Socks for Smiles

Sometimes, it’s the little things that are so important. Before we heard about Socks for Smiles, we had never thought about how “perfectly good” white socks could make a kid feel like an outsider.

Thankfully, Socks for Smiles is doing great work raising awareness and collecting fun, colorful socks for children in foster care. They’ve received so many socks (over 20,000 pairs), the office in Central Florida asked them to please find somewhere else to donate. So now, Socks for Smiles is reaching out across the country, finding areas of need for their cool service project.

If you want to help, ask your parents to log onto Facebook and search for “Socks for Smiles.”
