I just love the summer time. It's time to kick off the shoes and go barefoot. June 1st is National Go Barefoot Day and a great opportunity to kick off your shoes and go barefoot. It also helps to provide those without shoes a chance to get a pair of shoes.
Enjoy going barefoot, doing good for someone else and getting a dreaded chore done all at the same time. Clean out your closets and donate a pair or two of your gently used shoes. Charitable organizations in your area or would be glad to have the shoes.
Soles4Souls started in 2006 and since that time have collected and distributed 26 million pairs of shoes. There have been 127 countries around the world and all 50 states in the U.S. that have been helped. Without shoes children can not go to school, adults can not work, and it is hard to walk. Shoes provides a chance in developing nations around the globe. U.S. and Canada have been helped in times of disaster and in economic poor areas.
