TOMS – Gives new shoes to children in need. One for One.
When TOMS sells a pair of shoes, a new pair of shoes is given to an impoverished child, and when TOMS sells a pair of eyewear, part of the profit is used to save or restore the eyesight for people in developing countries. The company launched TOMS Roasting Co. in 2014. With each purchase of TOMS Roasting Co. coffee, the company works with other organizations that they refer to as “giving partners” to provide 140 liters of safe water (a one week supply) to a person in need. In 2015, TOMS Bag Collection was launched to help address the need for advancements in maternal health. Purchases of TOMS Bags help provide training for skilled birth attendants and distribute birth kits containing items that help a woman safely deliver her baby.
Great story. What an inspirational for-purpose, for-profit organization!
