Friendship Socks x WE Collaboration
We recently had the opportunity to experience something extraordinary. Our team at Friendship Socks had the honor of attending WE Day, a worldwide event that brings world-renowned speakers, A-list performers, and tens of thousands of young people together to celebrate and create impact. Hearing these inspiring stories from changemakers around the world reaffirmed our excitement for what was already underway.
We’re proud to announce that we’ve collaborated with WE Charity to create a capsule sock collection that gives the gift of education to children in Kenya. With each sale of the WE x Friendship Socks collaboration, we’re giving back 50% of our profits. That means with each pair of WE x Friendship Socks purchased, you’re helping a child in Kenya get the education they deserve.
Who is WE?
WE Charity is an international charity and educational partner that operates collaborative programs. WE Day and WE Schools are initiatives of WE Charity educating and empowering young people. WE Schools is an educational program giving students the tools to create social change. WE Day events are stadium-sized events celebrating youth making a difference worldwide.
In Africa, Asia and Latin America, WE partners with communities to implement WE Villages, a holistic, five-pillar international development model designed to achieve sustainable change.
What are WE
We’re donating our profits to WE Villages, which supports community development in areas where there is a high incidence of child labor, exploitation of children and minimal opportunities for girls. Together with local leaders and families, WE transforms lives with adaptive, long-term solutions.
Friendship Socks x WE supports education in Kenya. According to the UN, almost 60 million children aren’t in school. Some have to help take care of siblings and collect water; others have to work to support their family; some live too far from school; others can’t afford to pay for school fees.
Because education is so important, it’s the cornerstone of the WE Villages model. When children are educated, they're armed with the courage and self-confidence to better themselves, their communities, and the next generation. They learn how to prevent illness, build and maintain infrastructure, understand and advocate for basic rights, and secure a livelihood. And these tools help pull communities out of the cycle of poverty.
The WE x Friendship Socks collection
At Friendship Socks, we’re about connecting and celebrating friendships around the world. We want to make a positive impact, and the best way to do that is to bring people together. When you work with people that have as much passion for changing the world as you do, anything is possible.
Our team wanted to create a collection that not only impacted change, but look great on your feet. Our design team took in all of the facets of the WE Charity, from their colors, to their rafiki's, to the way participating in a WE Day event makes you feel. Our goal was to create a sock that did just what WE does - make doing good doable.
