On Tuesday, Nov. 11, you can take the kids to the TOMS store & coffee shop on South Congress for a storytime event at 4:30 p.m. TOMS is starting a new Animal Initiative and kicking things off with book readings from the Babar series, cookies, and face paintings of your favorite animal! Kids of all ages are invited to this FREE event.


The TOMS Animal Initiative is a collaboration to support Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo and to help protect the flora and fauna of the park as well as the local communities that live near Virunga’s boundary. TOMS Animal Initiative shoes feature the gorilla logo. And as always, with every pair purchased, TOMS will give a pair of shoes to a child in need.
