One Day Without Shoes

Today is the "One Day Without Shoes" awareness day sponsored by Toms.  I am a HUGE Toms fan if you didn't already know that.  Toms is a movement geared at providing shoes for kids in developing countries.  For every pair of shoes that Toms sells, they give a pair to a child in need.  I love that people are out doing what they can to make the world better, to support fellow men and just be kind.  If you haven't heard of Toms you definitely need to check out their website http://www.toms.com/ It's really incredible.  I can't imagine not owning a pair of shoes.  Especially because, let's be honest, girls tend to own more than 5 pairs of shoes on average.  As I write this I am sitting on BYU campus waiting for class to start, without shoes.  I know, it sounds gross and I am ready to wash my feet, but because of this one thing, I can raise awareness about kids who have less than I do.  I get funny looks from people, but it's so worth it because I then have the chance to spread the word about this amazing movement.  If you missed out on today, you can still help raise awareness.  Buy a pair of Toms, get more informed yourself, help raise awareness in your community.  It's all worth it.
