Why work for TOMS? We are more than a company, we are a Movement. At TOMS we take our mission of “Improving lives through business” very seriously and we hope you will too.
If you are not familiar with TOMS, our business philosophy is rooted in the concept of Giving. With every product our customer purchases, TOMS helps a person in need. One for One® It all started in 2006 when 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, 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, Blake launched TOMS Eyewear in 2011 to help restore sight to people in need with every purchase of sunglasses and optical frames. In 2014, TOMS Roasting Co. launched with the mission to provide safe water to developing communities with the purchase of coffee. In 2015, TOMS Bags were introduced with the gift of safe birth kits and training for skilled birth attendants with every purchase, as well as the TOMS Highroad Backpack Collection where with every purchase TOMS helps stop bullying, one youth at a time.
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?
