One Day Without Shoes

Today I’m participating in One Day Without Shoes, in support of Toms Shoes’ mission to give free shoes to needy children and raise awareness about the perils of going barefoot in rural villages, where walking is the primary transportation.

Of course every day is (voluntarily) a day without shoes for me, since I work from home. And I’m horribly embarrassed at my little blisters I picked up on a recent hike. But that’s nothing compared to the dangerous cuts and infections that millions of children get as they walk miles to school or just to get food and water.

So kick off your shoes for a few minutes, a few hours or the whole day! Or at least learn more about this problem. Better yet–buy a pair of Toms! When you do, they’ll give another pair to a child in need.
