Every student who takes a course with The Bicycle Academy will generate something towards a bike that will be sent to those in need – frame building classes will generate a frame, wheel building classes – will build the wheels, and mechanics classes will build up the bikes with components donated from partnering brands. You keep the skills and the bikes go to people who really need them.
TOMS is a great example of a company with a heart; a company that isn’t just trying to succeed at business but make a meaningful difference where it matters. With every pair of shoes purchased, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One.
Thanks to their customers, as of September 2010, TOMS had given over one million pairs of new shoes to children in need around the world. That’s huge.
But it doesn’t stop there, TOMS has been so successful that they’re now offering the same One For One with sunglasses, helping treat people with sight problems who otherwise wouldn’t receive treatment.
