I Smell Feet

Blank stare…“McGee, where are you shoes?”… “McGee, you look like you on a beach somewhere.”… “Ummm, You do realize you don’t have on any shoes, right?”… “OMG, for a second, I thought you had on a brown pair of shoes!”

These were just a few of the comments I received Wednesday April 20, 2011 as I went “One Day Without Shoes”. Just so you know “One Day Without Shoes”, founded by Blake Mycoskie (TOMS Shoes) is a worldwide campaign that took place on April 5, 2011. For that day, everyone did not wear shoes…. AT ALL. No shoes…No Socks…ALL DAY! The purpose of the campaign is to raise the awareness of those who suffer from not having shoes to wear as well as acknowledging podoconiosis, which is a foot disease. Another part of the campaign is purchasing a pair of shoes called “Toms” and when you do that; you actually are donating a pair of shoes to someone who is in need. I know I was two weeks off with the date,
