Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen: TOMS Honduras Shoe Drop

Posted Wednesday August 31, 2011 7:59 PM GMT

Taking their partnership one step further, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen traveled to Tegucigalpa, Honduras alongside TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie earlier this summer to deliver shoes to children in need.

The talented fashionistas, along with a group of other charitable pals, visited the area where they toured classrooms, spent time with community members and, most importantly, bestowed much-needed footwear to the schoolkids.

Documenting the touching event, Mary-Kate and Ashley filmed their experience, of which Ashley told, "We're very aware of Blake's work and what he was doing and trying to accomplish and it's something, obviously, we wanted to be a part of. The children are so special and kind and loving and welcoming...they're just incredible!"

Her twin sister added, "It's really taught me a little bit more about myself and how I can be more affectionate and loving and how putting a smile on a kid's face is, well...there's nothing like it!"

The Olsen's trip comes as a result of their label The Row's limited-edition collaboration with TOMS, where for each TOMS + The Row shoe is sold, a well-deserving child in need receives a pair of shoes.
