Holiday Wish List: Item #5

For any shoe lover, the idea of not having shoes is unimaginable.  But the notion that not having shoes could lead to death is purely unthinkable.  All hail TOMS Shoes.  This charitable organization has created a movement to outfit children in developing countries with shoes by way of every sale it makes. One for one.

According to TOMS website, a leading cause of disease in developing countries is soil-transmitted diseases, which can penetrate the skin through bare feet.  Wearing shoes can help prevent these diseases, and the long-term physical and cognitive harm they cause.
Wearing shoes also prevents feet from getting cuts and sores. Not only are these injuries painful, they also are dangerous when wounds become infected.
Many times children can’t attend school barefoot because shoes are a required part of their uniform. If they don’t have shoes, they don’t go to school. If they don’t receive an education, they don’t have the opportunity to realize their potential.
So this holiday season, I have my eyes on this cute pair of canvas wedges that will be perfect come spring. This charitable shopping exercise is well within anyone’s budget at $69.  (The resulting feelgood vibes are free.)
Do you need any more reason?!
