TOMS for Target (and the #togethersweater) November 14 2014
The holidays are a great time to give back to people in need whether we partake in a clothing drive, volunteer at a soup kitchen or do something small to help a stranger. That's why we love the new TOMS for Target holiday line launching in stores this Sunday, November 16th. Not only do the pieces make great gifts, but donations will be made based on the purchase of an item in the collection.
"Every TOMS for Target apparel, accessory and home good purchase results in the donation of a blanket through the American Red Cross or Canadian Red Cross, or one week of meals through Feeding America or Food Banks Canada. And for every TOMS for Target pair of shoes sold, a pair will go to a child in need."
How awesome is that?!?
Additionally, as part of the promotion of this new line, Target created the #TogetherSweater. The TOMS themed "ugly Christmas sweater" has multiple holes so that you can wear the sweater with another person. There are also versions that can be worn by 4,6, 8 and 10 people. I know, we want one too! Unfortunately, the sweaters are not available for purchase, so let's make our own? Step 1: Teach Self to Sew....or just watch this video of people playing the Together Sweater game on Ellen until the emptiness of never owning a #togethersweater is filled.
If you're starting to work through your shopping list take a look at the TOMS for Target collection to check an item off your list and help someone in need!
