It seems that I can’t resist and opportunity for a good (or bad) pun, but I have a proposition for everyone. In a recent appearance on Good Morning Britain, Richard Armitage gave us a peek at his funky fun socks…
He also mentioned that he would like to get some socks for Christmas (I wonder if he’s prepared for the deluge of fashionable footwear that’s likely headed his way?) A funky or festive pair of socks can be a surprising energy booster. For instance…today is the last day of classes for the fall semester and I celebrated by wearing some festive holiday socks.
No one else can see them (It’s cold…I’m wearing boots!) but I know that they’re there and the thought of the sparkly gifts (there’s a little dog at the top cuff too) makes me smile throughout the day.
On the subject of socks…or maybe the lack of socks for a lot of people, Jazzy and I were talking and we thought it would be a fun side challenge to signal boost some charities that distribute socks to the needy and to decorate our own sock tree as a record.
So here’s what you do…comment here reporting a donation of socks or information about a charitable organization that distributes socks. We’ll add a pair of socks to our SpReAd the Love 2014 Sock Tree and credit a kindness to our running total.
I’ll get you started…Hannah’s Socks is an Ohio based non-profit which since 2005 has distributed over half a million pairs of socks to those in need in Western Ohio and Southeast Michigan. This is just one of many charitable organizations and shelters that operate such programs…We’d love to hear more about one in your area and add to our “sock tree”.
