2nd Annual TOMS Day Helps Kids In Need

It’s Zappos’ Second Annual TOMS Day!

TOMS Day is a day dedicated to celebrating our partnership with TOMS. Zapponians had the chance to see what’s new, what’s coming and to find out everything they need to help customers purchase their first pair. TOMS’ director of social impact even stopped by to tell the story of the brand. TOMS is the One for One® company, meaning that for every one pair of shoes purchased, one pair is donated to a kid in need.

But TOMS Day isn’t just about knowing TOMS trivia; this is a celebration! Zapponians got to play memory games, giant Jenga, corn hole and even try out some virtual reality. Talented artists painted beautiful totes and Zapponians got to win them as prizes. But the most exciting part of TOMS Day was the notecards.

Zapponians got to write a few words on notecards that would be given to Save the Children (one of TOMS’ giving partners.) For every note written, TOMS and Zappos donated $20 to the organization. By the end of the day, the mailboxes were stuffed full of love with over $10,000 raised for Save the Children.

Zappos is thrilled to be partnering with TOMS, and we love having the chance to celebrate together!
