Mornington Peninsula Leader
2 Pairs Each
Imagine being homeless and wearing the only clothes you have. If you ever wash your clothes, you only have one pair of socks so your feet are cold while your socks dry. Imagine if we could collect 50,000 pairs of socks so that every one of the 23,000 homeless people in the Mornington Peninsula area and Victoria as a whole could have 2 pairs of socks each. Imagine if we had a business eg bank in every suburb and town who could have a box for collection. Imagine helping educate families about this

The $1,000 grant will be used
The $1,000 grant will be used for postage, envelopes, and website design. We will write to schools, businesses, sock manufacturers and not for profit organisations already working with the homeless.
How they raise the rest of the funding
We will appeal to family and friends and facebook followers. If every family at local schools, churches and companies gave a pair of socks each, we would have them in no time at all.
