April 10th was a big day for TOMS as people around the world participated in the brand's "One Day Without Shoes" campaign. Amsterdam, London, and Seoul were just a few of the cities that showed their support, and of course, New York came out in full force! We all woke up bright and early to take part in a march around Tompkins Square Park in order to help spread the word about how a single pair of shoes can change a child's life.
We took off our shoes and walked for about thirty minutes in and around the park.
I have to admit, my feet killed by the end of the walk. I can't imagine what it's like to go through life without shoes to protect your feet, and yet millions of kids do it. Thats why TOMS is such an incredible company it gives shoes to children who need them!
