Dear TOMS friends, fans, and others -
This Thanksgiving, we have a lot to be thankful for at TOMS. We’re thankful that you keep coming back to TOMS time and time again.
Whether you are a first‐time customer or someone who has been with TOMS from the beginning, your purchase means that we can continue to honor the One for One promise we make to you and to our Giving Partners. It allows us to continue to support communities and children with new shoes and restored vision.
This year, your loyalty has helped bring new shoes to children in more than 50 countries. We’ve added more high-caliber Giving Partners to our partnership network and are excited for what 2013 holds in shoe giving.
And then there is sight-giving. In 2012, we at TOMS were grateful to see TOMS Eyewear turn a year old, and for the ability to have scaled up our Sight Giving efforts from three countries to 13 in just one year. Thanks to your support, this year’s Summer of Sight initiative was a huge success, enabling our TOMS Sight Giving Partners to restore sight to 100,000 people around the world.
We understand that it takes many steps to help break the cycle of poverty and we are honored that, together, we can all be a small but relevant piece to the puzzle.
From our TOMS family to your family, wherever you’re gathering: Happy Thanksgiving,
TOMS Chief Giving Officer
