“Giving is what fuels us. Giving is our future.”
–Blake Mycoskie, Founder and Chief Shoe Giver TOMS

Having fun while helping others inspired several of us at HMC LA who were able to attend Steelcase’s holiday party, which was hosted at their Santa Monica showroom.

Steelcase, a company with an award winning corporate social responsibility program, used the “Style Your Sole” event to not only connect with their clients, but also to make a positive impact. The event was hosted in partnership with TOMS Shoes, where guests were invited to pre-order a pair of Tiny TOMS shoes to be decorated at the event, alongside their kids and a TOMS shoe design artist—yes, this job really exists and is as amazing as it sounds! Each pair was transformed into a one-of-a-kind, creative, and functional mini work of art.

As part of its One to One Movement, for every pair of shoes purchased, TOMS provides a matching pair of new shoes to a child in need. As of October 2011, TOMS had given away 2,000,000 pairs of shoes in 40 countries around the globe. The Steelcase party was an evening to remember and we want to thank and acknowledge Christi Snyder and her entire team at Steelcase for their hospitality and generosity.
