Lose Your Shoes For a Good Cause!
Today, April 5th, is Barefoot Day! This day was started by none other than Toms Shoes (also known as One Day Without Shoes) to help build awareness for children throughout the world who go without shoes everyday. In case you have no clue what Toms shoes is or does, they are a shoe company with a profound mission: you buy a pair of their shoes, they donate a pair to child in need. Their One For One program has since provided over 600,000 pairs of new shoes to children in need in over 20 countries, including here in America, doing 'shoe drops' year round with volunteers.
Their philosophy for going barefoot for a day is that it leads to conversation, which leads to awareness, then to action and ultimately to change. We firmly support their vision to provide one of the most basic amenities to children who need it; it's the responsibility of the entire world to make sure all children are taken care of, so do your part today by visiting their website www.onedaywithoutshoes.com. The saying goes that if you want to know what it's like to be someone else, walk in their shoes for a day, but in the case of many children in impoverished situations, going without shoes for a day is the only way to know what it's like.
