One Day Without Shoes is a holiday sponsored by Toms to raise awareness of the millions of children around the world who live without shoes. Shoes are a basic need that we take for granted, but living without them can make everyday activities much more difficult and dangerous. Feet are much more likely to become infected when they are bare. Toms gives a pair of shoes to someone in need with every pair you buy. On One Day Without Shoes Toms encourages people to spend the day with no shoes to show others just how important shoes are. They also have promised to donate a pair of shoes every time you share a photo of your bare feet on instagram. The date of this holiday is determined by the people at Toms and usually falls in April or May.
