Every Mother Counts is a nonprofit organization founded by global health advocate Christy Turlington Burns. The group is dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, regardless of origin, location, financial standing or life status.
With every bag or laptop case you purchase, TOMS will help provide safe birth for a mother and baby in need, One for One®. Additionally, with each purchase, $5 will go to support Every Mother Counts’ global advocacy efforts to improve the future of maternal health.

In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in a village in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need: One for One®.
Realizing that One for One could serve other global needs, Blake launched TOMS Eyewear in 2011 to help restore sight to persons in need with every purchase of sunglasses and optical frames.
In 2014, TOMS Roasting Co. launched with the mission to provide clean water to developing communities with the purchase of premium coffee.
To date, TOMS has given over 35 million new pairs of shoes, restored the sight of about 275,000 people and has provided over 67,000 weeks of safe water worldwide.
In the Philippines, TOMS products are available at TOMS Megamall, TOMS Mall of Asia, TOMS SM Aura, Adora at Greenbelt 5, Rustan’s Department Stores, and Nothing But H2O stores.
