TOMS Shoes Hosts “One Day Without Shoes”
Charity minded folks mark your calendars. On Tuesday, April 5th TOMS Shoes will host their annual event One Day Without Shoes. It is an event that will raise awareness of the importance of a pair of shoes for every child around the world. As a reminder to the global community about the importance of shoes for children in need, TOMS Shoes asks the world to go without shoes for one day as well as participate in walks in and around local communities. Shoes are a essential part of disease and infection prevention, and TOMS Shoes hopes to call attention to the this basic need, the issues surrounding this need, and the many children around the world who go without shoes every day.
“The problem is large but the solution is simple. Wearing shoes and basic hygiene can prevent both infection and disease due to unsafe roads and contaminated soil. By imagining a life without shoes, we can all contribute to the awareness of these conditions,” says TOMS’ Founder Blake Mycoskie.
TOMS Shoes operates on the premise that for every pair of shoes purchased, TOMS will donate one pair of shoes to a child in need.
