Birthday Celebration

Last night, we hosted an awesome launch party at The Viceroy in Santa Monica to announce that TOMS will now be carried in the hip west-side hotel. Conveniently, its just about my birthday time, too (next week!), so together with my TOMS family, friends old and new, artists, The Viceroy crew and everyone's awesome guests, we celebrated. We celebrated all night long and it was absolutely amazing to have such a great crowd come out to support TOMS and wish me happy birthday. Endless thanks to the TOMS team (Jill, Garett, Katie, and Megan- amazing!!) for envisioning such a stellar event and making it perfect down to all the last details, The Viceroy staff for being wonderful hosts, Karma Tequila for quenching our thirst, our artists who came out to custom paint TOMS all night long: Cheech, Man One, Theo Hetherington, and Brooke Reidt, A Fine Frenzy and DJs Oil & Vinegar for pumping the perfect music, and every single guest for hanging out, having fun, and meeting all the wonderful people I'm lucky to be surrounded by.

Cheers to 33!

Hi Blake,
I go to a small private school in New Jersey and am the managing editor of my school paper. I am a huge fan of yours and so are many of the students in my school. I would be honored if you gave me the chance to conduct a short interview with you for the paper. We're small staffed and have built the paper up from nothing. We really want to make the upcoming issues incredible in order to show off all the hard work we've done. If you could email me back about possibly letting me interview you for the front page of our paper, that would be amazing. What you have done for the people around the world is inspiring, and I would like my entire school and everyone else who reads our paper to become inspired as well.
Thank you for reading this.
Managing Editor

I'd like to know where you got the name TOMS and what it stands for?
