TOMS Unveils New Eyewear, Talks Charity with Ben Affleck

Posted on


Want to take a walk in Ben Affleck‘s shoes? The actor is the latest star to talk with TOMS, discussing the company’s original “One for One” structure — giving a person in need a pair of shoes each time a pair is purchased. In the clip above, Affleck discusses his own One for One wish: giving more help to the Eastern Congo Initiative, an advocacy group he founded. “My hope for a better tomorrow is that people hear about these issues and learn to care about them,” he says. He is also encouraging others to join the cause and share their hopes for a brighter future on the company’s Facebook page. TOMS is taking the next step in its own advocacy, too, today launching TOMS Eyewear. For every pair purchased, TOMS will help give someone the gift of sight through medical treatment, prescription eyeglasses or sight-saving surgery, administered by the Seva Foundation. The company will first target people in Nepal, Tibet and Cambodia. –Kim Peiffer
