TOMS Shoes

TOMS is introducing their first collaboration with Ben
Affleck’s Eastern Congo Initiative (ECI), a meaning partnership that includes a
limited edition collection of shoes.

With two designs for men and one for women, the shoes
feature designs inspired by Congolese textiles and $5 dollars from every pair
sold will go to the ECI’s fund to help youth and families in the Congo region
as well as a new pair of shoes will go to a child in need (TOMS ongoing “One
for One” campaign).

The Hollywood actor is the founder of the Eastern Congo
Initiative (ECI), the first U.S based advocacy and grant making initiative
whose purpose is to work with and for the people of eastern Congo.

Affleck said about the collaboration: “Getting involved in
something, helping others, improving the fabric of the universe-I believe if
you do that, even just a little bit, I think you’ll find your life gets better
too”.
