Everyday, we are walking to and fro, from places to places, whether it’s for work, studies or leisure and recreational activities, we will be wearing our comfortable and beautiful shoes, heels, sandals, slippers, something that covers both our feet. Walking with shoes is now a basic necessity in our life here in Singapore, yet, it is a luxury for people who are less well off in other parts of the world, who walk barefoot because they cannot afford basic necessities beyond having a pair of shoes.
On the 2nd June 2012, Habitat-Barclays Bare Your Sole is a meaningful and noble walking event, walking barefoot for a short distance of 2.5km or 5km in Singapore on a Saturday morning in Singapore, all in the name of charity fund raising and awareness. Returning back on 2nd June 2012, to be held at the beautiful Gardens By the Bay East, Tanjong Rhu, spanned by the beautiful and gorgeous Marina Bay Waterfront behind the Gardens, Habitat-Barclays Bare Your Sole 2012 is hoping to attract more than 5,000 pairs of bare feet for Habitat-Barclays Bare Your Sole 2012, from the 4000 pairs of bare feet in 2011, do check out my walking barefoot for charity in 2011 !
Bare Your Sole 2011
It was a great humbling experience last year in 2011 to walk barefoot for a short distance, raising funds for a great and noble cause, remind myself of the blessings and opportunities that we have it here that others do not have. This would be a morning of fun for your family and friends to come together for a morning barefoot walk for a great noble cause.
By participating in this barefoot walk, YOU will help to raise funds for local and overseas beneficiaries while this event will also assist in raising awareness for Habitat for Humanity projects that build homes and fight poverty for the less fortunate across the Asia Pacific region.
