Tuesday 16th April is NO SHOES DAY.
Help Tom and TOMS Shoes by being barefooted for the day like Tom intends to do.
For just one day leave those shoes at home and show you care like Tom does. Make people aware of the health hazzards of not having the luxury of shoes something we all take for granted.
TOMS already send one pair of their shoes for every pair we buy to poverty stricken children who do not have such luxuries instead are affected by HOOKWORM . Something that causes long term physical effects that include stunted growth, decreased cognitive development, anemia and croninc fatigue.
Studies show that children affected by hookworm are 20% less likely to go to school and earn 40% less in adult life.
So whats the solution to provide prevention and treatment to include education, medication and improved hygiene and sanitation and protection from soil.
WHY SHOES ? You may ask.
The IMA WORLD HEALTH give de-worming medication along with shoes to children to help them stay healthy with the combination of prevention and treatment.
No shoes will arouse
curiosity ==> conversation ==> action ==> change.

Tom is already supporting END 7 as ambassador to stamp out 7 deadly diseases by 2020 along with fellow actors and actresses all shocked by what they have seen with hookworm being included so this shows us just how much he cares for the children and adults alike and helping them to live in safe enviroment .
LETS SHOW TOM OUR SUPPORT AND THAT WE CARE AS MUCH AS HE DOES.
