In first world nations, most folks have a choice of which pair of shoes to wear each day.

Yet in many parts of the world, over 500 million children, teens and adults do not own even a single a pair of shoes and regardless of weather and terrain, must walk barefoot everywhere.

Daily existence without foot protection can lead to a lifetime of problems including pain, injury, cuts, sores, infections, and parasites. Many schools and businesses ban students and customers without shoes.

A stigma becomes attached who do not have proper footwear, which negatively affects their health, education and financial well being.

A lucky few have one pair of shoes even though the shoes are much too big for them. This way, the shoes will last for many years as they grow, and they are often only allowed to be worn for special occasions.  In other cases, they may have one pair of shoes that are too small and tight for them (they will make them work) but to have a pair at all is a luxury.

Consider a site such as Soles4Souls to donate shoes for National Shoe the World Day. When a person purchases shoes from Thom's a pair of shoes is automatically donated in a Third World country. 

National Shoe The World Day was inspired by Donald Zsemonadi and the United Indigenous People in Fontana, California in March of 2014.
