So as you know from the post below my sister and i spent the day supporting
*One Day Without Shoes* movement.
It was definatley an experience!
Over 1/4 million people spent the day today without shoes for the awareness of those who spend EVERYDAY without shoes due to not having a choice!
talk about being aware of where you are stepping or standing!
I just couldn't imagine walking around to where I need to be everyday without shoes!
The trending hash mark today on twitter for the movement was
#hardwithoutshoes and it WAS!!!
Every time I complained about it I couldn't help but feel sad for those that deal with it everyday :(
It was a hot day today in Southern California, so walking on the hot pavement was "interesting"...
and I read on twitter that some where out in the RAIN without shoes for the movement!!
and even in the SNOW!!!!
thats insane! ....yet super awesome!
So, I have to say that I am glad I did it!
It was an educational experience today!
My eyes were opened and I am officially AWARE and ready to do what i can to make a difference...
Today I saw a photo via @TOMSshoes and it read that at the Rwanda shoe drop, a child showed up with 2 left mismatched shoes!
My heart was broken.
BUT look at the change that TOMSshoes is making!
and I'm sure they made an even bigger difference with their movement today.
*Look at their honestly thankful smiles!!*
So first things first... I need to get a pair of TOMS! I've been wanting some for a while and after today I've decided it's time.
I'll get a great pair of shoes and so will a child who doesn't have shoes.
Here I am with my cat Frankie...
...he went barefoot today too :)
thanks TOMS for the experience!
