NATIONAL GO BAREFOOT DAY

National Go Barefoot Day is observed on June 1.  This day is an opportunity to kick off your shoes and run barefoot through the cool grass! More importantly, it is a day to help support a charity that provides millions of underprivileged children all around the world with shoes

HOW TO OBSERVE

Now is a good time to clean out your closets and donate a pair or two of gently used shoes to a charitable organization in your area or see the following for information:    Soles4Souls organization. Use #GoBarefootDay to post on social media.

HISTORY

National Go Barefoot Day was created by the people at Soles4Souls.  The holiday got its start after the Tsunami disaster in 2004 to support those affected by the event.  However, donations have continued to come in and over 19 millions of pairs of shoes have been donated worldwide since 2005.
