Do Gooders

This week Megan has sent me two great stories about companies on a mission. One is Tom's Shoes. Not only are the shoes super cute. You can purchase them and feel great about yourself. I think I am going to get the ones above. Here is the story:
One for One
TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: For every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of shoes to a child in need. One for One. Using the purchasing power of individuals to benefit the greater good is what we're all about.
There is also other great info on the site. But, I will keep the suspense alive for you.
Megan also sent me an email today from Crate & Barrel where they sent her a $25 gift card. Only it wasn't to be redeemed at C&B, it was to be redeemed at I have never heard of the site but it is great. Schools in need can list what they need donations for and generous donators get to contribute to causes close to their heart. Now, as I am on about every single retail email distribution known to man, I have no idea why I didn't get this myself. But, I will live vicariously through Megan, as the code can only be used once ; ). She gave to an inner city school in Philly. What a cool idea and a great feel-good factor!


  1. I love the Tom's shoe commercial and I definitely want to buy a pair of shoes after hearing the story! Thanks for sharing Kate!

  2. I received my Tom's in the mail this week (their shipping is very fast!). They are super cute and comfortable! Not only that but I feel great that a child in need now has a pair becuase of my purchase.
    As for Crate and Barrel, they sent me the gift card after I made a purchase so I did not receive it out of the blue but again it made me feel good about my purchase :-) If everyone had programs like this I would be broke!

  3. Hi... we can be matching. Jared's mom bought me those Tom's and I love them. I want a pair in every color. Andrea
