Blake of TOMS shoes along with the band Hanson, Maggie Grace and Dave Matthews Band are all encouraging their fans to take off their shoes for 1 day - April 16, 2009. Take your shoes off and go barefoot for a day, get your friends involved and raise awareness that kids need shoes. TOMS shoes started in 2006 when Blake Mycoskie traveled to Argentina and discovered the kids there had no shoes to protect their feet. When they don’t protect their feet they can get infections and many other diseases. For every pair of shoes that are purchased, TOMS shoes gives a pair to kids in need.
Be sure to go to www.myspace.com/tomsshoes and add one of their badges to your page to encourage your friends to get involved.
