TOMS Eyewear's One for One = more than you think
We often share the transformative moments: when someone sees his/her grandchildren for the first time in years after a sight-‐restoring surgery, or when the chalkboard in a classroom is suddenly clear with a new pair of glasses. But the third component of TOMS Sight Giving is equally important. Read More >>

Well, here we are, friends, at our last intern blog of the summer.
Time flies when you’re having fun, eh? All good things must come to an end? Blah blah blah. I’ve recently decided that those mottos are a bunch of junk.
Yea yea - it seems like yesterday that we arrived at HQ, but the summer’s been full and there’s no way to walk away from this experience feeling as fulfilled as we do today if time flew that quickly. We made our days count, so they didn’t fly away, they just became blog posts and retail displays, TOMS events and projects.
There’s this quote that I really like, and I think it’s perfect for the occasion, especially given the major milestone TOMS is celebrating thanks to you guys - getting ready to give the one million pair of shoes to a child in need (niceee!). Here goes…
“There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning.”
Giving a million pairs of shoes is amazing. Wrapping up a summer stuffed to the brim with accomplishments that seemed way out of reach, lessons that seemed way out our league, and knowing that we really made a difference for a movement we’re passionate about - that’s pretty admirable too.
But the most awesome, literally the part that leaves me in awe, is the rest of the story waiting to unfold.
We’ve got millions more shoes to give that can make a huge difference in the lives of children around the world, and we’ve got millions of challenges in the form of super sweet internships, jobs, classes and big decisions, that call our names from somewhere in future. Let’s go get ‘em, champs.
Summer interns - miss you already. TOMS fans - don’t make me miss you! Spread the movement and be everywhere!
Thanks for an incredible couple of months.
