You’ve all heard about the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy and perhaps you’ve wondered how you can help. Well, here’s an opportunity. It’s called Socks for Sandy, and it’s a quick way to let the survivors know that we care.
You know the feeling you get when your feet are cold and slip on a pair of warm socks? Or you can warm your hands and head while outside by wearing gloves and a hat? That feeling of warmth, of comfort, is something we take for granted. For the victims of Hurricane Sandy, it is a feeling we want to give back to them.
A fellow blogger, Laura Khulmann from The Shed and a member of Hometalk, had the idea of providing warm socks for the survivors of the hurricane.
Luckily Laura, who lives in Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey, was fortunate that her neighborhood was spared with only minor damage. But just a few miles down the road, entire areas were wiped out. Laura couldn’t stop thinking about something her sister-in-law (who was volunteering at the local hurricane shelter) told her. She said people were walking around barefoot and just wanted a pair of dry socks. Laura couldn’t get the image of warm, dry socks out of her head. She wanted to collect some warmth for the victims. So she shared her idea with fellow blogging friends on Hometalk and we embraced the idea.
Or, another option to help is below.
I’m going to hit my local dollar store tomorrow for packages of socks. Won’t you help us spread the warmth?
