TOMS for Target collection

Giving back with your gift list

If you can believe it, the holiday season is already upon us!  That means it’s time for me to start making my Christmas list and checking it twice.  While I love receiving gifts, it’s important to remember those less fortunate during this chilly time of year.  Many in our community struggle just for the basic necessities and making ends meet is the only thing on their minds.

The holiday season is an ideal time to lead by example and teach charity to those around you – especially the children in your life.  We all know kids focus on what to ask Santa for, but it’s important to teach them about sharing with others.  TOMS is a great way to show kids how to care and share.  With TOMS’ ‘one for one’ program, TOMS donates a new pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair purchased.  Starting November 16th, with the TOMS for Target collection you can find a gift that not only will please the loved ones on your list but will also bring joy to someone less fortunate.  With every gift you purchase, they will give a blanket from the Red Cross, one week of meals from Feeding America, and one pair of TOMS to someone in need.  It’s the perfect opportunity to give back and take care of your holiday gift list!
