We’ve teamed up with AT&T once again to share the story of TOMS and how they have helped us stay connected through the years.

These last several weeks here at TOMS HQ have been quite the experience. Between group projects, meetings with managers, working lunches with TOMS executives, and weekly excursions to places all over the SoCal area, the schedule’s been pretty tight.

One of those fore-mentioned day trips was to the heart of the TOMS U.S. delivery system: the distribution center. Last week we all piled into the TOMS van, adorned with pictures of smiling…
