Today, April 5th, 2011, is officially "A Day Without Shoes", an annual campaign headed by TOMS in order to raise awareness of the millions of children in the world without even a single pair of shoes. (I've written previously about the company here). New this year, Essie has partnered with TOMS by releasing a custom nail color called, "A Day Without Blues", matching the blue hue of the TOMS flag. If you have to walk around all day without your shoes on, might as well paint those toes pretty, right?here and here.
And those are only two of the ways you can incorporate your love of fashion into your passion to give back. Plenty of other designers are participating in similar campaigns of their own, even the infamous Tory Burch!
...Saving the world one fashionable contribution at a time...
