"It was only a sunny smile, and little it cost in the giving, but like morning light it scattered the night and made the day worth living."

 Did you dare to go bare?

TOMS mission:
Why do we give shoes?

Many children in developing countries grow up barefoot. 
Whether at play, doing chores or going to school, these children are at risk.

:: Growing Up Barefoot.
In many developing countries, children must walk barefoot 
for miles to school, clean water and medical help.

::Injury and Disease.
Hundreds of millions of children are at risk of injury, infection,
and soil-transmitted diseases that most can’t afford to prevent and treat.

:: Education and Opportunity.
Children who are healthy are more likely to be successful students,
and access to education is a critical determinant of long-term success.

:: A Better Tomorrow.
A village of healthy, educated children have a better chance 
of improving the future of their entire community.
