In recent weeks, Geek Native has given away copies of Good Strong Hands. That’s an RPG inspired by stories like The Neverending Story.
As it turns out, “good strong toes” can be even more generous.
Stand4 Socks got in touch a few days and asked whether Geek Native might take a look at Christmas designs. I did peak but asked, “Er, is there a geeky angle here?”.
There is. As you can see! These Tetris block socks are lovely! They also seem appropriately fitting, and I feel there must be a better pun there I can make to link sliding Tetris blocks into place when it comes to feet into socks.
Every time you buy a sock from Stand4 Socks, a homeless person gets a free pair of thick and antibacterial socks. These socks do good.
As you’d expect from a social good company that knows about Tetris, these are ethically sourced materials and manufacturing processes. From peaking at their Christmas catalogue (not yet revealed), I know that you can get gifts for under £20. The site tells me about the next day delivery.
- The average person buys 16 pairs of socks a year
- We wear socks for an average of 15 hours a day
- Socks are one of the few items that we both start and end our day with
- We have donated over 150K pairs of socks to homeless so far!
Thanks to Stand4 Socks for those additional sock facts. I am way below average on my sock purchasing. Way below. Perhaps it’s time to throw out some threadbare oldies of mine and replenish.
