NSCS Members at California State University, Long Beach participated in the worldwide event One Day Without Shoes on April 5, 2011.

Members refrained from wearing shoes for the day and met together in the evening to watch the TOMS documentary and disucss their reactions. The event is meant to highlight the children of the world who go without shoes daily and the effects it has on everything from their health to their education. Many diseases are transmitted from soil to human feet and in most countries children cannot go to school without a pair of shoes.
