‘Tis certainly the season for giving. But we’re in the mood to give a little more, which is why we enlisted the help of our guest editor, TOMS’ Heather Mycoskie. She found 13 gifts your loved ones will absolutely adore. But these presents go beyond making one person happy — they help others as well. Spend well and spread some cheer this season.
Heather Mycoskie, wife to Blake Mycoskie of TOMS, is a passionate advocate for animal rights. As TOMS Chief Animal Lover, Heather oversees the TOMS Animal Initiative program, which partners with animal-focused organizations to raise money and awareness for specific endangered species. Additionally, for each pair of shoes purchased, a pair is also given to a person in need – One for One. The first TOMS Animal Initiative collection was created to raise Awareness for the mountain gorillas of Virunga National Park, and the second collaboration was just launched in partnership with The Clinton Foundation and Wildlife Conservation Society to protect African Elephants.
Heather, who was born and raised in Salt Lake City, is a former FORD model and graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology with a degree in Advertising and Marketing Communications. When she's not busy traveling around the world, she can be found at home with her Golden Doodles, Buddha and Gypsy, and rescued Golden Retriever, Canyon.
| The holidays should really be about being thankful for what you have and giving back in whatever ways you can.
