Hollywood stars stepped out in support of Oceana at a bash with TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie at new West Hollywood hot spot Au Fudge last week to save sea turtles.
Myckosie was joined by his wife Heather, TOMS Animal Initiative Founder, and Oceana sea turtle ambassadors Kate Walsh and Angela Kinsey along with guests Josh Duhamel, Ali Fedotowsky, Elizabeth Chambers Hammer, Cassandra Jean and Holly Madison at Jessica Biel‘s fun new kid-friendly eatery on March 24.
The guests came to together to celebrate the recently released TOMS x Oceana collection. The limited edition line of footwear helps raise awareness for the ecological importance of sea turtles and supports Oceana’s work to protect them. For every pair of TOMS x Oceana Sea Turtle shoes purchased, TOMS will donate $5 to Oceana to help save marine life like sea turtles. As always, with every pair purchased TOMS will give a new pair of shoes to a child in need; Oceana is the largest international advocacy group working solely to protect the world’s oceans. Oceana wins policy victories for the oceans using science-based campaigns. Since 2001, they have protected over 1.2 million square miles of ocean and innumerable sea turtles, sharks, dolphins and other sea creatures.
Attendees brought along their kids for some under-the-sea themed arts, bites and family fun to celebrate the new Sea Turtle Collection. Children also had the opportunity to participate in a letter writing campaign to the White House, coloring drawings of sea turtles to help raise awareness for endangered and threatened sea turtles in U.S. waters.
What began as a simple idea has evolved into a powerful business model. Realizing that One for One could serve other basic needs, TOMS launched other products including TOMS Eyewear in 2011, TOMS Roasting Co. in 2014, and TOMS Bags and TOMS High Road Backpack Collection in 2015. In keeping with the One for One promise, purchases of these products help improve the lives of people in need by helping restore sight, providing safe water, supporting safe birthing practices, and aiding bullying prevention programs. TOMS is in business to improve lives. With every product you purchase, TOMS will help a person in need. One for One®.
