As you may have read in our National Parks post, we here at MapQuest are an active bunch. We love the outdoors. We keep busy with hikes and bikes and exploring our neighborhoods. And because of this, we also know the value of a good pair of shoes or, conversely, we know what we love to do would be so hard to do shoeless. Today is the TOMS “One Day Without Shoes.” It’s one, big national pledge to go barefoot and raise awareness of the impact a pair of shoes can have on a child’s life.
You can help MapQuest and AOL reach the goal of spreading the One Day Without Shoes message to 1,000,000 people by taking one (or more) of the following actions:
- Tweet your support (#withoutshoes)
- Visit http://impact.aol.com/toms to take the pledge and take ‘em off today
To thank those who are getting footloose, AOL will be awarding 100 $50 TOMS gift cards to random winners. See official rules here.
We hope by taking off our own, you’ll do the same!
