A Travel Journal Giveaway! (Closed)

Coming at you with a Tuesday (instead of Wednesday) post this week in honor of TOMS One Day Without Shoes! While I’m sure many of you are aware of the initiative given this will be their seventh annual event, for those of you who may not be familiar, participants go shoeless throughout the day in order to raise global awareness for impoverished children’s health and education. While there is no single solution for the complex issues surrounding poverty, TOMS believes “shoes play an important role in helping keep children healthy, educated, & moving toward opportunities for a better future.”



In effort to raise further awareness of the event, I’m giving away a leather bound TOMS travel journal in your choice of brown or black. A perfect keeper for all those beautiful creative ideas you all have so often. To enter, simply check out the event details or ways to participate then comment below with how you may get involved this year or next!
*So sorry, this giveaway is limited to U.S. readers only. Entries must be posted by this Friday, May 2nd at 11:59 p.m. EST. Winner will be chosen at random, contacted via email after comments close, then announced at the bottom of this post.(Congratulations Rachel Ridings from Denver on being our lucky winner this round!)

    I am part of the Downtown Akron Partnership Emerging Leaders, and I think it would be awesome if we could get a group of people together to do this next year. We could plan on doing it on a day that we are putting on an outside event where we can help promote One Day Without Shoes! :)

      That’s a great idea Andrew! It would be perfect for one of Akron’s spring music or art festivals in one of the local parks. Less pavement, the better. ;) I’m looking through the city’s event calendar now and I had no idea Akron had so many amazing events to offer this summer! Pretty sad I missed out on some of these.

    It is so sad that in Cleveland April 29th is not guaranteed to be above freezing :-P

    Too late to really do anything this year except wear my TOMS sunglasses on my drive home, marking it in my calendar for next year though!

      Yeah I certainly didn’t go the ENTIRE day without shoes. TOMS emphasizes even a shoeless hour can raise awareness, whether it be a coffee break, yoga, or walk around the neighboring park.

    If New York wasn’t so dirty I’d go shoe-less all day! I do plan on doing a workout in bare feet later tonight!

      Haha yeah the streets of New York take One Day Without Shoes to a whole new level. I would stick to shoeless reps at the gym Aaron. ;)

    Coffee break without shoes.

      That was the tactic I took Manda!

    Hmmm, I think I might just take my dog on a walk without shoes. Me, not my dog. Well not him either. Heck, maybe we will carry some flip flops in my purse and walk to dinner and not put on shoes til I get to where I’m eating!

      Haha! Yes, our canine friends represent everyday. Way to go girl! Glad you could find little ways to get involved this year. :)

    Wow, what a fantastic initiative! I think shoes are so much more important than we give it credit for.
    One day without shoes for me!

      Couldn’t agree more Kelly. I had no idea what an impact they made until I got involved with the initiative last year. Thanks for the support dear!
