New Socks Across America

Organized by: Tonya Christensen

Tonya's Photo


My name is Tonya Christensen and I've felt drawn to a "Sock" fund raiser for about 3 years without having put my dream into action, until now. My story: I remember going to Mexico on vacation (years ago) where this little girl of about 4, was selling me chicklets gum and I'll never forget looking down at her and seeing the horrible condition of her feet! I was saddened for days. We take our comfortable, warm feet for granted. The feeling of wanting to do something for all the unprotected feet in the world has never left me. I think of that little girl often and can see her torn feet so clearly in my mind.
My fundraiser isn't about money really, it's about wanting everyone who is reading this to mail me packages of new socks that I will then pledge to send to places across America and to third world villages. I say to myself- if Blake Mycoskie, Chief Shoe Giver of Toms, can donate shoes then I can donate socks!
The next time you go to the store, stop and buy some socks and mail them to me, please! Or feel free to donate funds and I will do the shopping! As I begin receiving these donated socks, I will start packaging them up, one box at a time and mail them out! Imagine the surprise on a little girl or boys face when they receive nice, clean, warm socks!
Mail your socks to:
Tonya Christensen
4313 SE 177th Lane, Vancouver Washington 98683
