One Day Without Shoes.

I certainly cannot imagine a life without shoes. And I’m not talking about my favorite wedges or stilettos.  

I’m talking about a life without SHOES.

Walking barefoot. 


Being prone to disease and at higher risk of infection (which they cannot afford to prevent or treat).

This is a reality of hundreds of millions of children around the world.


TOMS Shoes is doing their part to eradicate these horrible conditions through their One for One Movement. For every pair purchased, TOMS gives a new pair of shoes to a child in need. One for One. Using the purchasing power of individuals to benefit the greater good is what they are all about. The TOMS mission transforms customers into benefactors, which allows them to grow a truly sustainable business rather than depending on fundraising for support.

I'm not here to ask you to buy TOMS Shoes {though I'm considering it and am quite frankly torn between these two cute numbers}:
burlap classic
gilded herringbone.
But do consider spending just One Day Without Shoes.

On April 5th, 2011, people all over the world will be going barefoot to raise awareness of the impact that a pair of shoes can have on a child's life. There will be organized walks and events that day - all in an effort to spread the word.

Many bloggers / mothers work from home, so it can be hard to really raise awareness just by going barefoot when nobody sees your feet except your family. So instead I challenge you to blog barefoot.

Write about whatever you choose, but post a pic of your bare feet
 doing whatever you are doing! Then join me and link up at  Peggy Ann Design.

If you are not a blogger, post a picture of your bare feet on your Facebook page
or grab a button and raise awareness by emailing or posting it.

Just one day.

It can make a difference!
