The Toms shoe company founded by Blake Mycoskie is launching a $5 million donation campaign to end gun violence in the U.S.

Mycoskie spoke on the impact that gun violence has on the nation and expressed how he was personally affected and moved to take action after the shootings.

The company will be reshaping its model, which currently donates a pair of shoes for every pair that is purchased, to include donations for organizations working to end gun violence.
