Make A Difference Mondays {Volume 24} Socktober!

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!

Make A Difference Mondays is a weekly linkup designed to encourage and inspire us to live each day on purpose—making a meaningful difference in someone’s life in even the smallest of ways. There will be five women regularly co-hosting this link-up that will appear on all five of our blogs and we also have three wonderful co-hosts who will fill in as guest hosts on the occasional day that a regular co-host is not able to post. Read on to learn more about our vision, mission, and how to link up!
Mission
Our mission is to provide a consistent gathering place for like-minded women to build online connections, share inspiration, and provide mutual encouragement and accountability as we seek to live intentionally and make a difference in the lives of those around us.
Vision
Every Monday we will invite bloggers to link-up any blog posts that encourage women to live life on purpose. This could include testimonies or goals from your own life, small acts of kindness or service, creative tips or ideas for showing consideration to others — the possibilities are endless. Our objective is to use our God-given time and resources to His glory!
Have you found us on facebook yet?  If not, what are you waiting for?  😉

  2. I love the Socktober thing! You inspired me to look up home-less shelters in Singapore and inquire about how I can help. Thank you! 🙂
    I am sharing a post today addressing an alarming trend I have seen that society is pushing — that in order to feel sexy they need to show off and compete. It’s something that has been a struggle for me as I battle with myself to feel self-worth!
