As young college students aspiring to be entrepreneurs, Filip Pejic and Sergey Sapelnyk have been searching for the right opportunity to get their hands dirty and experience entrepreneurship. They decided to merge two worlds that they’re incredibly passionate about, style and social impact, to create something special.
Society Socks are the ultimate blend of craftsmanship and style. They turn the traditional understanding of socks inside out and create products that help people express their individuality. Society Socks supports the notion that socks shouldn’t be dull and colorless, but bold and expressive.
Socks are the least donated, but most needed clothing item. Since homeless shelters only accept new socks, it’s much more difficult to donate them compared to other used clothing. Society Socks will help change this.
Society Socks is all about fostering a community of people that care about each other’s well-being. A gesture as small as donating one pair of socks to charity leads the way to a better society. A pair of socks is a small stepping stone towards greater change. All we need to do is set the gears in motion.
One the most effective ways to drive change is through social entrepreneurship. From this, the Society Socks pair for pair model was born. With every pair of socks that is purchased, another pair will be donated to charity. Society Socks is currently working with the Covenant House, an organization providing care to homeless youth. Their mission is as follows:
To serve suffering children of the street, and protect and safeguard all children - with absolute respect and unconditional love.
Society Socks hopes to continue to provide socks to more and more charities as the organization grows. Let's change the world together. Get your pair of socks now.
