It's a good day in WI to go barefoot, and it's a good day in the world to think about the luxury of shoes. Go barefoot today, folks. Here is why: TOMS Shoes is asking you to give up shoes for a day in an effort to experience what it is like for the many children who must go without shoes each day. The company, which donates a pair of shoes to a child in need for every adult pair purchased, is hoping to raise awareness about the impact a pair of shoes has on a child by asking people to "go barefoot on the way to the water cooler, walking to the mailbox, in an afternoon meeting or on your lunch break." For more information, visit www.tomsshoes.com. Read the "our movement" section and think about how one person's mission can change lives. It's a one to one program and it's a good one. While you're there, buy a pair of Tom's.
