I also like Toms shoes because it's comfortable to wear

Amanda Wall's curator insight, September 27, 2014 11:09 PM

Currently in class we are working on an assignment regarding for-profit and non-profit organizations. But what do you classify a for-profit company that successfully generates profit while also donating a pair of shoes for every one sold "one-for-one." I call it TOMS. 

 

This spring, TOMS gave away their 10 millionth pair of shoes. "Within the next 18 to 24 months," Blake Mycoskie, founder of TOMS says, "we expect we'll have given away 10 million more." TOMS has redefined the word "charity" with their strategic marketing and advertising plans.  However, there has been some discretion regarding them interfering with local businesses in the third-world countries they support. TOMS have been accused of taking away business from these locally owned companies. However, these local companies aren't supporting their own people regarding the issue at hand, in this case footwear. TOMS has found a smart solution for the footwear issue because unfortunately people in third-world countries can't support their own economy.
