ONE DAY WITHOUT SHOES

Speaking of shoes... today I'm not wearing them- and neither should you!

As you can probably tell, I am a BIG fan of TOMS Shoes- their styles, their mission... everything. (That Blake Mycoskie's not too bad either- yum). If you don't know much about the company, here it is in a nutshell. TOMS stands for "Shoes for Tomorrow". They create and sell these super-simple, undeniably comfortable shoes and for every pair someone purchases, they donate a pair to a child in need. "Shoe Drops", when the TOMS team brings shoes to the communities, happen all over the world. Who knew shopping could be so rewarding, right?

ONE DAY WITHOUT SHOES is an annual event (this year, April 5th- TODAY!) where people voluntarily go barefoot to raise awareness of the huge percentage of children all over the world who can't afford to protect their feet. People everywhere participate and spread the message- you can do it too! I'm not looking forward to using the public bathroom today, but I guess that's just part of the lesson...
