One Day Without Shoes: Not An Industry Related Post

One Day Without Shoes Fact 1Here’s the thing:  If I don’t use the eyeballs this blog gets to help make the world a better place, I’m not being true to who I am.  Bare with me – yes, I have my punny on today!  Today is April 5th and that means that I’ll be barefoot all day long.  Everywhere I go.  I’ve committed to One Day Without Shoes.

Now, if you see me out today, you’ll notice that I’m barefoot and some of you will ask me why.

I will educate you on Podoconiosis – a soil-transmitted disease caused by walking in silica-rich soil – and how easily the painful and debilitating disease can be combatted with the simplest of measures.  Shoes.

I will explain about the massive numbers of children who must walk, barefoot, through silica-rich soil every day because there is a luxury they cannot afford.  Shoes.

I will share that I’m a huge fan of Toms Shoes because “for every pair purchased, Toms gives a new pair of shoes to a child in need.  One for One.”

I tell people about Toms all year long (and Warby-Parker eyeglasses).  One Day Without Shoes is a barefoot global awareness event.  Join us?
