A day without shoes...

Today, thousands of people went to work...without shoes. TOMS shoes at hosted "A Day Without Shoes" in order to raise awareness for the MILLIONS of children that are forced to travel by barefoot, suffering injuries, getting infections..all because they do not have a pair of shoes. I wasn't sure how people at my workplace would react...I think some of them thought I was crazy....and I am. Many of them asked...and I SHARED a simple message. If you missed it this year, you can still get on their website and purchase a pair of shoes. For every pair purchased, they donate a pair of shoes to people in developing nations! I LOVE this cause!!

Be the HOPE!
