TOMS Shoes and Charlize Theron Go Barefoot For The Day
Celebs are putting away their Louboutins for a day in order to raise awareness on behalf of TOMS Shoes.

TOMS’ annual event, “One Day Without Shoes”, takes place every April 5 and urges people to go without shoes for a day. In doing this, the company aims to raise awareness on the impact a lack of shoes and hygiene can have on a person's life.

“The problem is large but the solution is simple,” Blake Mycoskie, TOMS Shoes Founder and Chief Shoe Giver said. “Wearing shoes and basic hygiene can prevent both infection and disease due to unsafe roads and contaminated soil. By imagining a life without shoes, we can all contribute to the awareness of these conditions, which is why we ask everyone to join TOMS on April 5 and participate in One Day Without Shoes.”

So if your boss asks you why you’ve got your bare feet propped up on his desk, just tell him it’s for a good cause. If he then says, “ok, but I still don’t want your feet on my desk,” put out your cigar, and tell him you can’t work under these conditions.

At last year’s Day Without Shoes, over 250,000 people participated in 1,600 events around the world. TOMS donates a pair of shoes for every pair purchased.

Celebrities like Charlize Theron, Lenny Kravitz, Jason Mraz, and Fran Drescher are among those participating in today’s events.
