Charlize Theron Teams with Toms Shoes for South Africa's Kids

Charlize Theron is giving back to kids in her native country of South Africa!

Collaborating with Toms Shoes, Charlize, 34, is introducing a line of slip-on sneakers to benefit her nonprofit, the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project.

10,000 pairs of the vegan-friendly shoes will be distributed to kids in South Africa, and you can buy a pair to support the cause at!

“I’m thrilled to have TOMS Shoes as a partner. We are so grateful for their generous donation of shoes to the students we work with,” Charlize said (via People).

“It’s exciting that we’re able to come together in such a cool and creative way to bring attention to the needs of many South African youth.”

I love my Tom’s! I got a pair about a year ago from a event my church was doing on giving. It’s been really cool to see the Tom’s outreach grow so much of the last year.

If only everything was vegan friendly!
I wish there was a town where they banned all animal foods & products.
Same w/ green energy.
Gotta start somewhere.

I love Tom’s BUT can they please make them cheaper? 40-60-70 bucks??? seriously? the shoes are modestly made so why not make them cheaper?

ava, she was born rich and is rich now. by definition not white trash. on top of that, she has more class imbedded in her than you have in your whole pinky.

ava’s just a jealous *****. She may have played Trailer trash well in Monster. But she exudes sexiness while being classy at the same time somehow. She does it while being down to earth and playful and not stuck up like a Gwyneth Paltrow too. Not many actresses can do that. Oh and she looks great with long hair. She’s always been involved in charities too. She’s the real deal. She comes from South Africa after all. Makes sense to give back there.

Ntaive of South Africa, my as$…
At least she’s trying to undo the damage…

She is so BEAUTIFUL. Seriously.

I helped her today in my store ( and met her boyfriend Stewart Townsend today also).

she is a really cool and easy going person.

I wanted to tell her that I loved Monster and Aeon flux bu ti had to remain professional.

Charlize rocks….period!

she is technically African American, but i wonder if she’d be classified as such

She is so pretty. I hope she gets married soon

Are you sure she’s not a boy?????
