TOMS TRIBE SOUNDTRACK

Warm lattes, passing hallway hellos, the first round of morning emails… the shuffle at the start of the day here at TOMS. You can pin a song to any moment, and kickstarting the day with a perfect melody always sets a good tone. As our internship winds to a close, we compiled some of the music that has accented our time at HQ. From relative newcomers to genre staples, this playlist covers the bases. This is our slice of California summer, sit back and press play.

Introducing TOMS Sight Giving Partner Visualiza

Since 1995, Visualiza Eye Care Center, has provided high-quality eye care to people in Guatemala City and beyond. In 2002, the then-private clinic expanded to offer public services for local people in need. The evolution of Visualiza’s services meant they could access eye care at an affordable rate; their fees were subsidized by Visualiza’s private side. It was the first time this had been done in Latin America. Despite the many critics, Dr. Mariano Yee and his staff have successfully run the social and private clinic at the same time, providing the same high quality of service to each patient,…

Heba Receives New Prescription Glasses

At TOMS, our mission to restore sight is fueled by the effectiveness of treatment. That’s why we currently work with 17 Sight Giving Partners to help eliminate avoidable blindness and restore sight in 13 countries worldwide. Around the globe, uncorrected refractive error is one of the leading causes of visual impairment. Refractive errors develop when the eye has difficulty focusing on objects clearly. Whether the trouble is with objects that are near or far, the resulting blurred vision can cause visual impairment at any age. While refractive errors cannot be prevented, they can be treated — starting with an eye…

A SUMMER AT TOMS: BACKGROUNDS

It’s halfway through the summer, and the Tribe has spoken. Working at TOMS is awesome. Each department is unique and colorful in its own way, bustling with energy inside of HQ. Every employee has arrived here with a story, many of which we’ve been fortunate to hear over these last few weeks. As we begin the second half of our internship, we took a second to reflect on our paths leading to TOMS and what moved us to apply for a spot within the Tribe. Carolina Amaya Hi I’m Carolina and I’m from Downtown Los Angeles, which makes me the…

Marketplace Feature: Melody Murray, Founder of JOYN

What compelled you and your husband to travel to Uganda your first summer as newlyweds? We were crazy – crazy in love and crazy dreamers. We had big dreams from the day we met. David and I grew up in amazing families with opportunities to travel, receive a good education, expand our world view at young ages. We both had a desire to give others who were less fortunate the opportunities that we had been gifted our entire lives. This is one of the main things that drew us to each other initially and still drives us closer to each…

Discover TOMS

TOMS was born from a desire to discover. What started as an adventure in Argentina has become a journey that has taken us to over sixty countries worldwide. Earlier this year, TOMS traveled to Guatemala, where we now give shoes, vision and water. Looking at the photos from our trip, you’ll see TOMS employees like Joanna – who designs our retail store interiors – exploring fascinating locations, like the natural limestone bridge at Semuc Champey. You’ll see kids playing in Giving Shoes that they received through programs run by our Giving Partner Children International. And you’ll see Guatemala, a beautiful…

Safe Water in Malawi

The natural dissipation of continuous, pure water disrupts more than just an everyday routine. In Malawi, when one village’s main river began to dry up, mothers and children were forced to spend hours every day searching for water and the entire community experienced a decline in safety, good hygiene and well-being. TOMS Roasting Co. partners with Water For People to provide sanitary water and education in the countries from where we source our beans. After working with Water For People, several villages in Malawi have the support they need for sustained access to safe water, and the tools and knowledge…

Introducing TOMS Giving Partner Children International

This season, we’re taking you on a journey with us through Guatemala. Last spring, a TOMS team of employees headed into the field to explore, adventure and most of all, learn about the incredible work our Giving Partners in shoes, sight and water are doing every day to help improve communities and the lives of people who live in them. Today, we’d like for you to meet Children International, a Shoe Giving Partner in Guatemala. Children International began working in Guatemala in 1979. They currently serve the needs of nearly 340,000 impoverished children and youth worldwide, including more than 30,000 in…
