Project Pengyou is partnering with TOMS Shoes for the launch of their annual One Day Without Shoes campaign, a global push to build awareness about the difficulties of life without shoes by bringing together student groups from across the planet to simultaneously walk #withoutshoes and show support. This is TOMS inaugural year in China, and we are excited to offer the Pengyous network in Beijing and students US-China exchange programs a chance to take part!
On Thursday, May 21 we will walk with a Pengyou (#Pengyouswithoutshoes) from campuses across Beijing, convening in Wudaokou to raise awareness together. Living life without shoes greatly hinders a children’s access to education, healthcare, and more. There will also be a rare opportunity for Pengyous to meet TOMS founder, Blake Mycoskie and connect with new Pengyous from other study abroad programs and universities!
