Glamour & TOMS Partner for Fashion Gives Back!

December 8, 2011

For the past six years, Glamour has collaborated with fashion designers to create limited edition items to benefit charities through Glamour’s Fashion Gives Back initiative. This year, Glamour is teaming up with TOMS shoes to celebrate a group of top supermodels who are making a difference around the world. Glamour’s sixth annual Fashion Gives Back project is featured in the January 2012 issue and profiles Amber Valletta, Elettra Wiedemann, Kyleigh Kuhn, Liya Kebede and Tao Okamoto wearing the special edition TOMS, all photographed by Arthur Elgort.

TOMS shoes created three exclusive shoes for this year’s Fashion Gives Back, with a percentage of proceeds from the sale of each pair benefiting the models’ charities. In addition, TOMS and Glamour will each contribute $2.50 per sale, for a total of $5 per limited edition pair* of shoes purchased (*For a maximum amount up to 23,000 pairs), to benefit the five humanitarian organizations chosen by the models.

Plus, for each pair sold, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need as part of their One for One program. The models’ charities include:

  • Amber Valletta: Charity Water, a non-profit bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations.
  • Elettra Wiedemann: One Frickin Day motivates individuals to give either one day of their salary, one day of time, or one day service to specific projects around the world where the need is great, but the goals are achievable.
  • Kyleigh Kuhn: Roots Of Peace, a humanitarian organization dedicated to eradicating landmines worldwide and rehabilitating the land to make it productive once more.
  • Liya Kebede: Liya Kebede Foundation is saving the lives of mothers and children through access to maternal health care.
  • Tao Okamoto: Peace Winds, a Japenese Relief Fund dedicated to the support of people in distress, threatened by conflict, poverty or other turmoil.
