This Thursday, April 16, go without shoes to raise awareness of the need for shoes around the globe. TOMS is putting on this event as a way to remind people that others in developing countries go without shoes everyday, which can be hazardous to their health. The disease, Podoconiosis, is a debilitating and disfiguring disease caused by walking barefoot in volcanic soil. It is also 100% preventable by wearing shoes. Support TOMS and children everywhere who cannot afford shoes by visiting their website.
Many cities are putting on walks or events to help raise awareness in the community. Check the TOMS shoes website for an event near you. In Spokane, Wa., Whitworth University will be hosting a mile long walk around the loop at 12:15pm to help educate about the growing problem.

Go Barefoot and help make a difference in the world. We take for granted the fact that we get to wear shoes everyday. Help show your support by going barefoot for a day or buying shoes at TOMS website. Their mission of One for One will help to change the lives of children around the globe.
