This morning we told the girls that we were not going to wear shoes. Our oldest wanted to know if we were still "going to go outside." She was thrilled at the idea of running around with bare feet.
Today, was Toms Shoes' One Day Without Shoes.
Toms Shoes is a company that is acutely aware of global poverty and how shoes can change lives.
Toms Shoes has created an amazing business model: With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One.
Today, 250,000 people around the county went barefoot to help bring awareness. Here in Woodbine, GA it may have been just the four of us.
We took a short walk in our campground barefoot. The girls didn't seem to think anything of it. Stephanie and I laughed, thinking about how the other campers were secretly talking about the weird family walking around in the dirt without shoes. "Now, we're REALLY hippies!" Stephanie quipped.
This afternoon I went to the library and the grocery store. Wearing shoes and a shirt is a requirement by most establishments so I wore my pair of Toms and they let me in.
Do you have a pair of Toms shoes? Did you go shoeless today?
