Blue Q Socks: Supporting "Doctors Without Borders" - international humanitarian aid workers who provide life-saving medical care to victims of war, disease, natural disaster, or conflict. Their founding principle is that all people deserve free, high-quality medical care regardless of nationality, religion, or creed. Of course, you’ve read about them and know they’re a dedicated and well-oiled machine. They understand the challenges of providing care in dangerous, chaotic, and remote places, and they use this know-how to respond to emergencies around the world in ways few other organizations can.
Blue Q has been an active supporter of Doctors Without Borders since 2013.
One percent of the sale for every Blue Q pair of socks supports their programs and the total donation amount so far has surpassed $1 million. It’s worth noting that Doctors Without Borders is neutral and impartial, and currently receives less than two percent government funding internationally, which means they can respond based on needs, not agendas. Individual donors make their work possible. We also respect the way Doctors Without Borders speaks out on behalf of the people they treat and act to expose injustice.
influence!: TOGETHER, LET'S IMPROVE THE LIVES OF THE HOMELESS COMMUNITY - ONE PAIR PURCHASED, ONE PAIR DONATED
It was born as a result of an alarming observation: socks are the most requested item in homeless shelters. Since we believe that every purchase is actually a vote for what the world of tomorrow will look like, we want to provide the opportunity for our customers to make the right vote. By buying influence! socks, you are contributing to the creation of a sustainable supply of socks distributed to the homeless through our non-profit partners.
The donation of socks has two benefits. Firstly, it allows us to donate socks to the homeless on a regular basis through a sustainable supply of socks financed through the profits of influence! But it doesn’t stop here. By delivering socks to non-profits we work with on a regular basis, we allow them to focus that much more on what they do best: help the homeless.
WestMister: dedicated to the design, development, and production of premium quality socks. Using recycled and organic materials exceeding the highest standards which ensure long-lasting comfort and freshness.
