When my friend Meghan Freeback founded Simply the Basics back in 2015, I thought it was a genius idea: she and her team provide basic hygiene essentials help homeless and low-income people. Things many of us take for granted, like clean socks, deodorant, feminine hygiene products and toothpaste. Simple things that promote dignity and self-worth.
Simply the Basics follows the belief that a person unable to meet their very basic needs (food, shelter, clothing, education, and hygiene) will be incapable of reaching greater goals like job security, sobriety, mental health, and self-actualization.
The most basic human need is to feel safe and secure, which is why I love the work Simply the Basics does every single day.
So, here is where you come in:
Donate socks to Simply the Basics so homeless people can have warm, dry feet. That’s it. Here’s a link to a six pack on sale for $14.99:
Send the socks to Simply the Basics and they’ll make sure they go to the right feet:
