Let’s walk barefoot….!

Could you go a whole day without shoes? What if it meant you could raise awareness for BLOG3_TOMSIIchildren’s health and education? Well, you can do both! On Tuesday, walk to campus, go to work or run your errands BAREFOOT. Let those feetsies and toesies breathe for the day and help TOMS raise awareness for the children. TOMS created a video to show how they made an impact with schools, companies and people across 50 countries last year.

Help me spread the word about this amazing event sponsored by TOMS and go barefoot with me and all my friends and coworkers on Tuesday. Here in Eugene, it’s supposed to be absolutely beautiful: 72 degrees and sunny!

You can help spread the word by going barefoot and telling your followers on social media platforms such as Twitter. I actually tweeted @TOMS just yesterday about this event and they retweeted me and 20 people retweeted it along with 14 people favoriting my tweet. That is the most action I’ve EVER gotten on one tweet, it felt pretty awesome if I’d say so myself.BLOG3_TOMSI

So! I hope to see all my fellow classmates, friends, family and coworkers walking barefoot as they go about their daily lives. Help me, and help TOMS raise awareness for children’s health and education.

Until next time,
