If you're a regular reader here at Anna Savanna you'll probably have noticed I am likely to include a nail varnish as part of any fashion or beauty post. I'm obsessed with the stuff. Which is strange, given that I only wear it on my tootsies as I can't tolerate the sight of it on my fingernails. But I haven't admitted defeat just yet: I am still seeking the perfect shade, that colour that makes me look like one of those polished hands that gets hundreds of thousands of repins on Pinterest:

Anyway, I digress. The reason I'm writing this post is because very soon we are all going to have the chance to strip off our shoes and show off our pedicures as we roam barefoot for one whole day! All for a good cause, of course.

April 10 is One Day Without Shoes, a global campaign from TOMS to raise awareness of the millions of children at risk for disease and infection as they grow up without shoes.

Nail polish brand essie has teamed up with TOMS in support of the campaign which has attracted support from celebrities such as Charlize TheronDemi Moore, Olivia Wilde, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, to name a few. The latest celebrity to lend their toes to the campaign is Stacy Keibler, George Clooney's leading lady whom I think bears a striking resemblance to two of Australia's belles de jour - click here to see what I am talking about.
