Socks are the number one most requested clothing item at homeless shelters. When Dave Heath and Randy Goldberg learned this startling fact, they knew they needed to take action. They founded Bombas Socks, a social business that donates a pair of socks to a homeless shelter or disaster-stricken area for each pair purchased.
When we launched Bombas on The Grommet 12 months ago, they had donated socks to 45,000 people. Today, that number is over 275,000. And Bombas now works with 58 charitable partners around the globe, so the impact will keep growing.
We all put our socks on one foot at a time, but Bombas adds some meaning to the routine. Remember, your purchases can (and do) shape our world.
