Ben Affleck is ALL about making the world a better place, so now that he's not living on $1.50 a day, his Eastern Congo Initiative is teaming up with TOMS!

Available in two styles for men and one for women, the limited edition shoe collection features colorful designs inspired by Congolese textiles.

And on top of TOMS' one for one promise, that is for every one pair bought, they'll donate a new pair of shoes to a child, $5 from every pair sold will go to the ECI.

Awesome!

Affleck encouraged everyone to do something, stating:

"Getting involved in something, helping others, improving the fabric of the universe – I believe if you do that, even just a little bit, I think you’ll find your life gets better, too."

Well said, Ben!

Ben Affleck is a charmingly handsome Golden Globe-nominated director who takes out the trash on Wednesdays and testifies on war-torn African nations in front of Congress in his free time!

Wowzers!! Sometimes we think Jennifer Garner landed the most perfectly flawless man in the entire universe!

…And then we remember Gigli.

Moving right along!

Mr. Smith Affleck went to Washington today to testify before the House Armed Services Committee about the security in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The Argo star/director founded the Eastern Congo Initiative to raise money for the struggling African nation, one of the ways in which they do that is to sell chocolate bars at Whole Foods!

A sexy, globally conscious chocolate salesman? He really is every gal's dream, LOLz!
