Target has teamed up with one of our favourite shoe companies the socially responsible company TOMS!
If you don’t know about TOMS I’m happy to enlighten you! This awesome shoe company is a huge force when it comes to helping those in need around the world. Now our favourite shoe company is teaming up with our favourite place to shop Target and they are changing the world one pair at a time! How is that possible?!
Here’s how: starting November 16, 2014 for every Target+TOMS Limited Edition gift that is purchased BOTH of these amazing companies will donate a pair of shoes, a cozy blanket or warm meals to those in need! That is simply put amazing! I already love to shop at Target but this just gives me another reason to go there as I will choose to shop and buy from companies that give back to their communities and globally. I told you they are changing the world one pair (of shoes) at a time!
Not only does Target have TOMS shoes but did you know that TOMS also has exquisitely crafted natural clothing collections for the whole family that you can also get at Target? Yes they do and to get a look at these fabulous collections you can see them HERE and/or go into your local Target Canada of course.
TOMS was created by Blake Mycoskie after he travelled to Argentina back in 2006, it was there where he saw that the children in a local village had no shoes. He made a promise then that he would create a company (TOMS of course) and that company would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes to a child in need, One for One. He believes that we are all responsible for each other and I couldn’t agree more.
I know I’ve already got my eye on a few things to give to my family and it warms my heart to know that others who need it will benefit from my purchases. Thank you Target and TOMS for giving back!
Here’s a sneak peek at what I’m thinking of getting for my family so that those in need can get something too. If you go HERE you can see exactly what your purchase will give back like my examples below 🙂
If you’re going to buy then buy from a company that believes in giving back and is following through on that. So remember for each TOMS product that you purchase at a Canadian Target store from November 16, 2014 through March 12, 2015, TOMS and Target will donate the monetary equivalent of a blanket, a pair of shoes or a week’s worth of meals to Canadian giving partners including the Canadian Red Cross and Food Banks Canada. These vital charities will oversee the efforts to get your donations to those in need.
The season of caring and sharing should be 365 days of the year and now is a great time to start. If you’re thinking of starting your holiday shopping then choose gifts for your loved ones that also give back to those in need.
