TOMS Shoes is a company that has always fascinated me. The way the company was founded is a great story. The One for One movement is inspiring. And the fact that they have given away over 400,000 shoes since 2006 is even better. TOMS has been on my mind in the last few weeks because their One Day Without Shoes is fast approaching. TOMS is encouraging people around the world to go a day, or even just a few hours, without shoes on April 8th. One Day Without Shoes spreads awareness about the impact of a single pair of shoes on a child’s life. There are events all over the world – as of today 658 events scheduled. There is a fun toolkit on TOMS website for you to promote your event.
Since April 8th is a Thursday, I will not be able to go the entire day without shoes, but I will be sporting this t-shirt in support and will slide my shoes off while around EXIT. Hope you will too!
