Every night in the United States an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets. This October, we're partnering with Urban Peak Colorado Springs to prove that even the smallest acts of love, like sharing a poem or donating a pair of socks, can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless.
Through Socktoberfest, we not only get to provide our homeless friends with hope and encouragement through poetry, but we also get to meet their physical needs by providing them with socks and other resources. Bring your items to Socktoberfest!
Even if you're not based in Colorado Springs, you can still help us give hurting humans hope through Socktoberfest by submitting a poem of encouragement. Your poem will be shared with the homeless friends we help in our community!
