It’s time for us to say a big thank you to you, yes you, for supporting us and being part of this crazy Sexy Socks journey. As you will know, for every pair of Sexy Socks we sell, a pair of school socks is given to a child in need. And so as the winter chill takes its fierce grip of the Cape, this month we will give 5000 pairs of school socks to kids who need them.
That’s a lot of socks
We have worked with an inspirational organisation called Mothers That Care and began this month’s sock drops on Mandela Day at De Noon Primary. Later this month we will be visiting Tygerhof Primary and Sophakama Primary. We know that one pair of socks is not going to change the world but to connect with these children and to speak to them about social entrepreneurship is something we feel is truly valuable.
Warm toes all round
We believe that social entrepreneurship has the power to effect significant change, all over the world but particularly here at home in South Africa. As Mandela put it, ‘What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.’
Thank you again for your continued support. None of this would have been possible without you. Onwards!
