Marketplace Feature: Give Perf

TOMS is thrilled to have a new partner on TOMS Marketplace, Give Perf. We sat down with Brooke and Casey, the (newly engaged!) couple who founded the company to hear how they got started and what we can expect to see next. Tell us the story behind the name Give Perf. “Perf” is a term that has been used in Casey’s family for years.

Campus Supporters of the Month: February

Sharing the TOMS movement means something different to everyone, but it is in these differences that we begin to see the common goal that brings all TOMS fans together.

We aim to bring this goal to life as the TOMS Campus Club at The Ohio State University (OSU). Our club’s primary purpose is to spread the giving mission that started with the absence of a shoe. Sharing the story and meaning behind TOMS products allows…
