Well it has certainly been a lot of work to get here, but we are now live. Phew! Now the real odd sock journey is beginning, one that I hope you can join me on. Making a difference one sock at a time.
What started as a heap of odd socks has turned into something with purpose and meaning. Although that pile of odd socks is still there. It will probably still be there in 10 years time. Maybe there is a pair in there somewhere, who knows. But for now I am happy to pick 2 at random at the start of the day and wear them with pride. It is a different, unique combination each day, and I embrace it.
We are all different, and that’s what makes us the same. Its a bit of a tongue twister I know, but it is true. And we should not be afraid of that, we should not feel scared to be ourselves. Unfortunately acceptance is not always the case, and anti bullying will be one of the topics we will be exploring. Our identity is an important part of who we are, and sometimes it is hard to figure out who we are or why we feel like we do. Which brings us to another topic we will be discussing, our mental health. In fact it is ‘Mental Health Awareness Week’ right now in America, and I wish all the groups over there helping explore mental health the best of luck.
I digress… Socks, lots of them. The aim will be to grow our product base over the next few years, with more exclusive designs planned, some with new identity themes. I would like to thank you in advance for your support, and would like to especially like to thank the people who have put up with me talking socks all day whilst planning this. You know who you are, and I could not have done it without you.
Lets do this.
