We love Toms Shoes. Really. In 2006 Blake Mycoskie founded the shoe company using a new approach: “Buy one, give one”, for every pair of shoes the company sold, a new pair would be given to a child in need. Part shoe business, part philanthropy. Since then, nearly 100 million pairs of shoes have been given to people in need.
On April 8, Toms Shoes announced on Twitter: ‘For every $3 we make, we’ll donate $1 to the COVID-19 Global Giving Fund‘:
For every $3 we make, we’re donating $1 to the TOMS COVID-19 Global Giving Fund — created to support long-time Giving Partners on the frontlines of COVID-19: @americares, @crisistextline, @IMC_worldwide, @PIH, @wateraidamerica. // Learn more: https://t.co/3XuFi8m8SG pic.twitter.com/FTznvCkjJZ

We can read on Toms Shoes’ website: As of April 1st, we’re donating one third of our net profits to the Global Giving Fund created to support long-time Giving Partners on the frontlines of the COVID-19 health crisis.
More details: TOMS COVID-19 Global Giving Fund currently supports Americares, Crisis Text Line, International Medical Corps, Partners In Health and WaterAid. Together, these organizations are working to combat the negative effects of COVID-19 through mental health support, handwashing, and medical supplies.
