Awesome socks designed by grade schoolers. Every sock purchased gives art supplies to schools in need.
Online PR News – 20-April-2016 – Boston, MA – Giving back to the local community and students in need has never been easier. A team from Harvard Business School has partnered with three Massachusetts schools to help drive social change through socks. The Giving Sock identifies underfunded schools and offers students at those schools an opportunity to showcase their creativity by drawing their favorite items. Those drawings are then printed on high quality socks available for purchase on www.givingsock.com. Once a purchase is made, The Giving Sock contributes at least half of its profits in the form of art supplies to the school in need.
“When our team started to brainstorm for our class project, our biggest priority was creating a company focused on giving back to the community” Yi Xie, The Giving Sock’s co-founder and current student at Harvard Business School.
The real stars though are the “artists”, young children who use their boundless creativity to come up with all the designs. Behind each product, you can see the entire story such as the school that will be receiving the donations, how your purchase helps fund each child’s dream, and the uniqueness of each artist on the “Meet the Artists” webpage.
With school partnerships already established, products quickly selling out, and immediate positive impacts being felt around the Boston community, The Giving Sock is the do good, feel good business of the year. You can get more information at www.givingsock.com, or The Giving Sock’s Facebook Page.
