Kid President wants to sock it! Sock what, you say. Homelessness. According to Kid President on SoulPancake, every night in the United States an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets. So this October, even though we are getting a late start, we want to help SoulPancake and Kid President by participating in the Socktober sock drive. He wants 2 million people to participate to prove that even the smallest acts of love, like donating a pair of socks, can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless.
Did you know that San Diego rates third in the nation for homeless people. There are approximately 10,000 homeless people right now in San Diego.
We’re going to collect socks for a couple of weeks and then donate them to a shelter. We’ll post our progress right here on our blog.
We really liked the 3 questions that can change the world that Kid President asks in this video too. We’ thought we’d post them here on our blog to see what other kids around the world think:
1. What are you not okay with?
2. What do I have?
3. What can we do about it?
