On June 1, 2020, in response to the horrific events that took place on May 23rd, we launched a not-for-profit initiative, taking PRE-ORDERS of our Original Black and White CRYING HEART Sock. The plan was to sell as many socks as we could muster for 5 days, with all proceeds after production costs and shipping donated to Community Bail Relief Funds and BLM aligned organizations throughout Canada and the US of A. To our amazement... by June 5th, lovely people from all over the world had stepped up and purchased in excess of 1,500 pairs of socks, helping us donate over $15,000 CAD to BLM aligned organizations.
Our CRYING HEART (penned by our good friend, and frequent collaborator Matthew Houston) is present on the outside & inside of each sock shaft.
Our original production run included a unique serial number in honor of the day the world sat up and took notice to the plight of Black Americans living in a racially unjust militarized police state - "05-25-20-BLM". For this limited re-release, we've updated the serial number to "04-20-21-BLM" in celebration of the day the justice system... got one right.
