Target + TOMS

Target TOMS

This morning I woke up with thoughts of how to give back for the holidays. I always wonder “How can I create an impact?”. I always feel like I am a teardrop in the ocean and try to come up with ways where I can make a wave. In the end, I believe that it’s not about how much you give, but that you give. People aren’t always in the position to give thousands or even hundreds of dollars, but every little bit helps….even your time.

This morning I came across an email from Target and saw that they are working with one of the bigger corporations geared towards giving back…TOMS. Here is how it works:

For each item purchased from TOMS x Target collection from 11.16.2014 – 03.12.2015 in US Target stores and, one of the following will be donated or given: (I) by Target: $3 (the monetary equivalent of one week of meals for someone in need; $1 = 9 meals secured by Feeding America® on behalf of local food banks) to; or $5 (the monetary equivalent of one blanket) to American Red Cross Disaster Relief; or (II) by TOMS: TOMS will give one pair of new shoes (which may differ in value from the shoes purchased) to a child in need. See product packaging for details of which donation or giving will occur with purchase. Donations are not tax deductible for guests. The Target and TOMS programs/donations/giving are being administered independently. Each party is solely responsible for its program/donations/giving.
