i received a pair of toms shoes for christmas and i really like them. i keep checking their site just to browse the shoes and hope to get another pair sometime. the reason i like them is because they are a business like many other businesses, but they are very vocal about their humanitarian efforts. i know they are not a Christian organization but they are nevertheless doing good things. kids need shoes and every year TOMS hosts a day without shoes to raise awareness of what it would be like to live without shoes. the day is april 8th which is a thursday and i encourage you to go all, part, or even five minutes without shoes. i am thinking about "hosting" a walk that day, but not sure. would that be something you would be interested in, even if it was mostly just people we know? leave a comment and let me know if you are going without shoes that day. click on the post title for more info.
