One for One
Why work at TOMS? The answer is simple – to use business to improve lives. Whether you’re looking for meaning in your work or you want to help those in need, our promise to our employees is the ability to give back through their work. Working at TOMS will provide you with the opportunity to give back and thrive.
If you are not familiar with TOMS, our business philosophy is rooted in the concept of Giving. It all started in 2006 when 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, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. Realizing that One for One ® could serve other global needs, TOMS has since launched other products including eyewear, coffee, bags and backpacks. As always, with every product you purchase, TOMS will help a person in need while standing for issues that matter. One for One ®.
Since our founding, we have given over 86 million pairs of shoes to children in need; helped restore sight to more than 600,000 people; have helped give more than 600,000 weeks of safe water; supported safe birth services for more than 250,000 mothers, serve more than 145,000 youth through bullying prevention and response programs, and give over 100,000 people solar light for one year. We are giving in over 50 countries around the world through partnerships with more than 75 Giving Partners. Excited yet?
