A comfortable pair of socks might not seem like a luxury, but it could change a homeless person’s life.
Socks are the most requested item at homeless shelters. They’re also among the things in shortest supply. Unlike most items in our wardrobe, we tend to wear our socks until they’re beyond repair, at which point they’re of no use to anyone.
That simple fact was the driving force behind Socks & Souls, the sock company built around the “buy one, give one” principle. We donate a pair of socks for every pair we sell — to the tune of tens of thousands of pairs given away so far.
The impact of a fresh, clean pair of socks can not be stressed enough. According to UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine, the homeless walk an average of 10 miles daily. Exposure to the elements can lead to infections and other health issues.We want to help that - and you can help as well: especially this holiday season. When you purchase through us, you can rest assured that there will be a lot of people feeling the holiday spirit with the delivery of our socks to the shelters. Together, we can change the world one pair of socks at a time!
