147 Million Orphans hosted an event for National Barefoot Day on April 5, 2011. It was created by TOMS to raise awareness for the children globally who are prone to (preventable) infection and disease because of their lack of shoes and proper foot care. Since we don't live anywhere near Nashville (and our college group meets on Tuesdays), we encouraged our group to participate and had our own no shoes day with our students!
Also, be sure to check out the new spring line at 147. It's super cute stuff and the proceeds directly help to FEED, provide medication and CLEAN water for those who ARE WITHOUT.
"...once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12
