But I do urge you all to read this entire post, and watch the videos, they are quite informative!
This a is post to raise awareness for people who have to struggle through every single day of their lives without shoes.
In the fashion world, we struggle along in fancy heels, and works of art, sometimes lavishing hundreds of dollars upon a single pair of footwear because of the name brand or style. I'm urging you to think for just a moment about the thousands upon thousands of people in developing nations around the world who's budget may never stretch far enough to afford even a single pair of the most simple shoes.
These are the people who have to walk miles for water every single day.
The people who have to endure harsh cold and blistering heat through the soles of their feet.
Who have to put up with potentially fatal cuts and blisters after every walk.
Well, next Thursday, April 8th, we have a chance to walk a mile (or more) in the place of these people. It's One Day Without Shoes ! People around the world will be support the cause and kicking off their shoes to walk freely in the countries around the world who have that choice.
I've made a small video to help advertise for the day!
"I pledge to go Barefoot all day long on Thursday, April 8th."
The choice to wear shoes or not is something we have every day, and I'm sure we take for granted.
One Day Without Shoes was started by the TOMS Shoes company. Their company gives a pair of shoes to a child in need for every.single.pair that they sell. How cool is that?
Here is some official Facts:
This one is my favorite:
