I'm Going Barefoot!


I found this video on a website while doing a homework assignment for my Copywriting and Concepting class. The purpose of the assignment was to critique a banner from MSN.com and the banner happened to be the one for TOMS. TOMS Shoes was founded with the purpose for every pair of she you buy, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. I've heard of TOMS before, but had never really looked into it. After critiquing the banner for my homework assignment I started looking me more into what it is about.

On April 8th is a world wide event to raise awareness for children who are in need. It is being hosted by TOMS, and everyone will go barefoot for one day. The day is meant to bring the awareness to the fact that just one pair of shoes can make a big impact on a child's life. I decided I'm going to participate. Well at least try. I don't know how much the school will like me walking around barefoot on campus, so that's what my Chacos are for, but I'm going to do my best. I guess I'll just have to slip of my shoes as I'm studying and when I get off campus. Haha.

This summer while I'm off track I want to get involved in something. Something that will help me to realise how fortunate I am to have all that I have. I want to help make a difference in some ones life. This is just the start.
