Silly Socks in Photos


You still have a few days to get involved in this fun and worthwhile project. Underworks is partnering with Foodbank to get socks and essential clothing items to those most in need this July. Socks are actually one of the highest in demand but least donated items amongst the homeless community. But don't worry, no need for you to provide those socks. All you need to do is

1. Take a photo featuring socks; the sillier the better e.g. socks in thongs
2. Post on social media
3. Add the hashtag #IGiveASock and tag @underworksaustralia

AND Underworks, an Australian-owned business, will donate a clothing item on your behalf.

For the month of July, every post or story shared on social media with the hashtag #IGiveASock, one pair of socks or other essential clothing items, including underwear and thermals, will be donated to those in need.

This year's #IGiveASock has been supported by other well-known Australians, including Fifi Box, Peter Hitchener, Chrissie Swan and Sarah Tiong, who have pledged their support via social media and encouraged their followers to put their best foot forward for a good cause.

So get those fun socks out, take some photos and have that warm, fuzzy feeling of having done your part in supporting people who are doing it tough. Check out the Instagram page for inspiration.
