Homelessness hits people of all races and religions, it hits adults, it hits children, it hits people in Ohio and every other state here in our country and beyond.
The above picture of socks is yet another way to help Homeless People.
- Homeless are employed to process orders from this company
- When you buy socks, it's a buy one give one opportunity. The 3 pairs I purchased means the Company, Mitscoots donated 3 pairs of socks to local shelters.
- I got a discount purchasing these socks by donating my steps.
If you walk, or run you too can donate steps/points to help homeless around the country, not just those we help here on Bridge and Beyond. Many of you don't knit and crochet in summer, so this is perhaps a way you can still be involved when time is tight because you're spending quality time with your loved ones. Almost everyone is more active in summer months then cold winter months. Turn it into a win win situation. Buy socks and donate socks all at the same time. The footies on the right are considered "atheletic socks while the blue are more day to day.
I have a Fitbit.
I have my Fitbit linked to Earndit Earndit turns ones steps/miles/walking/running etc...(ones activity) into points. These points can be used for discounts on purchases. Most of the options for the purchases are on health food related to activity/sports and or clothes for the same purpose; but they also have options to turn your steps/points into charity. I've been able to support clean water for those in need in Haiti, Toys for Children Battling Cancer, and Socks for Homeless through my steps.
Keep in mind you don't need to have a fitbit and use points, the socks can be purchased outright, and they give discounts to most new customers. Oddly enough, I noticed their ad here on my blog through adsense this morning as I sat down to type this up.
Some of you know I've been dealing with arthritis in my knee, thus my quest to be more active and reduce the pain and swelling. I've lost weight, reduced the pressure on my knees, and am feeling much better...AND in the process I'm able to continue our mission of helping others. I've linked Mitscoots so you can check out this marvelous company, my Fitbit and my Earndit profile pages. If you'd like to connect there, please let me know. If you have questions how it all works, sing out, I'll do my best to help you.
This is also a marvelous way for someone who doesn't knit or crochet to help. Please help spread the word and let's do our best to help those less fortunate then us.
All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.
