Sock Soldiers with a Soul

We believe that as a business and as individuals, we need to contribute to the community, do something good by leveraging how we are positioned, i.e. charitable folks with a huge inventory of designer socks. We are pursuing one cause, one charity for-a-month format. We might also design socks that carry the logo or insignia of the charity to gather more support and viewership. The idea is to participate and spread the word that being responsible, caring for others can be fun. This is not just giving back to the community but also highlighting the fact that charity is not a burden – a misconception that many people carry. We are trying to create more opportunities for donations but we never ask for funds—this is up to the beneficiary cause/institution. We do our bit by contributing with happy socks, creating a participation buzz and boost the cause!
