#TOMSforTarget ~ Listen up, Target and TOMS enthusiasts, because I have some amazing news that is going to knock your socks off!
Target and TOMS are teaming up on a limited-edition collection for the holidays. Not only will you find pieces you’ll want to give – and get – but for each item purchased, you’ll be helping someone in need.
#TOMSforTarget features more than 50 items, each under $50, and will be available at all Target stores in the U.S. and Canada, as well as Target.com on November 16 … so mark your calendars now! And beyond TOMS’ beloved slip-ons, the collection includes home goods and apparel and accessories for women, men and kids, meaning you’ll have a lot to choose from.
Are You Familiar with the TOMS story?
In 2006, American traveller and philanthropist, Blake Mycoskie, befriended children in a village in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One.
Realizing this movement could serve other basic needs, TOMS Eyewear was launched. With every pair purchased, TOMS will help give sight to a person in need. One for One, For All
This season, Target is teaming up with this socially responsible company for the One for One, For All, #TOMSforTarget promotion.
Blake Mycoskie, TOMS Founder and Chief Shoe Giver announces a partnership with Target for an exclusive holiday collection.
You can help too. Beginning November 16th, 2014 and continuing until March 12th, 2015, for every Target+TOMS limited edition gift you buy, these two companies will be giving shoes, a blanket or meals to those in need.
Many of us will be doing much of our holiday shopping in this time frame. Please keep Target in mind, not only do they have TOMS shoes, they have also lined up four amazing product collections, with something for everyone on your shopping list. Not only will you find great gifts for everyone, you will also be helping those in need.
Remember, for each TOMS product 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.
And…if you buy the products in Canada, they will help families right in Canada!
