One Day Without Shoes is not only a day of awareness, but also a reminder of so many things as famed American cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead states in her above quote.
After all, that’s how TOMS started: as a small group of interns led by Blake Mycoskie in a tiny loft apartment. And it’s also how One Day Without Shoes began. It was an idea formulated by a small group of college students on Pepperdine University’s campus. Eight years later, it has grown to an international initiative.
One Day Without Shoes is a day to spread global awareness for children’s health and education issues — and how shoes play a small part in alleviating them. But One Day also inspires us to take the next step in evolving the Giving model for for business, organizations, communities and individuals.
