ONE DAY WITHOUT SHOES - JOIN ME!


A few amazing events have happened in my life but I have been too lazy to blog about them! I went and saw The Dirty Projectors play in Knoxville with Tim on our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY. =) I also got to see Tim's world premiere of his current piece, Old Man With Turnip. More on all of that later.

I wanted to let everyone know that I am
GOING BAREFOOT TOMORROW.

why? To raise awareness about all the kids who don't have shoes.

The impact of a pair of shoes has on a child can be life-changing. Raise awareness this April 8. Go barefoot!

The Facts:

* Fact #1: In some developing nations, children must walk for miles to food, clean water and to seek medical help.
* Fact #2: Cuts and sores on feet can lead to serious infection.
* Fact #3: Often, children cannot attend school barefoot.
* Fact #4: In Ethiopia, approximately one million people are suffering from Podoconiosis, a debilitating and disfiguring disease caused by walking barefoot in volcanic soil.
* Fact #5: Podoconiosis is 100% preventable by wearing shoes.


YOU SHOULD GO BAREFOOT TOO.

Some kids in my school were doing that today! It baffled my math teacher, which was quite funny. :)
