After a compelling trip to Argentina during his stint on The Amazing Race, Blake Mycoskie was inspired to develop a shoe company with a simple initiative: for every pair of shoes sold, a new pair would be donated to a child in need. Little did he know that his charitable start-up, TOM Shoes, would spark a full-fledged movement that would single-handedly unite fashion and philanthropy. Now, Mycoskie is taking his patented One for One concept one step further by producing more than just footwear – and he’s starting with eyewear.
TOMS Eyewear comes in a range of styles, with wayfarer or aviator frame options. Not sure what pair fits your style? Try them on virtually. At $135-$145 a pop, your purchase will help the disadvantaged in one of three ways: Medical treatment (like prescription medications), prescriptive eyeglasses, or sight-saving surgery (to treat conditions such as cataract, which is the leading cause of blindness in the world).
