailored products and services, logistical support, local production and more.

4. Give: TOMS’ Giving Partners provide products or services, supporting sustainable and responsible programs for communities in need.

  • Kindness: In the United States, nearly 1 out of every 3 students reports being a victim of bullying. Purchases of the TOMS High Road Backpack Collection will help provide the training of school staff and crisis counselors to help prevent and respond to instances of bullying.


My Opinion

I’m the kind of person who believes we should never turn down an opportunity to make the world a better place. That’s why I love TOMS so much. It’s one of those brands that gives so much back to the world and really makes a genuine effort to make the world a better place piece by piece. That’s also why I would very much like to ask all of you who can afford it to make a purchase from TOMS, since you’re not only doing yourself a favor with their amazing items, but you’re also giving so much back to the people who need it at the same time. I decided to go for the Toffee Suede Men’s Porter Boots and think they look amazing. Not only are they super comfortable, they also fit my personal style really well. The porter boot also comes in the colors Iron Grey and Black.
