This campaign was started on 21 October by a lovely lady called Debbie. Our aim is to get those feet dry - shockingly the state of things are that refugees are now starting to suffer from trench foot simply because their feet aren't dry. We are sending out socks both to the front line (700 pairs send to the Greek Islands last week, another 900 this week) and also to more 'settled' camps (we priveledge the socks with messages for these camps as there is more time to read the messages as opposed to the front line where volunteers are changing people to dry clothes in the dark)
There are 3 main ways to help;
Socks with love
send new or clean used pairs of socks - you can add a personal message if you wish. Put your socks in a sealable plastic bag (one pair per sack) and either write in marker on the bag or put a piece of paper in the bag with the size (make sure we can see the size) add your message to the bag if you are putting one in. Squeeze out the air and seal the bag, pop in an envelope and send to;
Le Logis de la Roche
We all have a pile of odd socks waiting to find their pair - well now you can send to odd sock central aka me where I will pair them with similar socks (even if they are not a perfect matcg design wise they will still help keep feet dry) to send to our volunteers on the ground.
Odd socks should be sent to me at

You can also donate via paypal (you don't have to have a paypal account to do this) by clicking on the paypal donate tab on the website here. We use this money to buy bulk orders of socks to sent directly to volunteers on the ground.
