Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: what are you doing for others?”
Barefoot for Bare Feet is a movement of groups and individuals committed to involving others in accomplishing the goals of Samaritan’s Feet. This effort involves thousands of coaches, business leaders, teachers, pastors, entertainers and many more using their platforms by performing their jobs or various activities barefoot to provide a voice for the 300,000,000 million children who walk every day in their bare feet. From across the nation, college, high school, and community coaches are coaching games in their bare feet and influencing university students and faculty to get involved and help make a difference. Governors from several states and business leaders have gone barefoot to work to help bring awareness to this cause. These volunteers organize and participate in barefoot activities, walks, and games throughout the U.S. to make people aware of the needs of others around the world. They are people from all walks of life making the bold statement that we can no longer sit idle and ignore the growing needs of others.
The Barefoot for Bare Feet movement has been vital to the ability of Samaritan’s Feet to collect shoes and raise funds for mobilization and operation. The passionate volunteers who make these events happen have been responsible for changing thousands of lives.
