2015 - Sock Granny goes Global with the goal of breaking all records.

Amanda spent many volunteer hours in preparing for our big launch party on Oct. 20, 2014. She designed posters and arranged for two Starbuck Stores to be a drop-off location for donated socks for the Sock Granny 1000 Campaign. Starbucks 1855 Burrard St - leave socks with Amanda
Amanda worked tirelessly during the entire Sock Party in looking after all 400 pairs of socks.

Amanda's warm smile and gracious words for everyone who donated socks made her a popular true friend of the 1000 pairs of Sock Campaign.

Thank you, Amanda and Molly

Watch our Sock-o-Meter climb to 1000 pairs of socks by the end of January, 2015


  1. I love the Sock Granny! This is such a splendid project, one that will warm the feet, as well as the heart, of those in need of warmth.

    1. Thank you, Ruth! One pair of socks make a big difference and that someone cares. Molly says that when she gives a homeless person a new pair of socks for their painful feet the persons face lights up with a big smile. Her stories inspire me to keep collecting socks.

    2. Keep on doing what you're doing, Grama Barb, it is sure to make a difference.
