Watching from the safety of our lil' boot shop half a world away... we obviously continue to be horrified by the senseless and unprovoked war we're witnessing in Ukraine. Their people need the world to continue to step up and support their existential fight to keep their homeland free, as well as their significant and immediate humanitarian needs so... we're gonna do what we can do... and sell some godamn socks.
Our initial PRESALE ran for two weeks - ending midnight the eve of Sunday March 20th. In total we sold 1,152 pairs of our "Glory to Ukraine" Crying Heart Socks to over 600 individual persons. We placed an order with our California production partner the following day (March 21st), and hope to have every last pair packed and shipped by the end of April 2022.
Monies were ($5,000 CAD as of April 21, 2022) and will continue to be donated to the CANADA-UKRAINE FOUNDATION'S UKRAINE HUMANITARIAN APPEAL. Full details and receipts to follow.
