Translation Back Office Employees Go Barefoot To Support Cause

Translation Back Office, the global language services provider, spent “One Day Without Shoes” to help raise awareness for children in poverty and to support its client, TOMS Shoes.
April 12, 2011 - PRLog -- On April 5, 2011, Translation Back Office employees decided to go barefoot to participate in the world-wide event called “One Day Without Shoes.”  Translation Back Office partook in the event to support the cause in raising awareness for the millions of children in poverty that go barefoot everyday. A client of Translation Back Office called TOMS Shoes created this wonderful world-wide event and Translation Back Office proudly stood in solidarity with them.

TOMS Shoes was founded by Blake Mycoskie who, after travelling to Argentina, witnessed many children who live without shoes daily. He then created the company and the One-for-One movement to buy one pair of shoes and a pair of shoes will be donated to a child in need. TOMS Shoes then created the “One Day Without Shoes” program in order to create an experience where one can understand what it is like to walk around on dirt, rocks, and rough grounds and emphasize the need for children to have protection on their feet.

Translation Back Office found out about the event after providing marketing translation services for TOMS Shoes and translating materials for the “One Day Without Shoes” campaign  into several languages. Translation Back Office's staff was enthusiastic to join the cause. On the day of the world-wide event, a vast majority at Translation Back Office’s headquarters participated and went shoe-less. Employees expressed their interest for the occasion and for the opportunity to take part in it.

Jeff Weiser, Business Development Manager who handles the TOMS Shoes account, said, “April 5th was a great day at our office.  It was inspiring to see all of our colleagues so enthusiastic to support a great cause."

Florencia Franco, Project Manager, expressed, “When everybody took their shoes off, for several minutes the whole company was paralyzed. It was a moment for reflection. We thought of how hard everything would be if we had to do it without shoes, yet a lot of people do live like that. It’s a great idea to do something about it!”

The event truly was a success and was impactful for all. The photos of One Day Without Shoes with Translation Back Office can be viewed at Learn about “One Day Without Shoes” at
