April 5th is “One Day without Shoes” Day. See the post below to watch the promo video. It is an effort to make people more grateful for the shoes we get to wear as well as encourage them to buy shoes for more than just themselves. Will you join me April 5th and go without shoes all day and everywhere.
If so, will you come back on Wednesday, April 6th, and share your “one day without shoes” story? What was it like? What did you notice? Why was it hard? What was the weather like? What did you stick in your foot? How will you be different? Or whatever else you want to share about the experience.
And you may do it and wish you hadn’t. If you thought it was dumb, share that too, including if you think it was the dumbest thing you ever did your whole life since that time in 8th grade when you gave Joey Weatherspoon a swirly in the locker room toilet. Or whatever dumb thing you did.
But I don’t think you will think it was dumb. You may even want to do it more than just once a year. Especially if you live in Florida.
And if you don’t own a pair of Toms, go to Toms.com and get a pair and you will also be buying a pair of shoes for a child who needs one.
Can’t wait to hear your stories!
So, who’s gonna be barefoot with me April 5th? Don’t forget to share with folks why you are doing it and how they can join in, too.
And no excuses here! I have fungus on the two smallest toe nails of my left foot, and I ain’t gonna hide it. No shame in this game. Especially if people who have no shoes get a pair of shoes because of the awareness it causes.
Grateful for Toms and the purpose of their business. Looking forward to next Tuesday.
