Just three weeks ago, I started a campaign centered around World Down Syndrome Day to raise awareness and funds for The National Association for Down Syndrome (NADS), which is our local support group here in Chicago. I was approached by We Help Two, which sells these funky socks online. With each pack purchased, We Help Two donates 60% to NADS. On top of this, We Help Two also donates a pair of thermal socks which Nick and I will be taking to our local homeless shelter. My son Nick is 23 years old, he has Down syndrome and autism.
We have exciting news to share. After just three weeks in this campaign, we raised $513.00 for The National Association for Down Syndrome! In addition, 57 people will receive warm socks at our local homeless shelter.
A special thanks to We Help Two for a WONDERFUL campaign. It was super easy to set online, and the socks are shipped and at your door in two days! I highly recommend this company. We Help Two partners with schools, organizations, individuals and non-profits to make twice the difference. They are truly making a difference by raising funds for organizations, and giving back to the community, with thermal sock donations to local homeless shelters. What an impact they make, by helping two ways!

The Kelley family hosted a “Socktober” campaign to raise funds to bring their newest family member home from China. This is their third international adoption and through the sale of funky socks we were able to help them raise $1288.00 towards their adoption fees, 143 pairs of socks will be donated to Room in the Inn.
"We loved working with WeHelpTwo. Not only was it an easy and fun fundraiser for our adoption expenses, but the WeHelpTwo staff we're amazingly kind and helpful. The socks are great quality and the give back socks are just as nice, if not better which is so important since socks are one of the things the homeless community need the most. Super fun socks, money for your mission and quality socks for donating...WeHelpTwo is a triple threat." The Kelley Family
The choir students from White Oak Independant School District were able to use the "Socktober" Campaign to raise money for their personal choir accounts, the students were able to collectively raise over 1,300 to use toward camp, and other events. They were able to partner with another organization and use the 145 pairs of winter socks to put together care packages for the homeless in their community.
