Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines can celebrate diversity by participating in Different Shoe Day on February 22. This fun activity encourages girls (and adults) to demonstrate their commitment to accepting and valuing others by wearing two different shoes to school, to work, or to play. This symbolic gesture may cause an onlooker to ask why you are wearing two different shoes. This opens an opportunity to communicate the importance of valuing people of all cultures, all ethnic groups, all races, and all abilities. Participating in any of the Different Shoe Day activities can do so much to spread positive feelings of goodwill and acceptance. We can make a difference in our neighborhood and our community. It’s truly a “step” in the right direction!
