Toms One Day Without Shoes Event Raises Awareness For Children's Needs Around the Globe

Toms One Day Without Shoes Event Raises Awareness For Children's Needs Around the Globe

Over 70,000 people worldwide have pledged to participate in Toms One Day Without Shoes event this Thursday, April 8. Asking people to go barefoot for the day (or just for one minute of the day), is Blake Mycoskie, founder and mastermind of Toms one-for-one shoe campaign.

Mycoskie says of his goal in creating One Day Without Shoes, "It's important to experience the impact a simple pair of shoes can make in a child's life. I think sometimes we forget all that we have, and occasionally we should remind ourselves."

People around the globe — from the US to Australia — will unite together on April 8 to bring awareness to the need for shoes in many parts of the world. Those who can't (or won't) go shoe-less for the cause yet want to participate can do so virtually by changing their Facebook profile photo, status, or Twitter avatar on the One Day Without Shoes website. As for Blake, he'll be with friends, family, and the team from Toms leading a barefoot walk in Venice, CA, and welcomes you to join him.
