The annual TOMS One Day Without Shoes event is being help on the 21st of May, and is a global initiative designed to draw attention to the plight of children in developing nations who face injury, illness and missed opportunity because they don’t have adequate footwear. One Day Without Shoes brings global awareness to children’s health and education by going without shoes for a day, a meeting, a minute or even just for a photo.

For the first time ever TOMS have upped the ante and your social sharing could change the life of a child in need directly… From 5 May – 21 May pledge your commitment to participate on One Day Without Shoes with a barefoot Instagram photo using #withoutshoes and give a pair of shoes to a child in need!

TOMS will honour your commitment to raising awareness for children’s health and education and for every photo of bare feet tagged on Instagram using #withoutshoes, TOMS will actually give a new pair of shoes to a child in need (up to 1 million shoes) – no purchase necessary.

How can you get involved?
·       A quick snap on your Instagram (from 5th-21st May) of your bare feet using  #withoutshoes // @TOMS // @tomsaustralia
·       Go One Day Without Shoes with a few friends; try an ‘experience walk’ around the block, one meeting without shoes, a morning tea without shoes – it’s entirely up to you, have a look at some more ideas around how you can participate here.
