April 5th: Go Barefoot.


Because millions in the world go without the basics of life: water, medical access, even shoes. On April 5th join thousands of others who will show their support for those without shoes. (Don’t do it because Demi Moore is doing it, or any of the other ‘celebrities’ highlighted in the video below. We don’t celebrate them; we celebrate the courage of the mom who carries her infant daughter miles and miles daily through the mid-day heat to get quasi-safe drinking water and back the other direction for a ration of food — every step barefoot and with debilitating pain. Go without shoes for one day because there are hundreds of thousands of amazing kids who have no choice today.)
