Brand loyalty is something very important to me. When I find a brand I love, I immerse myself in them. I learn all about them and turn to them first whenever I am looking for something I need. Earlier this year, I was introduced to TOMS footwear. Originally, I was drawn towards them for their stylish looks and ability to dress up or down an outfit. I loved how my children took to their TOMS right away and began to wear them every day. It was only when I began to write a post for TOMS that I totally got appreciation of their company, their motto and their purpose. When I found out that TOMS was pairing up with one of my favourite department stores, TARGET to form the Target+TOMS collection, I knew good things were about to happen!
Help support those in need this holiday season! Starting November 16th, Target+TOMS will release a brand new home decor and clothing line of limited edition gifts that will give back to those in need. The collection features over 50 items for Men, Women and children that are trendy, down to earth and naturally crafted products. You can view the entire collection Target collection here.
These products will be available at all Target stores in both the USA & Canada and also online at Target. There isn’t a single item in this entire collection that I wouldn’t be proud of gift this holiday season. My children each have a pair of the TOMs slip on shoes and I have been wishfully dreaming of owning a pair of my own, the picture frames would be perfect for my sister’s new baby and the candle would make a great gift for a close co-worker. I love that for each item you buy, you are told directly how you will be helping a person in need For instance, if you buy a throw, TOMS+Target will donate 1 blanket to a person in need, the journal set, gives one week of meals to family in need.
How it works
TOMS began in 2006 when an American traveler named Blake Mycoskie was visiting an Argentinian village. He became friends with a few children in the village and realized they wore no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, Blake was inspired to create the company, TOMS, whereby he matches every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One.
The Target and TOMS line takes it one step further! When you purchase a TOMS product from a Canadian Target Store between November 16, 2014 through March 12, 2014, TOMS and Target will give back to Canadian Charities such as the Canadian Red Cross and Food Banks Canada. Each TOMS purchase you make, with either provide a blanket, a weeks worth of meals or a pair of shoes for a Canadian in need.
This holiday season, share the gift of beautiful products while helping to give back in your own community. TOMS + Target is a Win-Win!
To celebrate the release of the new Target+TOMS collection, Target Canada is giving away a #TOMSforTarget prize pack worth $150!
