Help Save Big Cats with TOMS New Collection

Help Save Big Cats with TOMS New Collection

My family and I are avid big cat lovers from our subscription to National Geographic for kids, endless books, and watching them on TV. And when we want to see them in person we visit our local zoo where we have been members for many years.

The Columbus Zoo & Aquarium is the home of Jack Hannah where he is the Director Emeritus.  They just built a new 43-acre area called Heart of Africa for the Big Cats and other animals. You actually feel like you are in the Heart of Africa from with the sights and sounds of the Mudiwa Village as you walk the pathway. In this exhibit they have the African Lion, Cheetah and other animals that get to run free as if they are in the wild. It is one exhibit we can never miss when we visit and interesting to learn facts about the animals from the zoo keepers.


Sadly, the big cats are rapidly facing extinction. TOMS Shoes have partnered with National Geographic Kids to help save lions, tigers, cheetahs, leopards, and other big cats in the wild. Even those these are the fiercest felines they are also beautiful and stunning. Unfortunately, they are in danger from human conflict with just 3,000 tigers, 10,000 cheetahs, and 30,000 lions remaining in the wild.

We can help support saving the big cats with the TOMS Big Cats Collection which includes a special-edition line of shoes, sunglasses, and a backpack inspired by the Big Cats Initiative. Wearing this special collection will draw attention to the critical need to protect these majestic creatures for generations to come. Together we can make a difference!

I am showing my support by wearing the gorgeous Tom’s National Geographic Women’s Jaguar Classics shoes. They feature a jaguar-inspired pattern and paw print with jaguar images on the lining. I can seriously live in TOMS all day, everyday as they are so comfortable and easy to slip on an off. And did you know that with every pair of shoes you purchase, TOMS will give a new pair of shoes to a child in need. So not only are you supporting saving the Big Cats but also helping a child in need. It’s a win, win situation!
