More about Sox Box
“In our quest to bring the world great socks we keep always mindful of the sacrifice of those who made this happen. No, we don’t mean our blood, sweat and tears, which count for something to our moms.
We honor those service men and women who sacrifice their lives in the name of freedom and justice. Their pledge and honor for their fellow service members and country is unparalleled and for that we must both rock and salute them! Our pledge is the lifetime donation of 20% of all Sox Box profits to the Independence Fund, a non-profit group that directly supports the wounded ill and injured service members. Silliness abounds at the Sox Box but we remain serious in our commitment to our brothers and sisters who gave the most for their country without question.”
