Toms: Now giving the gift of sight Written by katie on December 20th, 2011


Toms is an amazing company that’s mission is simple: For every pair of Toms shoes you buy, they will give a pair to a person who does not have any. Recently Tom’s gave away their one millionth pair of shoes and at that landmark decided that they needed to expand their cause and to start helping the less fortunate of the world even more.

Over 165 million people in the world are visually impaired but can not afford glasses to fix their vision, and so it only seemed appropriate for Toms to go into the world of eye wear. The video is a great story about their first trip and tells a great story about their mission and what they plan to do to help restore people’s sight.

We also can’t forget to mention the amazing sunglasses that you’ll be able to purchase from US Outdoor here in the near future (we’re anticipating their arrival shortly). The sunnies that Toms has designed are great classic shapes and colors, are Italian made and have 100% UVA/UVB protection. Until we get them in check out the virtual try-on page that Toms has created and  prepare to fall in love with them… Plus you’ll buy them knowing you’re helping someone see again, which is always a wonderful feeling.
