The TOMS company, known for its one-for-one philanthropy business model, extends the range of products that benefit both a direct consumer and a person in some poorer region.
With TOMS Marketplace running on toms.com, the brand drives its philanthropic commitment further by sharing its e-commerce platform with more social entrepreneurs.
TOMS, a brand known for its philanthropy that found incarnation in the One for One policy, is launching an art-focused project Haiti Artists Collective to create new jobs in Haiti. In partnership with Haiti-based Caribbean Craft, the company commissions 30 Haitian artists aged 18-45 to develop designs for the limited edition TOMS Shoes. The individually painted footwear in both men and women styles will be available at the TOMS website and at its flagship store in the U.S. for $68.
