Comfort Socks

Dear Mobile Loaves and Fishes

I was very moved by your inclination to care for the feet of others, as our Lord Jesus taught us.
You see, I too, am moved to care for the feet of homeless people and families all over the United States. Caring for the feet of others that I may never see is what drove me to start my non-profit orgainzation, Comfort Socks.

Comfort Socks is a 501(c)3 public charity that provides new socks to homeless shelters all across the United States.
Aside from the obvious hygiene benefits of new socks for homeless people and families, our mission is one of Comfort. We believe that new socks simply feel good, and will help tend to the soul as well as the body of someone going through a difficult time.

Comfort Socks welcomes volunteers to organize sock drives and spread the word about our work.
To learn how you can help, please visit our website @ www.comfortsocksonline.org

Please follow our twitter and our blog, so you can always be up to date with what's happening.

Thank you for acting on the compassion in your heart and stepping forward to help others. Your blog story really gets down to the heart of helping others, through the humbling efforts of caring for their feet.

In His care & service

Theresa,

I love your ministry. For almost 12 years we have been delivering socks to the people on the streets. here in Austin alone we probably deliver over 100,000 pairs annually. Just out of one commissary it is 70,000 pairs. Socks are the single most popular item on the trucks. I pray the Lord continues to bless your ministry! I am following you on Twitter so be sure to follow @mlfnow back. I will RT what you are doing.

Dear Alan,

I met Duane Severance while working with Mission Possible during 2006 and 2007. I have such warm memories of his warm, familiar greeting, "Hello, Sister!" While worshiping on Tuesday nights or Under the Bridge I had many transcendent moments reminiscent of Acts 2:42 , where I just felt the veil lift and was completely at one with all the diverse souls joined together in praise.

Oh, our feet! Your example makes Jesus washing the feet of the Disciples even more poignant.

Thank you for sharing and visited Untitled this morning.

In Him,
Claire
