Our goal is for all donations to happen Nov 15th - 24th. However, if those days don’t work out for you and/or the hospital, that’s okay!

Given the rise of the delta variant, we recommend waiting until late Sept. to reach out to your hospital contact.

Please let us know once you've confirmed your donation date.

Here are some potential talking points for your captions

General Info

  • Resilience Gives has a giveback model! So when you buy socks or shirts, they match it by donating socks or gowns to children in the hospital.
  • For families in the hospital, small things like a good pair of socks or just knowing that other families have been through it, can make a big difference.
  • The socks are designed by pediatric cancer warriors, so each style is unique to a particular family's cancer journey.

About the donation

  • This fall, our family is participating in the Socks with Stories Paying It Forward Initiative where families like ours donate socks and gowns to our local children's hospital.
  • The goal this year is to donate 5,000 pairs of socks and 1,000 gowns.
  • You can support the initiative by buying socks or shirts.

About the socks

  • Socks with Stories have non-slip bottoms that are super grippy and don’t fall off. They're great for preventing falls on hardwood floors at home and in the hospital.
  • We like to wear them when we go in for check-ups, but they're honestly great for the home too.
  • They have SUPER cozy/fuzzy socks for winter, and breathable ones for warmer weather.
  • They come in toddler through adult sizing.
