Join TGATP as we support One Day Without Shoes, an annual initiative by TOMS Shoes to bring awareness to the issue of worldwide child poverty. Every year, TOMS Shoes asks the world to go without shoes so that kids don’t have to. On this day each year, TOMS (www.TOMS.com) raises our awareness of the impact a pair of shoes can have on a child’s life.
Millions of children around the world grow up without shoes, and thus, are at risk of infection and disease. TOMS Shoes was founded on the One for One™ premise that with every pair of shoes someone purchases, a pair of new shoes will be given to a child in need. (Other companies are now copying their idea.) The idea of One Day Without Shoes came about as a way to call attention to the need for shoes around the world and the issues surrounding that need. Give your office mates a head’s up today, so that everyone can get pedicured and spend the 10th at work shoeless.
One Day Without Shoes participants can go to www.OneDayWithoutShoes.com to get all the latest updates, create and join events in their area, download an event tool kit, and see what others around the world will be doing on April 10th .
