Bombas Socks: Supporting Homeless Youth

If you love Bombas socks as much as I do (especially the new space dye PRIDE socks), here's a gift: 25% off any order.

LGBTQIA+ youth are disproportionately over-represented among the homeless population - comprising up to 40% of total homeless youth across the US, compared to just 10% of the general youth population. To bring awareness to this fact and in partnership with the Ally Coalition, Bombas will donate 40% of all donation socks as a result of purchases made through the end of June directly to homeless LGBTQIA+ youth in need.

The Bombas name is derived from the Latin word for bumblebee, and the company’s strategy is to work together like a hive. Every person, every gesture can add up to make a big difference. I like buying from a company that gives back to people in need.

When Bombas learned that socks are the most requested clothing item in homeless shelters, they knew we had to do something. The company donates a pair of socks for every pair they sell. One purchased = one donated.

If you have never worn a pair of Bombas socks, know that they are engineered for comfort. The result of two years of research and development led to major material improvements to the design, performance and comfort of the everyday sock. They hand-link the seam that runs across the toes for comfort and added a honeycomb structure that hugs your foot where you need it most.

Bombas calls it “100% happiness guaranteed” and they stand behind it. If you order a pair and it falls short of your expectations, they’ll figure out how to help you.
