There’s not a person in this world who doesn’t appreciate funky socks. Okay, that might be an overstatement, but it’s definitely true whenever you’re at Festival! But here at Festival, we like to go above and beyond by simply buying all sorts of crazy footwear. We also like to help the communities around us. And luckily, we’ve recently partnered with a wonderful organization with the very same idea. You know ‘em, you love ‘em. The amazing company, We Help Two! *applause* To quote them directly, “We Help Two was founded on the belief that fundraising can be done in a way that benefits two causes. By hosting a funky sock fundraiser through We Help Two, organizations not only raise funds for their cause but also impact their local community through our sock donation program to local homeless shelters.” Texas Thespians are so happy to be able to support We Help Two!
We would like to also like to introduce you to the amazing people at Sock Out Poverty! This company, founded by the amazing Princess Jackson, is dedicated to providing socks for the less fortunate. We will be focusing our efforts in support of the efforts of Sock Out Poverty and their work in the great city of Houston while in San Antonio.
We encourage you to find their booth at Festival and go grab yourselves some amazing socks both for you and for the people of Houston! The We Help Two booth will sadly only be available at Grapevine, but keep in mind that if you still feel passionate about socks, you can visit the We Help Two website. You can also donate socks or money to Sock Out Poverty.
Thank you again to Sock Out Poverty and We Help Two for collaborating with us at Festival! And thank you to all of you amazing Thespians. We can’t wait to see all of you later this month and Break a Leg to everyone who is competing or auditioning! Until next time~
