TOMS is the amazing shoe company that gives a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair that you buy. (They've expanded into glasses now too.) Since they started in 2006, TOMS has given away over 70 million shoes in 70 countries. We love this mission, and TOMS has embraced other key domestic and global issues as well, including common sense gun control, clean water and safer births.
When you're a kid, a new pair of shoes can make you jump for joy as well as feel confident. We feel like these photos capture both emotions extremely well. The happy, excited girls on the left look awesome in their new TOMS. And the little girls on the right absolutely beam in their sturdy school shoes as they walk hand-in-hand together. Making sure girls and young women have access to education and can walk safely to and from school is a huge benefit, thanks in part to TOMS and TOMS customers
