Every year, TOMS Shoes asks the world to go without shoes so that kids don’t have to with its annual One Day Without Shoes event. This is the day each year that TOMS (www.TOMS.com) raises awareness of the impact a pair of shoes can have on a child’s life.
Millions of children around the world grow up without shoes, at risk of infection and disease. TOMS Shoes was founded on the premise that with every pair of shoes someone purchases, a pair of new shoes will be given to a child in need. One for One™. The idea of One Day Without Shoes came about as a way to call attention to the need for shoes around the world and the issues surrounding that need.
One Day Without Shoes participants can go to www.OneDayWithoutShoes.com to get all the latest updates, create and join events in their area, download an event tool kit, and see what others around the world will be doing on April 10th . See if your boss will do this as a team building exercise. Take up a donation from your friends/family for the 60 minutes you’re without shoes and make a donation to TOMS. Every penny will help make a difference. If you simply can’t, then remember that for every purchase of Toms Shoes you buy, they will give one to a child that is in need.
