Barefoot Day is our campaign to raise awareness for the inequities around the world. It is our aim to awaken social responsibility and highlight the essential work still needed to meet the United Nation's Millennium Development Goals across developing and emerging nations by 2015.
It is said to walk a day in someone else's shoes is to experience their perspective, the irony is, those who need our help the most, walk barefoot every day and live in extreme poverty. Therefore the 15th of every month, until the year 2015, will be marked by our sacrifice to walk barefoot for one day. Through joining us in walking barefoot for a day, you will be helping to raise awareness in tackling the adversities faced by underprivileged communities in poverty-stricken countries all around the world.
Walk barefoot for a day to show your support and win the chance to walk barefoot on the beautiful beaches of Cancun, Mexico.
Your sacrifice will help our journey towards global prosperity.

Supporting the United Nations Millennium Development Goals
More than 10 years ago, 189 nations of the UN made a promise and global leaders pledged to 'spare no effort to free our fellow men, women and children from the abject and dehumanising conditions of extreme poverty.' It was a promise with eight goals adopted and a deadline of 2015 materialized in the form of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
As 2015 approaches, increasing global uncertainties such as the economic crisis, extreme natural disasters and climate change have led to many of the targets being derailed and put off-track.
We can help. These challenges are widely ignored or remain unnoticed to those living in the developed world yet they affect all of us. Awareness is a major issue. As an example, the current lack of awareness affects the immediate relief and assistance required in response to natural disasters and calamities of any kind, as most recently seen in the devastating Pakistani floods and monsoons of 2010 and 2011. The scale of the devastation is hard to imagine. The 2010 flooding alone is a larger humanitarian disaster than hurricane Katrina, the Japanese earthquake and the South-East Asian tsunami combined.
