One Day Without Shoes

I came across this interesting consciousness-raising effort called One Day Without Shoes. They are encouraging individuals, campuses, and communities to pledge to go barefoot for one day, April 8th, to raise awareness about the millions of people who must walk barefoot for miles every day, risking infection and disease. In many places, children are not allowed to attend school unless they wear shoes, making education unattainable. Give it some thought, and hope for an extension of our early spring!
