Headed to the TOMS event in 2nd's High Street awhile ago with Melai after yet another Bloggers United meeting...
DIY black shiny cover-up
Oxygen white tank with black splats
Rubi black leopard bag
Wore my shining shimmering gold Toms for the event!
My DIY cover-up. Top sya talaga na ginupit ko sa gitna kasi fitted hehehe, at least mas usable siya as cover-up! :) Sparkling pa! (Hehe, arte)
Sa registration table palang, saw the cute TOMS on display! Love ni Melai yun may skulls! :) Would love to own a yellow pair! :D
My dear friend Jules Veloso of Geisler welcomed us to the event at the registration area! :)
Batch by batch, we were led inside a function room for a presentation of the TOMS brand and their new collection..
I love the heartfelt videos. Nahiya pako na nateatearyeyed ako especially when they washed the kids' feet and slipped on a pair of nice comfortable shoes. The smiles on the children's faces = Priceless.
Later on learned that Sarah and Tracy were also touched by the beautiful videos. :) Wish ko talaga na maging ganyan din small business ko in the future. Really inspiring.
Which is why I love TOMS:
About TOMS Shoes:
In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in a village in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One. To date, TOMS has given over one million pairs of new shoes to children through giving partners around the world.
TOMS currently gives to 24 countries: US, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Haiti, Honduras, Peru, Argentina, Mali, Niger, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Zambia, Swaziland, Lesotho, Ethiopia, South Africa, Malawi, Armenia, Mongolia, China, Cambodia, and Philippines! :)
They already distributed TOMS shoes in Bacolod and Smokey Mountain:
I hope I can help in the distribution in the future. :) That would be a great experience!
Also learned about the TOMS Give Fair this December 4 in Trinoma!
Enjoy a day of craft,games, treats, music, and the latest Holiday Styles at the very first TOMS Pop-up Store! Finally! Soooo exciting!
There is no guilt-feeling when you buy a pair of TOMS. I really really love the concept!
An interesting trivia: THEY DONT GIVE GLITTER OR WEDGES TO CHILDREN
''Promise. Not to say they wouldn't like them, but the shoes hand-placed on children's feet are specially designed for their terrain and environment.''
THERE IS NO TOM! :D
''Our founder's name is Blake. TOMS is actually an abbreviation for "Shoes for a Better Tomorrow", but we couldn't get that on the back of a shoe, so we shortened it to TOMS.''
Currently, 2 million pairs of shoes were already distributed around the world.
After the program, we checked out the different TOMS Holiday 2011 Collection on display....
Now more than shoes...
Still One for One...
TOMS releases their sunglasses line...
In Jackie O:
I love the side stripes deets <3 Classic TOMS trademark nga naman!
I love the Jackie Os! :D
TOMS Holiday 2011 Collection focuses whole‐heartedly on the significance of the human connection that results from the act of giving. Giving naturally creates an indescribable feeling that connects the giver with the receiver. This feeling is magnified when combined with the joy of the holiday season.
