Toms Espadrilles. Style with Charity.
Is a 90-employee operation headquartered in southern California. Shoes of this company are an ideal mix of charity and business. With every pair you purchase, Toms will give a brand new pair to a child in need. Their moto is ” One for One” . In a typical “buy one, get one free” arrangement, the benefit accrues only to the buyer, she says. “With the TOMS model, you generate something for someone else while also advancing your own fashion.” says Lisa Jones Christensen ( professor of strategy and entrepreneurship at The University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School.)
Just over a year ago (last September) Toms gave away its one millionth pair of shoes.
