  6. 6.  Witnessed the poverty among villagers in Argentina Children cant attend school barefoot because shoes are a required part of their uniform. If they dont have shoes, they dont go to school. If they dont receive an education, they dont have the opportunity to realize their potential. A leading cause of disease in developing countries is soil-transmitted diseases, which can penetrate the skin through bare feet. Wearing shoes can help prevent these diseases, and the long-term physical and cognitive harm they cause.

  10. 10.  Success mantra- One for One! The cost of providing the shoes to children in need is built into the shoes’ sales price. The customer is thereby turned into the benefactor, enabling TOMS to become a sustainable organization based on giving back to the world on a continuous basis. In the process, TOMS is also able to turn a profit, support itself, make the world a better place, and educate consumers how they are helping children in need by providing them with a pair of shoes Day without shoe campaign
  11. 11.  Friends of TOMS, the company’s non-profit subsidiary, is responsible for organizing volunteer activities and all shoe drops Philanthropic Capitalism- company makes a profit but incorporates philanthropy into its business strategy Combination of education and health provides children the opportunity for a better tomorrow

  14. 14.  Nonprofits that depend largely on donations struggle to remain in operation during economic downturns By incorporating the nonprofit component into the business model, TOMS mitigates this risk donating money to children would be a one- time deal As long as people keep purchasing shoes, the nonprofit will remain sustainable
  15. 15.  Survey- Philanthropy is embedded within the business model are likely to attract the support of consumers who want to make a difference Collaboration with big brands Sold in retail stores in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Germany, and France.
