TOMS: Give the Gift that Gives Back

We’re excited to announce that now available at both our Kerrisdale and Kitsalano locations are kids and babys TOMS! Just in time for the holiday season, we’ve selected this particular line not only for its’ well-known fashionable designs-the Tiny TOMS Glitters are absolutely adorable-but also for their global message to meaningfully contribute; a perfect reminder for the oncoming gift-giving season.

The now famous “One-for-One” movement that TOMS created started with the vision of a backpacker wanting to give back to the Argentinian children he had encountered in his travels. The One-for-One movement donates one new pair of shoes for every pair of TOMS sold to a child in need. So why shoes? Not only are many diseases transmitted through soil, but shoes also prevent cuts and sores that can become dangerously infected when not properly treated. Furthermore, TOMS enables education by helping many complete the necessary requirement of having shoes for a school uniform.

 

This holiday season, give an adorable gift with a mighty conscience.

Come see what TOMS we have in store today, and, while you’re here, check out our professional kid-friendly photo studio and paint-your-own ceramics. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to find out our latest news.
