Join Patch in One Day Without Shoes

Pull off your socks and shoes. It is TOMS Shoes' One Day Without Shoes.

Thousands are doing it. You should do it too. Get shoeless.

Join Patch Editors , , and in One Day Without Shoes, an awareness campaign by TOMS Shoes. The goal of the annual event is to spread awareness of the millions of children around the world that don't have shoes to support and protect their feet, the base of our bodies.

TOMS, a company that has incorporated a socially responsible mission to their business plan, donates one pair of shoes for every pair purchased.

Numerous companies and celebrities have pulled off their kicks for One Day Without Shoes. Companies include AOL (Patch's parent company), Discovery and Nordstrom. Some celebrities that have participated are Lenny Kravitz and Charlize TheronTOMS reported that 1,400 companies and 500 schools participated in the event last year. In addition, more than 1,000 events were planned across 25 countries.

So now we challenge you. Please participate in One Day Without Shoes. Let your feet breathe for even a few hours and upload a photo to share your accomplishments. Extra respect will be given for feet in rare places and to soles with a nice shade of dirt.

It is heartwarming to know that people from all over the world are getting together to participate in this campaign, though not physically. It not only brings people close together emotionally, but also raise the awareness on the less fortunate, especially children, who are not able to afford even just a single pair of shoes. Unlike us, who have at least 5 pairs of all shapes and sizes, just sitting on the shoe racks back at home (pretty sure ladies are guilty of owning even more). Thus, let us all spend just one day, or a few hours of the day at the very least, barefooted, be it in the office or at home or out in the woods or even in the business district area to show our sincere support for such a great cause and try to be in their "shoes" for one day. Hopefully after that very day, we could be moved to spare a pair or two to the needy and let them take a walk in our shoes. http://www.bigshoes.com
