EBOOST at TOMS One Day Without Shoes

26 April 2010

TOMS SHoes EBOOST A lot of you have probably heard of TOMS Shoes, the company that gives one pair of shoes away for every pair they sell. If you haven't, check out their website (www.toms.com). They're a great company and we're happy to be involved whenever they have an event to promote their cause. On April 8th, TOMS celebrates One Day Without Shoes. In cities all over the world people go without shoes for an hour or a day to show support for kids who don't have any shoes. And let me tell you, it gives you a healthy respect for the hardships faced by the lack of such a simple thing.In case you're thinking that shoes aren't that important, here are some of the difficulties faced by kids who don't have them: On April 8th this year, EBOOST staff were proud to join TOMS for their one-mile barefoot march in Venice, CA, where both TOMS and EBOOST are located. Of course, we took our little packets of powdered goodness with us and gave them away to other walkers. Check out the photos:
