Showing support for the Malala Fund

Showing support for the Malala Fund

I have three pairs of TOMS wedge shoes in my wardrobe; they are, in fashion blogger parlance, quite the “workhorse” of footwear in terms of their comfort, style and ability to carry me as many miles as my Fitbit can manage.

What I also like about TOMS, the company,  is their support for global communities, through their philanthropic model of donating one pair of shoes to a child in need for each pair purchased – this is their famous One for One™ programme.

The scarf carries a quotation from Malala and features a beautiful pattern inspired by traditional Islamic artistry and prints. Malala Fund TOMS scarf

“One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.” 

100% of the purchase price goes to the fund – what a wonderful idea. I would love to think of people buying the scarf and then wearing it to start a conversation about Malala and her work,  particularly on each Malala Day (12 July).
