I know many people who live down south that love going barefoot, but not in this type weather. A Kentucky man is going barefoot for an entire year to raise awareness for shoeless children around the world. Richard Hudgins explains in Oddity Central, “For 365 days I’m going to wear no shoes to collect new shoes and raise money to buy shoes for children who have never had the luxury of owning a pair. At the end of the year I’m going to take all of the money that I’ve raised and talk to as many shoes companies as I can. Hopefully, I can raise enough money that they really really want it and they’ll make a contribution as well.”
Hudgins, wanted to give up on his first day until he started seeing donations coming in, “That really inspired me and I said I’m going to keep doing it, I’m going to keep going.”
Over 300 million children are without shoes. Hudgins goal is $25,000.
