Vegan-friendly shoe company TOMS\u00a0has always strived to do more, aligning its business with causes it is passionate about and working to create meaningful changes in the world. Its most recent endeavor sees the shoe brand working to help end gun violence in schools across the U.S. TOMS began with founder\u00a0Blake Mycoskie's dream. While traveling in Argentina,\u00a0Mycoskie saw countless children without shoes. The sight inspired him to launch TOMS, that for every pair of shoes sold, donates a pair to someone in need. To date, the brand has given 86 million children a pair of shoes. In a recent episode of NBC's "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," Mycoskie announced that TOMS is going a step further with its activism. TOMS donated $5 million\u00a0"to the most amazing organizations working hard on the ground every day to end gun violence"\u00a0in the single largest corporate gift to end gun violence in the nation. Groups that benefit from the donation include The Black and Brown Gun Violence Prevention Consortium, Everytown for Gun Safety, Faith in Action, Giffords: Courage to Fight Gun Violence, Live Free, March for Our Lives, and Moms Demand Action. Bustle reports that Mycoskie is working with student activist and National Student Walkout organizer, Winter Minissee, on the campaign. "I think totally, within my lifetime, I\u2019ve seen a shift in corporate social responsibility,"\u00a0she said,\u00a0"Before, lots of corporations and weren't necessarily standing up for issues that could be ... divisive, or had anything to do with politics. It was kind of a forbidden land." View this post on Instagram Let\u2019s #endgunviolencetogether - go to TOMS.com to send your representative a postcard demanding they take action on what more than 90% of Americans agree on: universal background checks. A post shared by TOMS (@toms) on Nov 19, 2018 at 8:04pm PST Not satisfied with its efforts, TOMS also launched a grassroots initiative that encourages people\u00a0to hold their representatives accountable\u00a0for creating a solution\u00a0to the\u00a0issue of\u00a0gun violence. It allows\u00a0users to send\u00a0a postcard calling for universal background checks for gun ownership to legislators. The background check law would require firearm transactions to be recorded and go through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, ensuring that guns are kept out of the hands of criminals and those who are not deemed fit to own them. "Ninety percent of Americans want background checks to keep us safe,"\u00a0Mycoskie said.\u00a0"If every single American makes an action like this, Congress will listen." The campaign is simple: TOMS has already created the postcards and individuals need only visit the TOMS website and enter their details. Notably, it allows younger people who are not yet allowed to vote to participate. But Minissee\u00a0added that change also starts with having tough conversations. "If you\u2019re a young person who's looking to get involved,"\u00a0Minissee\u00a0said,\u00a0"I would say, going into the holiday season, use your platform of your family and your friends to really talk about what\u2019s important to you and what you think needs to be done to get to a better tomorrow for everyone." Those who want to get involved and send a postcard to their representative can do so on the TOMS website. Become a\u00a0CLUBKINDLY\u00a0member today!
