Hey everyone! Maybe you’re participating in this already, but if not, here’s your chance to take off your shoes and raise awareness for everyone who doesn’t have a choice of going barefoot. TOM’s shoes has declared today, April 8th, one day without shoes and I’m joining with them. I know it’s a little ironic that I got a pedicure for my birthday so my feet are extra pampered… but in some ways that’s exactly the kind of contrast that brings awareness to a day like today. It’s something that you may not think about until it’s gone, and I’m amazed by a company like TOM’s who has based their business and mission upon serving others. While there are a lot of non-profit’s that have adopted this mission, there very few businesses that have done so. It’s something we can all be challenged by – not only to reach out and serve others but to incorporate those kinds of actions into our daily lives. wow. that just blew my mind. What is perhaps even more amazing is that TOM’s has leveled the playing field, and something that has caught on as a fashion trend is also being worn by children in developing countries.
So, remember how in my birthday list I also said I wanted to have some awesome giveaways on my blog? Well I think this is the perfect time to start. Just cause I love you guys I’m going to buy a pair of TOM’s for one lucky commenter. How do you win? Comment on this post – today – and let us all know where you would wear your TOM’s, or who would wear the TOM’s you win and what size they’d wear. Maybe you want to wear them to your wedding, get them for your baby (they are super cute), live in them all summer long… I don’t know, you tell me and at midnight I’ll pick a random number to decide our winner. So get commenting, share this with your friends, and take off your shoes (until I send you some TOM’s to put on)
