Every member of your family needs socks, and if you buy them each a fun pair from the Sydney Sock Project you'll be helping Aussie communities in need. Every time you make a purchase from the company, you can choose one of 10 charities to support across areas including homelessness, mental health, education, cancer research and animal preservation. It's a win-win.
The idea for the Sydney Sock Project came about in 2018 when founder Andres Herrero discovered that the most requested items in homeless shelters are socks. He decided to design some funky socks and give back to people experiencing homelessness. Then as his products started flying off shelves, he began to form partnerships with other charitable organisations.
Sydney Sock Project products arrive in a 100% biodegradable parcel, from a 100% carbon-neutral delivery courier. All socks are made from a blend of 80% combed cotton, 17% polyester and 3% spandex, so they're soft and stretchy.
Brighten up your feet with some of these designs:
10% of the proceeds of these bee socks go to Save the Bees Australia. This is a social enterprise that aims to boost awareness of the importance of bees and raises money to ensure bees in our surrounding communities are saved from extermination.
Buy these and you can either donate another pair of warm socks to a member of the homeless community via the Exodus Foundation, donate 10% of your purchase to R U OK? to help support people with mental health issues or donate four days' worth of educational supplies to a child in need with books in homes.
Show your love of healthcare workers with these funky socks, with 10% of proceeds going to ANZGITA, a charity that's actively donating equipment and medical training to improve the gut health of people in developing Indo-Pacific nations.
Buying these cute daisy socks means 10% of the proceeds go to Friends with Dignity. This registered charity provides practical programs to assist survivors of domestic violence in collaboration with refuge and crisis centres.
When you purchase these colourful socks you'll help provide a brand new wardrobe to someone who needs it, through Thread Together. This organisation delivers new, good quality clothing and shoes to people in the community who are doing it tough. Not only do they get new clothes, but dignity and hope for a better future.
Get in early for next Christmas and you can choose to either donate a pair of warm socks to a member of the homeless community in Australia through the Exodus Foundation, donate 10% of your purchase to R U OK?, or donate four days' worth of educational supplies to a child living in remote, disadvantaged and low socio-economic circumstances through Books in Homes.
Get your stocking stuffers ready early with Christmas kangaroo socks and 10% of proceeds will be donated to the RSPCA to help mistreated, neglected, injured or surrendered animals.
