Travel & Lifestyle | TOMS and Charlize Theron unite to change the world

By now it comes as no surprise that we love not only the fashionable addition of TOMS to our lives, but also the actual change that they are making in the world behind the scenes. It’s why when I found out about the collaboration between TOMS and Charlize Theron’s Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Program (CTAOP), I knew it was something that every Canadian needed to know about and be a part of.

With every TOMS + CTAOP limited edition women’s shoe purchased (now available for Canadians at, TOMS will donate $5 to CTAOP that will support programs working to help African youth keep themselves safe from HIV/AIDS. As always, with every product purchased, TOMS will help a person in need. With every pair of shoes purchased, TOMS will give a new pair of shoes to a child in need. 

“We can be the generation that ends AIDS,” said Theron.

Sometimes, it is the smallest action that can make the biggest difference in the world. I can’t wait to get a pair for Catherine and help to give to a cause that means so much to me alongside TOMS.
