First there was their charitable collaboration with TOMS shoes. Now, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are taking their charity endeavors a step further by personally giving shoes from TOMS to needy children in Honduras.

According to People, the twins met with children in three communities outside of the capital of Tegucigalpa, where they were joined by volunteers to help fit shoes for children in need, who then received TOMS everyday walking shoes. In classic TOMS “shoe drop” tradition, the sisters physically put shoes on the children themselves. The designers also played soccer with the kids and visited classrooms.

Although Mary-Kate and Ashley haven’t overly publicized the collaboration, earlier this year Mary-Kate did say, “Having the opportunity to be a part of something so meaningful has made the collaboration with TOMS special to everyone at The Row.” 

The twins’ shoe line, TOMS + The Row, is available now. The shoes are made of wool, cashmere and leather, and retail for $140 – $150.
