About Sharing Small:
At the core, Sharing Small is about more than just socks; it’s an ideal and a movement. We see an opportunity to create something inclusive for children who might otherwise feel excluded because their families cannot afford the latest trends, while at the same time completing the circle and inspiring more privileged kids to be excited about charity and giving.
We chose to create a sock subscription as our first product for a few reasons. First, socks are one of the most requested items at homeless and women’s’ shelters, largely because they are one of the few clothing items that cannot be donated used.
Normally, I am boring when it comes to socks – I like plain white and that is about it. However, when I saw the Sharing Small website, I was intrigued and thought the socks looked neat.
Each month your child (or even you!) will get new socks that sparks their imagination, warms their feet, and opens their heart.
You will receive two new pairs of socks featuring the Sharing Small Explorers on an adventure (new designs every month!) and a matching postcard from the Explorers talking about their most recent adventure.
When you buy from Sharing Small, the company will donate a pair to a child in need!
The socks come in three different sizes:
Small: Ages 2-4
Medium: Ages 5-8
Large: Ages 9-12
When I agreed to the review, I selected the large size for the socks. A card came with the Sharing Small socks that I received. It says, “This month we went on a parachuting adventure! It was scary at first, but worth it in the end. We floated down from the clouds and everyone on the ground looked as tiny as ants. Can you think of things you have tried that were scary at first, but that you ended up liking? Part of being a Sharing Small Explorer is learning to try new things. We sent you socks with parachutes on them this month to remind you to be adventurous.”
I would not necessarily call my feet small, I wear 7 ½ to 8 in women’s, in sneakers. The Large size for kids ages 9-12 fit me perfectly. The quality of the Sharing Small socks is decent; they are quite thin, I can see them getting fuzzballed up quickly (for me at least). Somehow, I wear my socks out so quickly. Not too sure how it happens.
When you order your Sharing Small Socks Subscription, it is quite easy. You enter how many people you are buying for, then enter the child’s (or your own) information, select a size for your socks, enter your shipping info, and then pay for them. You can select whether you want to prepay for 6 months or pay as you go.
I love the Sharing Small company! The socks are unique and unlike anything, I have seen before. I like the fact that the company takes experiences from their Sharing Small Explorers and turns them into a design for socks. But, probably my favorite thing (and you are going to love this too!) is that they donate to those in need! So, even if you were on the fence about the Sharing Small Socks Subscription, that should immediately, change your mind.
