On Tuesday April 29th Toms is asking you to go without shoes and help make a difference.

Millions of children around the world live without proper footwear and are exposed to injury and disease every single day. One Day Without Shoes is Toms’ annual event that aims to raise awareness of the positive impact a pair of shoes can have on a child’s life.

Want to take part in the global initiative? The good news is, you don’t have to go anywhere to participate! On Tuesday April 29th all you have to do is take off your shoes, tell people you are doing it and encourage them to do it too. Take a picture of yourself and the shoeless people around you and share your photos on your various social media platforms (using the hastags #withoutshoes and #TOMSCanada). Helping children in need has never been so simple.

The socially conscious company has been organizing the One Day Without Shoes event since 2006.
