Tom’s One for One Program

TOMS has given more than 45 MILLION PAIRS of NEW SHOES TO CHILDREN IN NEED. ONE FOR ONE.®  Tom’s is about Improving Lives. For every pair of Tom’s shoes purchased, Tom’s donates one pair of shoes to a person in  need. One for One.

Come Paint & Play with Us!

Upon arrival your facilitator will divide your group into teams, unless they are predetermined. A brief introduction will include the story behind Tom’s shoes outlining their strong involvement in programs to improve health, access to education, and confidence building. Your program facilitator will then proceed with a demonstration on how to creatively paint Tom’s shoes. Next, rules of the program will be outlined and then your teams will be off and painting! Your teams will engage in trivia contests, team challenges, and asked to design creative marketing campaigns, all to earn points that will buy them extra art supplies in the TeamBonding store. Each team will send along a heart-felt note with words of support and encouragement. At wrap up, each team will present their painted shoes and packaging in front of the  judges and a winning team will be declared! However, ALL teams are winners and especially the gift receivers.

Your Donation

It’s important to know that even before the shoes that you have decorated are donated, you are already responsible for the donation of one pair of Tom’s shoes to a child in need.

Once your decorated shoes have had a chance to dry they will be placed back in their original packaging. TeamBonding will have arranged for a local charity to accept the shoes and they will be delivered promptly, or we can donate to the charity of your choice.

Upon arrival your team will head downstairs to Elephant & Castle’s private event space.

Cheese platters will be placed on tables upon arrival.

Please inquire if your group would like to purchase additional food onsite.
