Point6, makers of premium merino wool socks, has partnered with Soles4Souls, a global non-profit that collects donated footwear and distributes them to people in need around the world.

“Being able to provide new socks empowers those in need and enables us to give something back,” notes Peter Duke, CEO with Point6. “Our continued partnership with non-profits like Soles4Souls ensures that our durable merino wool socks are put to good use by supporting those in need.”

Soles4Souls distributes shoes and clothing in two ways: giving directly to people in need, both in the US and overseas, and by selling to carefully selected micro-enterprise organizations in countries like Haiti where there are virtually no jobs to generate personal income. Through the
collection and sale of used (and new) clothing and shoes, Soles4Souls helps create self-sustaining jobs that generate desperately needed revenues throughout those communities.

“Point6 is a perfect partner for Soles4Souls, says Buddy Teaster, President and CEO with Soles4Souls. “They are innovative, focused and really care about making a difference. Because we put shoes on so many people’s feet, we know the importance of high quality socks. Over and over we see socks received with the same joy and gratitude as a pair of new shoes! We couldn’t be happier than working with Point6.”

This month, Point6 will donate hundreds of pairs of brand new, performance merino wool socks to Soles4Souls that will be distributed to those in need in Haiti and around the world. On October 10, 2014, the team at Point6 will also join the Soles4Souls #Barefoot4Them campaign to raise awareness for the 400 million children who live in extreme poverty. Making the choice to live one day without shoes and go barefoot represents those who have been affected by wearing inadequate footwear. Be #Barefoot4Them.
