One Day Without Shoes


In some developing nations, children must walk for miles to school, clean water and to seek medical help.  
Cuts and sores on feet can lead to serious infection.  
Often, children cannot attend school barefoot.  
In Ethiopia, approximately one million people are suffering from Podoconiosis, a debilitating and disfiguring disease caused by walking barefoot in volcanic soil.  
Podoconiosis is 100% preventable with basic foot hygiene and wearing shoes.  
So this guy starts a shoe company with the purpose of donating shoes to needy children.  There are SO SO many ways to help and make a difference in this world.

 But I really HATE going barefoot.
