NY1 (News)NY1 New Yorker of the WeekReality Dose:
According to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, the number of homeless people in New York City has increased by 69%, to a record 64,000. Nationwide the number is, 610, 042.
I want to expand beyond NYC by the end of 2014 and add at least five more cities. These numbers are my motivation.
With your help I can achieve this goal.

Updates Archive:Update 2/5/14:
The Doctor that does street outreach that I am partnering with called. Her team just passed out 100 pairs of socks this morning. They need more! I am expecting a shipment of 300 to arrive soon but the weather is slowing down delivery. Her team is networking and gathering socks as well.
With your help we can do so much more. Please donate/share/tweet this page link. She summed up the need the very first day that I met her in one sentence: "Socks flow out of our hands like water we never have enough; we need more".Update 1/29/14:
Patagonia tweeted my link with this message: "Inspired. Hit us up to see how we can help". I have submitted the paperwork they requested and I am waiting to hear back.
Patagonia would be a dream partner for me as I respect their product and their stellar business practices.Update 2/7:
Patagonia has denied my request for them to donate socks. I won't give up though as they had my hopes up with that Tweet. Perhaps after they see more people support this project they will have second thoughts.
