Charitable Merchant to Watch: TOMS

TOMS shoes

At, we love to partner up with charities and we also like to highlight the work our merchants are doing to partner with charities. If you’ve been with us for awhile you might remember our Facebook campaign last year to raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Today, we’re hoping to help TOMS give 100,000 new pairs of shoes to children in 10 countries. We need your help!

For one day only, May 10, Instagram your feet #withoutshoes or with your TOMS and help give 100,000 new pairs of shoes to children in 10 countries. TOMS is already pretty well known for donating one pair of shoes for every single pair of shoes purchased, and the #withoutshoes campaign last year was a huge boost to that cause. We hope the campaign this year provides even more shoes.

A simple Instagram photo can mean so much to a child in these 10 countries. Who will you provide with shoes tomorrow?

Your picture could help a child in India, where TOMS shoes help them complete their uniform so they can go to school.

In Ethiopia, a pair of shoes protects children from diseases like popoconiosis, an extreme swelling of the legs due to irritant soil.

Shoes help eradicate and prevent the infestation of jiggers (a burrowing sand flea) in Kenya.

Your photo or your friend’s might help Syrian refugees in Jordan.

Remember it’s not just your Instagram photo that provides shoes to these kids in need. Your purchase of shoes will donate a pair of shoes to these same kids in need. With spring upon us and summer on the horizon, check out a few of the cute new TOMS that you can even get cash back on!


These classic pink canvas TOMS for women are perfect for sundresses.

If you’re feeling political, TOMS even has democrat donkey and republican elephant prints to support your candidate for the 2016 presidential election.

This neat flamingo print was designed by an artist in Haiti and will be available soon. 

Whatever print you choose, you’ll be providing a pair of shoes to a child in need, and you’ll get cash back, too. TOMS has many different styles now, so even if the classic isn’t your style, you could try sandals or sneakers. TOMS has even expanded into eyewear (which provides sight-saving surgery, prescription glasses, or medical treatment to help restore sight). TOMS bags provide training for skilled birth attendants and the vital materials needed to help a woman safely give birth, and TOMS coffee provides clean water in the countries from which they source their coffee. TOMS currently works in over 70 countries!

But for May 10th, the focus is on shoes for children, so Instagram your feet #withoutshoes or your TOMS and help give 100,000 new pairs of shoes to children in 10 countries.

Remember: Each picture must be on a public profile and hashtagged #withoutshoes. One picture per person.
