Last Tuesday, on April 5th, TOMS Shoes had a hugely successful campaign called One Day Without Shoes, asking participants to go a day without shoes. There are many people around the world that are without shoes, and TOMS is an amazing movement that gives a shoe to a child in need for every shoe purchased.
There were many of our favorite musicians that participated and helped spread the word, including Jason Mraz as seen in the poster above. TOMS made a video thanking all the participants, and features more of our favorites; Sara Bareilles, Kris Allen, Matisyahu, Parachute, and Lenny Kravitz.
The video also features “Marching On” by OneRepublic.
It’s a great movement. They even have vegan shoes!
I didn’t go a day without shoes last Tuesday, but I do plan on picking up a pair of Vegan TOMS shoes – these one.
Hopefully the people at TOMS, participants throughout the world and artists in the video above will inspire you to purchase a pair and pass the message along.
