The brand is, perhaps, best known for providing new shoes to children across the world. How do they do this? TOMS follows a One for One® business model. This means that, for every product purchased, a person in need is helped in some way. TOMS partners with humanitarian organizations from around the globe, which they call their Giving Partners. These Giving Partners have experience and expertise with helping others in different regions of the world and they become the link between TOMS and the people they seek to help. So far, TOMS has joined forces with over 100 Giving Partners in over 70 Countries.
