About GlobalGiving

All donations go through the GlobalGiving Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 organization, which receives a nominal 15% fee. This helps cover the cost of operating the marketplace – finding and researching projects, supporting project leaders in the field, attracting donors, and building our website. It also includes the fees assessed by vendors for credit card processing. Donors can choose whether to make an incremental contribution to cover the fee, or to have it deducted from their donation.

We also provide businesses and other organizations with custom giving services and help them with their specific giving needs. Some of our corporate partners include eBay, Ford, the Gap, HP, Nike, and Yahoo!

When you work with GlobalGiving.com, we help you raise money to cover the costs of specific projects your organization is working on. You may be building a school or providing medical services to women or doing any number of activities. On GlobalGiving.org, donors do not donate to your organization in general, but donate money that must be dedicated to covering the costs of a specific project, not overhead and administration of your organization in general.

Celebrities in Toms Shoes doing good while shopping

Celebrities like Keira Knightly, Sophia Bush, Scarlett Johannson, Kristen Stewart, and more are all wearing shoes that give back. This is the season to remember how fortunate we are and to give to those in need. What better way to help a great cause than to buy comfy, functional, cool shoes.

For every pair purchased, TOMS will give a pair of shoes to a child in need. One for One. Click here to shop TOMSshoes.com.


The TOMS Mission: “To make life more comfortable.” TOMS shoes accomplish this through its unique shoe design and our commitment to help those in need.

For every pair you purchase, TOMS Shoes will give a pair to a child in need.

So far… TOMS has given 10,000 pairs of shoes to less-fortunate children in Argentina and the TOMS team headed to Africa in 2007 and hand-delivered an estimated 50,000 pairs of TOMS shoes.

The idea of TOMS Shoes came about in 2006 when founder, Blake Mycoskie befriended the children of an Argentine village and found that they had no shoes to protect their feet. Seeing their cuts and sores and wanting to help them, he imagined a company that would match every pair of shoes sold with a pair given to a child in need. Upon his return, he launched TOMS Shoes: “Shoes for Tomorrow”.

TOMS’ weightless slip-on sneakers are modeled after a traditional Argentinean shoe, and in their own grassroots way, changing the world on pair at a time. TOMS shoes use fresh and interesting color and material combinations with leather footbeds for breathability.

The distinctive style of TOMS shoes are always fresh and inventive, so you won’t only feel good about helping the cause, you’ll be sporting the look that’s causing a major buzz with fashion editors and trend-setters everywhere.
