Hi guys! Can I just share the excitement I have right now? I am blogging from my new iPad! This is the coolest thing ever. :) I am a total Apple fan girl, so right now I'm in heaven. The whole reason I bought this thing was to use as a blogging and email tool. I have to make sure I make good use of it.
In addition to Apple products, I also love buying shoes. And when you pair cute shoes with philanthropy, well, what could be better? That's why I'm a big supporter of TOMS Shoes. I'm sure you've heard of them. For every pair of shoes purchased, they give a pair to a needy child. That means My purchases have put shoes on the feet of three children, which makes me feel better about buying shoes. :) These are my newest ones pictured to the right.
To raise awareness about their cause, TOMS is declaring April 8th "One Day Without Shoes."
Today's Assignment: Go a Day Without Shoes
It doesn't have to be the entire day. Maybe just a few minutes even. But TOMS is urging you to "experience a life without shoes first-hand" and they are asking you to "help spread the awareness of the impact a simple pair of shoes can bring to a child's life."
Visit the One Day Without Shoes website to search for events in your area, download some banners and signs, and pledge to go without shoes for at least part of April 8th. I'm sure I won't be allowed to walk around my office barefoot, but I'll make sure to give it a shot later in the day. Will you join me?
