National Go Barefoot Day

Tuesday, June 1st,  is Go Barefoot Day which is vaguely reminiscent of No Socks Day, a holiday that we observed on May 8 but which did not have quite as much meaning behind it as this one.

Go Barefoot Day is actually the kick-off day for Barefoot Week, held June 1-7, 2010.

Go Barefoot Day is a day for us, who have so much, to walk in someone else's shoes, or in this case the lack of them.  There are thousands of people in the U.S. and around the world who do not own a decent pair of shoes. On June 1st, all Americans are encouraged to kick off their shoes and go barefoot in support of Soles4Souls' campaign to collect and distribute shoes to children around the world.

Check out Soles4Souls' website to find out how you can donate shoes and money to help out with this honorable cause.

Have a fun-filled day as you and your fairest friends flip off your Filas and favorite fringed socks in a fain felicific fashion and feel the fresh air frolicking freely across the freckled flesh of your free and fancy feet! In other words - enjoy the day!

I used this video of Ziggy Marley (son of Bob Marley) on my No Socks Day post, but it's cute and worth an encore. Enjoy.
