We would like to highlight from time to time companies that we think share similar values to our mission statement. First on the list is a company started by a classmate of ours, Mario '07. Check out his SockWorks company if you need some new threads for your feet...and also would like to have some of your proceeds contributed to a good cause.
From their website:
At Sockwork, we give you the best sock subscription available. Our sock subscription gives you the perfect mix, great prices and customization. We provide Men's, Women's, and Kids' Sock Subscriptions and a Men's Boxer Brief subscription.
Tina and I started this company as a way to combine two of our passions: supporting our Veterans and wearing awesome socks. Our first passion, helping Veterans, is important because we've seen first hand how difficult and time consuming it is for veteran charities to raise money. I'm a West Point graduate and former Army Officer and Tina's sister served in the Army with me.
We hope our sock subscription service will help to pioneer a new business model amongst veteran entrepreneurs where we all support veteran charities to keep a constant source of funding going to America's heroes who need it most. At Sockwork, we donate 10% of our profits to a different veteran charity each month. Our hope is that donations to these non-profits will steadily rise through our own success and the addition of new businesses adopting our model.
Join our Sock Subscription today and let us keep your sock game on point!
If you are a veteran charity interested in being sponsored, or if you are a business looking to donate to the charities we support, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We wanted to start something that had meaning and can't think of a better cause than supporting our Veterans. We hope you enjoy your Sockwork Sock Subscription”!
Mario & Tina
