The day has finally arrived! It’s time to kick off your shoes and go barefoot for a day to support and raise awareness of the millions of children around the world that lack adequate footwear. Did you know that something as simple as a pair of shoes can change a child’s life? Shoes can protect a child from dangerous illnesses and diseases, and can provide the opportunity to receive an education, which means hope for the future. This is the concept behind the One Day Without Shoes campaign and it’s sweeping the nation, and the world!
Today, people all across the globe are joining in and pledging to go a day without shoes. Not only will this draw attention, but it will also provide the opportunity to spread the word and educate others about this important cause. In addition to wearing no shoes for a day, many participants will be promoting the event through the use of rally signs, street stencils, stickers, shirts and displays. The more people that learn about the cause, the bigger the impact we can have, and the more lives we can change.
If you haven’t done so already, consider joining forces with others who care by participating in one of the many One Day Without Shoes events that are going on around the world. For those people who simply can’t go barefoot, you can still get behind the cause electronically by promoting it on Facebook with a One Day Without Shoes banner or profile picture. The day we’ve all been anticipating is finally here so let’s kick off our shoes and spread the word. Together we can make a difference in the lives of children with no shoes around the world and give them hope for a better tomorrow.
