One for One

The philanthropic company TOMS is now onto creating more than just their signature shoes, they are now delivering some stylish sunglasses. The One for One™ brand’s founder Blake Mycoskie launched this news in Santa Monica just yesterday. And like TOMS shoes, for every pair of sunglasses you buy, you help somebody in need, whether it be prescription eyeglasses or eye surgery. And if you think they’re like any other sunglasses, take a further look. Made in Italy with hand-painted stripes, each of the three stripes symbolizes something important–the purchaser, the person in need and TOMS. TOMS Eyewear is available on its website as well as Nordstrom and other select retailers.
