Today I want to share with you something AWESOME. A simple yet incredibly meaningful way for families and groups of friends to rally together to help those in need. I had not heard of Socktober prior to this year, and I thought maybe you hadn’t either, so I’ve got a few details to share and then I’m hoping you’ll hop over to the Socktober website to learn more on how you can help too.
“Every night in the United States, an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets. This October, SoulPancake and Kid President want 2 million people to prove that even the smallest acts of love, like donating a pair of socks, can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless.” – Socktober
“Socktober was launched by Kid President creator Brad Montague four years ago. It’s a movement to get kids and grown-ups to help the homeless in an easy, fun way. Last year, more than 10,000 schools, families, businesses, and churches rallied together to bring Socktober to life. People from every state and continent have taken part in Socktober!” – Socktober
Let’s hear from Kid President himself to explain the rest: 😉
I am excited to get involved with this for the first time this year! I am thinking this is the perfect way to help my ten year old daughter take her mission to help the homeless to the next level 🙂 Let me know in the comments if you plan to help out too!
