Many of you have probably heard of the iconic Toms Shoes’ and their charitable slogan, “One for One.” Many of you may have even read Start Something That Matters by Toms’ creator, Blake Mycoskie. If you have not heard of Toms, its a simple yet stylish brand that started out with a line of colorful canvas shoes. Since the first pair of shoes, the Toms company has grown to sell all types of shoes and products, including sunglasses. The great thing about Toms products is that for every item you purchase, an item is donated to a child in need. That is for ever pair of shoes you purchase, a pair of shoes is gifted to a child who needs footwear. This is a new kind of charity! You are not asked to donate or spend extra on your purchase; the deal is entirely “one for one”
Even if you have heard of Toms, you may not be familiar with their bridal line. The Toms “Wedding Collection” features all types of shoes from wedges to flats, with and without shimmer and sparkles. The collection offers items for groomsmen, brides, bridesmaids, and flower girls. Take a look:
