Purchase With A Purpose

Just a while ago, I went online and was browsing through TOMS website and I found out something interesting and which I think is very meaningful. I read that through our purchases, TOMS helps provide shoes, sight, water, safe birth and bullying prevention services to people in need.

In what ways does TOMS helps? 
With every TOMS' product we purchase through us online shopping, TOMS will help a person in need, one for one, e.g.
  • for each pair of shoes purchase = a pair of shoes for a child in need.
  • for each eye wear purchase = restored sight for a person in need.
  • each bag purchase = a safe birth for a mother and baby in need.
  • each TOMS Roasting Co. purchase = safe water to a person in need. 
This sounds good to me. I mean if I really wanted to purchase, then I might as well purchase with a purpose. With every product I purchase, I am helping to improve lives. TOMS employees are working with Giving Partners to reach and help those needy people which we cannot reach on our own. So if you are intending to buy from US TOMS products, do read on. 

Many online stores such as TOMS often give customers living within the USA special treatment and discounts. But thanks to the package forwarding service for TOMS offered by USGoBuy, international shoppers can now fully enjoy the great products offered by this store and save money at the same time. 

A tax-free US address that shoppers can use for TOMS USA shopping will be provided once they register online with USGoBuy. Shoppers can place their orders with TOMS using the US address. Once their items arrive at the US address, they will receive a notification for them to arrange for their order to be sent to them directly by giving USGoBuy their international address.

TOMS offers regular discounts on their website, such as free shipping on orders of $25 or more. In addition shoppers can find great deals on TOMS by using online coupons that can easily be found by a simple search on Google.

TOMS features a wide variety of shoes and eye wear for men, women and children. TOMS even offers coffee from different regions of the world and range of roasts. TOMS is a company with a mission and with a "One for one" philosophy. This means that for each pair of shoes or glasses shoppers purchase, the company supplies a new pair for a child in need throughout the world. Shoppers can shop TOMS while making a difference to the lives of someone they don't know!


  1. I don't shop online except I have purchased some books from Amazon a few times. I prefer to see and touch what I buy, making me an old fashioned kind of shopper. I don't always trust the facade these companies hide behind, even the popular charities can't always be trusted now a day because there's so much corruption going on unknown to the general public. Evil can masquerade as good.
    One should always be cautious...

    1. Thank you, Julia. What you have said is quite true. We have to be careful about charitable funds and who and where to give. In this case, we are not giving anything extra apart from what we are buying.

  2. I don't shop online, either, although I have ordered a few books from a paper catalogue that I receive. I live in Montreal, Canada, and the books I order come from Ontario, which is the next province, beside Quebec. :)

  3. I don't shop online, but it really does sound good, a great way to help.

    1. Thank you, Mamas. Yes, it does sound good. We are not obligated to buy but if we do buy, then it helps in a way. Have a great Wednesday!
