National Barefoot Day (presumably in USA but I'll be barefoot in UK on that day anyway) is June 1st.
The most respected article directory on the internet is EzineArticles, and Chris Knight is the public face of EzineArticles. Today he put out the following tweet, which I take issue with:
"Our team will be doing a local shoe drive to benefit @Soles4Souls + we'll be celebrating National Barefoot Day June 1st to bring awareness." https://twitter.com/#!/ChrisKnight/status/69049422570467329
Soles4Souls description is: "Changing the World One Pair at a Time® by partnering with Businesses, Orgs. & Individuals to collect & distribute 14 million pairs of shoes worldwide"
"Chris, your National Barefoot tweet doesn't make sense. Feet, posture & balance are healthier unshod, so why distribute shoes??" https://twitter.com/#!/ishabluebell/status/69146486549647360
If you're on twitter and agree with me, you might like to join the fray!
