Do-gooder Ben Affleck is at it again!

Just last month the Oscar-winning star lived on a $1.50 a day to raise help raise funds for the Live Below the Line campaign, and now he's hawking shoes to benefit his Eastern Congo Initiative.

That's right, Affleck, who founded ECI in order to help communities in the Congo, has collaborated with Toms shoes to create a limited-edition collection of kicks made from colorful Congolese textiles.

For every pair of shoes purchased from the limited edition collection, the philanthropic partners will donate $5 towards ECI programs, as well as pair of shoes to a child in need.

And while giving towards a good cause is always in style, the eye-catching textiles also so happen to fit perfectly with the of-the-moment global chic trend
