Charity | Socks & Chocs

"Lots of people doing a bit is better than a few doing a lot"
Socks & Chocs.
Hi Guys!
Hope your all well?
Today I have decided to bring you a blog post about an amazing charity that was brought to my attention at the Pride of Birmingham Awards (don't worry folks that post is coming soon!).
One thing I have a weird obsession with buying and have a somewhat huge collection of is socks..
Gareth & Mom are always telling me "You have enough socks!"
And Deep Down I know I do,but every other shopping trip tends to end up like this...
And as the weather gets colder this obsession seems tends to hit its peak as I hate having cold feet.
Don't we all?
So Imagine if you were homeless,out in this cold and wet weather without anything - even the basics like socks?
That's what made Ian Northcott set up Socks & Chocs which is a inititave that provides the homeless with basic home comforts at christmas.
Socks & Chocs currently sends out donations of socks chocolate sleeping bags to homeless charity's in Birmingham,Coventry,Worcester & Wolverhampton.
And last year they donated approx 8500 pairs of socks and 3500 pieces of chocolate in addition to 229 sleeping bags
This Year?
They have a target of 10000 socks !
I remember being younger and my Mom & Dad would also try and help the homeless by giving them sleeping bags,hot drinks and food and things so when Ian started talking about Socks & Chocs at Pride of Brum it made me think... Why did I stop?
So here it is.
All of us bloggers are forever uploading reviews of beautiful things we own,but how about we give back ?
I would love for as many of you who can to take part in this project and try and help homeless people in your local area too!

 Stay Safe & Speak Soon.
