Today I walked barefoot for a cause. Toms Shoes is a company that takes consumerism and turns it on its head. For every pair of shoes that you buy, one pair is given to a child in need. Check out http://www.toms.com to get your own pair!
Today was Toms Shoes’ “One Day Without Shoes” day. I bought some Toms a few weeks ago, and I love them! I went to class today in the cold rain, shoe-less, to raise awareness for the Toms cause. I think I got some people to check into getting some!
My friend Sarah (from the “Out on a Night Walk” post) took a picture of our Toms the other day!
Also, I wrote a poem about my shoe-less day during my debate class (obviously I was paying attention, ha ha!)
My Sole Touched the Ground By Gloriann McDonaldSo much of us is covered Thick woven thread over legs covers chest and arms as a barrier between skin and air We are good at covering ourselves but Today I touched the ground The sky was thick gray air was cold rain fell in chilled puddles Today I took off my shoes and The pavement was gray numb and cold puddles chilled my feet Today I took off my shoes and my sole touched the ground.
