Shoeless Tuesday!






Shoeless Tuesday is replacing Meatless Meal Tuesday this week! Simply because One Day Without Shoes landed on today! Oh and because I wanted taco salad for dinner..it happens! 

Peeps, it's hard without shoes!
Not only is it a little bit awkward BUT it is not comfortable at all! 
My feet were chilly and rocks kept getting stuck in them.
I got plenty of stares, especially in Costco, but I had a good opportunity to explain what I was doing and what TOMS does for children, when the lady behind me at Starbucks asked me about my shirt and no shoes. She was so impressed! I then bought her Starbucks for her, and had my first opportunity to hand out a pass it forward card! { I will blog about those asap!}
It is crazy to think that something we don't even think about daily, can change so much when you don't have it! I can't even imagine what its like to go everywhere every day with out any shoes. One day doesn't even compare, but it is such a good cause and a great experience!

Check out this years video!



If you joined in tell me about it!! If not, make sure to join in next year! I am hoping to organize a group walk next year! So looking forward to it! 

XOXO

    1. Understandable! This year I didn't have to work that day, but last year I was working and apparently shoes are necessary in a dental office also!
      Glad to hear the shoes came off asap! :)

  5. Did anyone try to tell you "no shoes, no shirt, no service" ?? because that was my first thought. I love this idea though...I personally hate to wear shoes, and never wear them around my office.

    Also, I'm sending you a gift certificate for a pedi. I'm assuming you're in need of one after walking around without shoes for an entire day?? :)
