    The campaign is spreading, bigtime!

    As part of the global day of protest there'll be a demo outside the Department of Health in Whitehall.

    I won't be able to attend in person, but my shoes will! I don't have any to spare but I'll buy some from a local charity shop and mail them.

    @JaimeS , there aren't any instructions for the shoes, apart from an address to mail them to. Do we have to send our name or anything?

    There is a link to a form to fill in in conjunction with sending the shoes, I guess this gathers that information?

    Doh! You're right - it asks some useful questions.

    Don't know - I'm not involved with it. It went out in an #MEA email, geographically targeted to UK PWME, I think - so those people who subscribe to the #MEA emails - and I'd hope all the UK orgs do - would get it. Beyond that, it's anybody's guess!

    Actually, coming back to this - @JaimeS - I can see where to send the shoes and can see the questions on the online form but what do we put in the parcel with our shoes? Our name? Tied to the shoes, somehow? Or are names just going to be randomly assigned to shoes?

    Not at all, Sasha! There is a form you should fill out with your information, (for the D.C. protest) and then put a little slip of paper with name (or however you identified yourself on the form) that you should put with your shoes so that we can match forms to shoes.

    I'm not sure how it's being done for the U.K. protest, who are also shoe-ing. :)

    A reminder that the time for sending your shoes is getting close.

    Send UK shoes by May 21, 2016.
