I went ‘One Day Without Shoes‘ to raise awareness of people in poorer countries who can’t afford to buy shoes, so they go without and are therefore at risk of soil transmitted diseases and the like. I walked to the town nearest my village and I got 7 people ask me why I had no shoes on, which is pretty good seeing as people generally just think you’re a hippie if you do things like that here, and its not often that someone will just go up to a stranger and talk to them about their shoes!Β
