Most celebrities partake in some form of philanthropy, and now it’s the Olsen twins’ turn. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen traveled to Honduras to do personal fittings and deliver shoes on behalf of TOMS footwear.
The actresses best remembered for their childhood portrayal of Michelle Tanner in “Full House” and video series “The Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley” and “You’re Invited to Mary-Kate and Ashley’s …” are collaborating with the footwear company whose mission is rooted in charity.
They have collaborated with the label to create a limited-edition shoe line called The Row, People magazine reports. And the twins rolled up their sleeves and flew to Tegucigalpa, Honduras to personally bring new shoes to needy kids at a school in the Central American nation.
Aside from delivering shoes, the girls visited classrooms and played soccer with the children. “Having the opportunity to be a part of something so meaningful has made the collaboration with TOMS special to everyone at The Row,” Mary-Kate told WWD.
Just like all TOMS shoes, for each pair of TOMS + The Row shoes sold, a second pair of shoes will go to a needy child.
From California to New York, college to rehab, and childhood to adulthood, the twins have come a long way since their “Full House” days. Take a look at the ever-changing pair through the years.
