Ten Ideas to Ensure Mom Has the Best Mother’s Day

a.k.a. How to knock mom’s TOMS shoes off with a stellar Mother’s Day. This post was written by TOMS friend and today’s guest blogger, Jessica Fiorillo of Feed Me Dearly (FYI she’s currently hosting a TOMS gift card giveaway). Mother’s Day is around the corner, making it fitting to discuss a few Mother’s Day strategies. Although an actual strategy may seem over-the-top, you can never be too prepared. Not long ago, my family of 5 made a last-minute effort to celebrate Mother’s Day and ended up at a fast food restaurant. I don’t mean to put down this global chain, but had…

Haiti Behind the Scenes With Reese

Tell me about your experiences with Partners in Health during your trip. We took a bus that couldn’t make it all the way up the hill to the school, so we walked the rest of the way. At the top all of the students greeted us and showed us their original school, this palm hut with a dirt floor. To the right of the hut is the school they were able to build through Partners In Health. We learned that the school serves a close-knit, rural community that has helped the school to succeed even under difficult conditions. James and…

Haiti Behind the Scenes with John

Meet John Whitledge, our Creative Director of Eyewear. We sat down with him to get a behind the scenes look of the time we spent in Haiti for our spring campaign. I’ve seen pictures of you in Nepal and Latin America. Tell me about the times when you’ve traveled with TOMS. Every time I get to travel with TOMS, it is always an adventure and a truly memorable trip.  My inaugural trip was the very first giving trip to Argentina back in 2006 where we gave away 10,000 shoes over the course of week.  I don’t think anything will ever…

Ryan Beatty Travels to Haiti with TOMS

One of our favorite California natives -singer, Ryan Beatty- joined TOMS in Haiti for our spring 2015 campaign photo shoot. This is a country where TOMS is working to not only distribute shoes, but also provide jobs to those in need at our Giving Shoe manufacturing facility in Port-au-Prince. We are very excited to share the sights and sounds of this country over the next few weeks and thought we’d catch up with Ryan to hear what he thought of travelling around Haiti. Visiting Haiti “The trip was such an incredible experience for me. I was backstage at a show the…

Meet Chibia! Our #TOMS Give Back to School Pinterest Contest Winner!

How would you describe your personal style? I’m all about two things: comfort, but classy. You want to be comfortable and still look nice at the same time, right? If I’m wearing a blazer, I will most likely pair with a loose t-shirt. If I am wearing jeans, I roll them up. I really enjoy wearing earth and dark tones. Pops of color are fun too, but you’ll most likely catch me in tan or navy blue. Can you tell us a little bit about the winning looks on your Pinterest board? When I made this board, I focused on…
