CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) - You've watched her working for justice on the hit television show CSI: Miami. Now Emily Procter is part of campaign that's working to bring warmth and comfort to some of the smallest feet in America.
There are more than 18 million children in the US living below the poverty line, a number undoubtedly exacerbated by the challenging economy. As a mother herself, Emily Procter was horrified to learn that so many children go without, and she felt drawn to help and protect our nation's most vulnerable citizens.
Procter is spokesperson for the "Socks for America" campaign. Through the campaign, No nonsense, a leading manufacturer for legwear and sleepwear, will donate one million pairs of new, comfortable socks to children and their families in need nationwide.
The "Socks for America" campaign shows how a small gesture can make a huge difference to people in need. It provides the basics, such as socks, that so many of us take for granted. Socks are the least-donated, most-requested, item of clothing. They are essential for health and wellness. For many of the children who will receive socks through this program, it will be their first new item of clothing.
