It’s known that Toms gives a pair of shoes to a needy child for every pair of shoes they sell on their website but many people don’t know about Star Dog. I recently read about a New Jersey woman named Denise Ricciotti and her family who have decided to use the same idea as Toms except with new t-shirts to give to children of an orphanage in New Mexico and then to Eva’s Kitchen in Paterson and Kids in Disressed Situations based in NYC. The idea is that children in need appreciate new clothing just as much as the next kid and that if new clothing can be given to them to boost their spirits, why not!? I enjoyed reading this article and definitely plan on purchasing a Star Dog t-shirt in the future! Way to go, Ricciotti family! Your motivation to make a difference and create this organization is inspiring and reminds us that we all can do our part to make a change in the lives of others. Keep up the good work!
