VANCOUVER, BC, November 24, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Friendship Socks is proud to announce its first ever charity collaboration in partnership with WE Charity to create two limited edition pairs of socks with 50% of profits going to benefit children's education in Kenya.
Friendship Socks, the social sock gifting company that lets you send a gift through social media, is dedicated to connecting friends around the world to make a positive impact. This collaboration with WE Charity is an opportunity for both brands to enact change and inspire consumers to send a gift that gives back this season.
Launching online in November 2017, the brand collaboration will span the holiday season and the new year. The limited-run styles will also be available as a gift with purchase to the first 50 customers that visit the WE Store at CF Toronto Eaton Centre or CF Rideau Centre. This brick and mortar launch will introduce the product over the holiday season for customers shopping in store.
The first collaboration collection will feature classic styles by the Friendship Socks design team that integrate elements of WE's branding. There will be two sock options available in cream and navy blue.
"At Friendship Socks, we couldn't be more proud to partner with a charity like WE that shares in so many of our core values. Working closely together on this project to impact the lives of children in Kenya is a dream of ours, and I think the unique sock styles reflect that," said Friendship Socks Co-Founder Marc Herman.
"This holiday season, we are delighted and grateful to collaborate with Friendship Socks, to connect friends around the world, while creating positive change in the lives of others," said Craig Kielburger, co-founder of WE. "Together, we are celebrating the holidays in a unique way, creating lasting memories with friends both near and afar, and most importantly, supporting the
education of children in Kenya."
The socks will be exclusively sold online at http://www.friendshipsocks.com. Customers can choose to buy a pair for themselves and give a pair to a friend, or simply gift a pair.
This is the first of many future collaborations between WE Charity and Friendship Socks, and the two organizations are seeking an ongoing partnership for social change.
