Could You Go One Day Without Shoes?

Do you think you could go a day without shoes?

I know personally I have a love hate relationship with them. I love how cute they are and how they can really polish off an outfit, yet if given the choice to wear shoes or not, I more than likely would choose not to wear shoes because I love the feeling of the ground beneath my bare feet.

However in some parts of the world they don't get the luxury of a choice whether they want to wear shoes or not.
"10 year old Maria from Guatemala lives in the mountains and works in muddy terrain making farming difficult, both physically and economically. Maria has never owned a pair of new shoes. This leaves her exposed to infection, intestinal worms, and cold weather illness."
Join me along with thousands of other people all over the world on Tuesday April 5th, 2011 and help raise awareness and money for those that can't afford to have one pair of shoes let alone 6 that match with every outfit they own.

If you are interested in donating to the cause check out the website for more information, and please blog about this to spread the word ♥

I also highly suggest buying a pair of TOMS shoes. They are SO amazing and you can feel good about wearing them because for every pair you buy, one pair of shoes is given to a child in need. They are a bit on the pricey side but well worth it because they are super comfy, and they come in such cute materials and patterns too. They even have vegan friendly shoes!

These are the pair I already own in black. My little sis got them for me for Christmas this year!

Nice colour and they are in corduroy.

Super cute wedges perfect for the summer.

Just make sure you don't wear your super awesome TOMS shoes on April 5th!
