Toms will be donating one-third of net profits to the COVID-19 Global Giving Fund, created to support long-time Giving Partners currently on the front lines of the health crisis. As of Apr. 1, every Toms purchase will directly support Giving Partners that are responding to COVID-19, both in the United States and abroad. For every $3 Toms makes, the company will donate $1 to the COVID-19 Global Giving Fund.
“Toms has always been in business to improve lives. That mission is important to us and our community everyday,” states Amy Smith, Chief Giving Officer for Toms. “Now, more than ever, we are honored to apply what we have learned over the past 14 years of giving to address this global health crisis. We know the best way to help is to use our resources and the power of our customers’ purchase to invest in our giving partners who are on the front lines directly addressing this pandemic. We are grateful for these deep partnerships and are eager, together with our customers, to continue to support their efforts to combat COVID-19.”
The 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, hand washing and medical supplies.
