Would you like to help a child who doesn’t have shoes? Well, today is no shoes day, and you can help – for free!
It’s a day where you are asked to abandon your shoes to focus your mind on the millions of people around the world who don’t have the luxury of having shoes.
Think about that for a moment.
Forget about a home, with heating or air conditioning. Forget about a computer. Forget about alcohol, caffeine, convenience food or fresh fruit. Forget about fashionable clothes, designer gear or clothes with the right label.
Millions of people don’t have shoes.
Insect bites or small cuts are particularly dangerous on feet as the chances are the people with no shoes are not walking in the most sanitary of conditions. The open wounds mean that they can pick up infections that become ground into the the feet. This can be life threatening.
A lot of these people will be children. Children struggling to survive by scavenging through rubbish tips. Can you imagine having to go through other peoples rubbish in order to find some scraps that you can sell so that you can eat? Now imagine doing it with no shoes on. Scrabbling through broken glass, twisted metal and filthy needles.
