April 8 2010 will be a memorable to day to everyone who participates. TOMS shoes has arranged One Day Without shoes to show us the impact of why we need shoes!

would a company GIVE away a pair of shoes for every pair they sold?
Sure, it might sound crazy at first but One Day Without Shoes expresses
everything we stand for: educating consumers about the impact a pair of
shoes can have on a child's like and empowering them with simple
actions that address the need for shoes. Learn more at http://www.onedaywithoutshoes.com
