When we started making mens socks, one of our primary goals was to give back to the neighborhood in which we lived.
Because of our commitment to strengthening communities and nurturing families, we have started to work with Philadelphia's People's Emergency Center (PEC) here in the United States. PEC provides over 235 affordable housing properties, parenting, early childhood education, technology courses, financial education, career training, and life skills for homeless women who have children. PEC is a non-profit organization. For the families that come to PEC for help, the organization aims to motivate them to attain long-term financial and home security.
In Canada, we collaborated with Brands For Canada, a non-profit organization whose mission is to reduce poverty and inequality through the usage of commodities. A portion of Philosockphy's revenue from mens sock subscriptions and leftover inventory was donated to Brands For Canada.
It is a way to show your love for your community and give back to those in need by wearing Philosockphy’s mens work socks or by signing up for a mens sock subscription.
So now that you know what we do in terms of giving back, we thought it was important for you to see why we do it and what reasons there are for people to give back.
Make an Impact
We know we already make an impact with our fabulous men's dress socks, but there are other ways to do this too. Do you want to make a genuine, long-term change in the world? Unlike other parts of life that you may not be able to control, giving back to the community enables you to pick where and how you want to make a difference. It's simple to get motivated by a cause you care about, and it's satisfying to witness your immediate effect.
Giving Back Benefits the Most Vulnerable
Often the individuals in society who are most in need are the most disregarded. Society and governments aren't built up to protect everybody who needs it. Charitable organizations are here to fill the gaps and give dedicated resources to aid those who need the most. When we're able to give back because of our customers' choice to purchase a mens sock subscription, we can help those who can't help themselves. We're in a privileged position, and we want to use it.
We Can Get Closer to an Ideal Society
In a perfect world, there would be no need for charitable organizations to exist. Imagine living in a society where no child ever went hungry or was subjected to abuse. No animals were hurt, in which all illnesses could be treated or cured, in which everyone was treated gently and fairly, and in which everyone had the same possibilities in life. That is the goal that all of our combined efforts are striving toward. And if we want actual change, we have to put in the effort, but we can't accomplish it ourselves. You buying men's socks means we can offer contributions that enable charitable organizations to strive toward the goal of building a society that is beneficial to everyone and leaves no one behind.
You Help Make A Difference
You are helping to make a genuine difference in the world whenever you choose to contribute to a charitable organization, regardless of how large or little that organization may be. Because of the generosity of individuals like yourself, charitable organizations can carry out the essential job that they do. And when you give to a charity that supports a cause that matters to you, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that the choice you made to give has a real and positive effect on the lives of the people the charity assists. If all that came from buying men's work socks, why not?
You Can Meet New People
Are you interested in expanding your network or discovering others who share your interests? One of the best ways to get to know new people is to give back somehow; perhaps you could volunteer. A local club or group may bring you face to face with individuals directly in your town, and it's simple to form bonds with people when you have the same interest or goal. You have the potential to create enduring connections with people that you may not have otherwise come across in the course of your day-to-day activities.
Develop Your Own Interests
Giving back is a great way to discover what you like and what you don't. For example, if you're thinking about changing careers, consider doing some volunteer work first to see if you like it. If you hadn't volunteered first, you might not have discovered that an area completely unrelated to your original plan is a far better match for you.
Every person has some kind of knowledge or experience that may be useful to others. Giving back is an excellent opportunity to pass these skills on to the community, whether or not you feel as if you are making the most of your skills and abilities in your day-to-day life. Get involved in your community and use your abilities to assist others in need. It's possible that you'll be astonished at how much your own skills improve when you teach others and share what you know.
Take the Lead
A strong leader is often the single most crucial component of a successful endeavor. If you come across a cause that needs further support or a community that lacks a leader, step up and take charge! The ability to share one's passion, values, and sources of inspiration with others is one of the main reasons, so many people find leadership personally fulfilling. When you assume a leadership position, in addition to the responsibilities that come with it, you also have the potential to mold the environment around you according to your preferences.
You can make a difference in your own life by making a difference in the places where you work, live, and play. You and your loved ones will be safer and healthier if you live in a community with a good quality of life.
