Join The Barefoot Movement Today …
Receiving your diploma or degree in your bare feet can change the life of a child forever and perhaps, even your own. That’s what happened in 2008, when IUPUI Head Basketball Coach Ron Hunter became the first coach to say “YES” to something that has changed the lives of people around the world …including his own. Instead of putting on his dress shoes for a game against Oakland University, Coach Hunter went barefoot to raise awareness for Samaritan’s Feet and the 300 million children around the world who go barefoot every day. Isn’t it amazing what happens when we choose to say “YES?”
The barefoot movement has expanded into graduation ceremonies at high schools and colleges across the country. By participating in their bare feet, students will provide a voice for the 300 million barefoot children around the world. Over 1 billon people live on less than $2.50 per day. Therefore, most people have to choose between food and clothing. By graduating in your bare feet, you can help make that decision easier for them by simply shedding your shoes and socks to create awareness and funds to distribute shoes to children in need. Many children can’t even go to school if they don’t have a pair shoes to wear.
Leave your shoes behind for graduation and stand barefoot together to bring awareness about the need; call your campuses to action and help raise shoes and funds. Become advocates for those who need our help. Students can use their platforms to make a difference for a child in need by going barefoot so that another child doesn’t have to. One pair of shoes will make a difference in the life of a child – saving them from disease and breathing life into them with love and hope.
By making a donation of $6 you will receive a zipper pull that can be worn on a graduation gown, a backpack, jacket, etc. This donation can help change the life of a child by giving him a new pair of shoes and a message of hope for his future.
