New to Sexy Socks? Then you might not know that we are on a mission to make a difference in South Africa. For every pair of socks sold, we give a pair of school socks to a child in need and with your incredible support, we are in the process of giving away 13,000 pairs of socks to the kids who need them the most.
13,000 pairs of socks…
So far we have managed to visit and donate to the following seven schools in 2017. We are also thankful that we were able to donate 2,000 pairs to victims of the Hout Bay fire, an event that truly rocked our Cape Town community.
- Buren High
- Sinenjongo High School
- Bloubergrand High
- Khozi Primary
- Inkwenkwezi Secondary School
- Robinvale High School
- Atlantis Secondary School
Our sock drops are the highlight of our one-for-one business, because they provide us with a platform to talk directly to the children we meet about social entrepreneurship. If we can inspire just one child to become a social entrepreneur, it will be worth thousands and thousands of socks.
What can I do to make South Africa a better place?
Even if the students we meet don’t go on to run their own businesses, we hope to inspire them to become agents for change from within the organisations they work for and teach them that they can help transform everyday businesses into ‘profit with a purpose’ businesses. Every time they put on their pair of socks, we encourage them to ask – ‘What can I do to make South Africa a better place?’
So, no matter where you are in the world, your support of Sexy Socks is making a tangible difference to someone’s life. And for that, we can never thank you enough.
