One of our focus issues at
The Purple Living Room Project
"Guns in America".
several people posted in
our facebook group
about the recent announcement by
TOMS founder, Blake Mycoskie,
that the company would donate
5 million dollars
to causes that are working to end gun violence.
TOMS also started a postcard-writing campaign called,
"End Gun Violence Together".
They developed a web tool that allows anyone who feels
that there should be universal background checks
to quickly send a postcard to Congress.
(You can learn more about it at www.toms.com.)
Over 500,000 cards have been sent already!
According to Mycoskie,
TOMS' customer base is roughly
half Republican and half Democrat.
TOMS is a business committed
to making positive social change
so it is trying to
take action on issues
that unite us all as citizens...
Here is a message from the TOMS website...
It's encouraging to see corporate America thinking purple.
Let's keep moving forward together!
"Meet in the Middle" is a Purple Living Room campaign encouraging people from across the political spectrum to meet together each week in order to find common ground. Each middle of the week (WEDNESDAY!) we'll post an update on Purple Living Room Project activities. Share YOUR progress on our Facebook group page or in the comments here. Our goal?
