Toms has released its 2019 impact report, providing a comprehensive overview illustrating the impact its customers’ purchases have made since its founding 13 years ago on its charitable premise of One for One. Since 2006, Toms has given more than 95 million pairs of shoes to children in need around the world.
The 80-page report highlights this milestone, along with the different processes through which the company creates impact and the story of how its giving model has evolved over the years. Adding other products to the mix, for example, has helped Toms broaden its impact. The brand’s eyewear sales have contributed to more than 780,000 sight restorations and established 37 sustainable vision centers. Toms Roasting Co. coffee sales have also provided over 722,000 weeks of safe water for those who lack access. Earlier this year, Toms also launched Stand for Tomorrow, officially expanding its giving model to include impact grants. Thus far, Toms has committed $6.5 million to organizations working to promote physical safety, mental health and access to equal opportunity.
“This report is a testament to everyone in the fiercely passionate Toms community,” states Amy Smith, chief giving officer. “I hope our customers are as excited and proud as we are to look back and see the incredible power of their purchases over the years and the impact they have had on so many lives.”
The report also includes information on Toms’ giving partners, employee giving trips and the company’s recent B Corp certification. Visit TOMS.com/impact-report to read the full impact report.
