Sunnies For Sight

Style Shout Out to TOMS for giving back in a big way and making a difference every day!

TOMS at Nordstrom
Most of you are probably familiar with TOMS.  The company started with a shoe and a dream.  Their vision was to be able to put shoes on the feet of children in need.  The company business model is built on one very simple, yet very powerful premise...for every pair of shoes that are purchased, one pair is given to a child in need.  It is so refreshing to see a company that not only gets involved in the charitable process but has made giving back the foundation on which their entire company is built.

The one-for-one legacy and the vision now continues with the introduction of TOMS new line of classic-inspired sunglasses that are made in Italy.  For every pair of sunglasses purchased TOMS will give sight to a person in need in the form of prescription eyeglasses, sight-saving surgery, or medical treatment.  How can you not admire a company that is working so hard to help others?

So my daughter and I are planning to visit our local Nordstrom this week  to check out these new sunglasses. And I am hoping to find a pair that will look fabulous because every time I go to put them on and see the little white stripe on the arm of these shades I will be reminded that my purchase helped to give someone the gift of sight.

My Style Shout Out Tip:  If you are looking for a new pair of sunglasses for Summer check out TOMS and do some good while looking good!
