It gives me great pleasure to highlight a company where every time a TOMS product is purchased, a person in need is helped!  Blake Mycoskie, over the past several years has created a new kind of business model that screams philanthropic with a new-wave of giving.  They are more than just a shoe company, they have expanded into trendy eyewear, bags, plenty of accessories, treats for Fido, hospital scrubs and even a superb coffee line.  Did you know that TOMS has given over 35 million pairs of new shoes to children in need, which includes 70 + countries, including our own.

It doesn’t end there. If you purchase from their eyewear collection, TOMS provides a person in need with a full eye exam.  TOMS has helped restore sight to over 300 thousand people in need.  With this restored vision, people are able to live a more independent and normal life.  What’s so inspiring is Mycoskie doesn’t care to talk about the company he has built, but would prefer to talk about the movement he is building.

I was so excited when I found out he had a coffee line.    What American doesn’t savor a cup of joe.  With one purchase of TOMS Roasting Co. Coffee, a weeks supply of safe water is provided to those that need it.  TOMS has helped create sustainable water systems in seven countries, from the same regions where they actually source their coffee beans.  With The World Heath Organization recommending 20 liters of safe water per day for adequate health & hygiene, how could you not commend this company for stepping in.

Being a mother of three, this one I hold close to my heart.  With a TOMS bag purchase you are supporting delivering the vital materials and training needed to help provide a safe birth regardless of the facility.  Nearly half a million lives can be saved by providing clean birth conditions and skilled attendants.  In 2013 they launched TOMS Marketplace, a platform to help social entrepreneurs succeed.  If and when I expand CityGirlGoneMom, this is the exact platform I would want to pursue.  Who doesn’t want to improve the lives of others?  I know I certainly do.

Because this company moves me like no other company has, (trust me I am standing on my chair applauding) I am dedicating my Friday Faves to those that want to GIVE BACK.  I am highlighting some of my favorite TOMS items here on today’s post and any purchase you make will make a difference to those in need.  HAPPY SHOPPING & HAPPY HELPING! xoxo

Please note this company is helping so much more than just the few things I mentioned, like animal shelters, disadvantaged communities, scrubs for health care professionals in need and so much more.
