priceless gift from a misfit sock, give it to someone in need
of a smile and became a MISFIT SOCK ANGEL
Through the Misfit Sock Angels program lonely and marginalized
misifit socks become priceless gifts of JOY for those in need
-furry friends included- and YOU become an "angel" for helping
make that happen.
Misfit socks can be reimagined into so many wonderful gifts

projects. But your goodness doesn't stop there.
How do I get started?

with the misfit sock pile on your laundry room floor. You
know the pile - those socks that have lost their match during
the laundry cycle- we all have one. That's where we found
the misfit sock magic, and still do.
- Gather your misfit socks to stuff
- Use your detective work, and find out who would
like your STUFFED MISFIT SOCKS.
Some suggestions are:
Children or adults in need of a Holiday smile
[Children: stuff socks with crayons, markers, small toys,
and candies] [Adults: pens, playing cards, candies and mini
Animal Toys for local animal shelters.
You can also create sock dolls for local hospitals
and family shelters
The ideas are endless...

or purchase items to place in the misfit socks. Suggestions
for children are: jingle bell necklaces, pens, candies,
and small toys.

Million Misfit Sock March
the program got started
Our young daughters were holding "vigil" over a pile of misfit
socks that had lost their perfect match during the laundry
cylce. They believed in their hearts that these socks were
sad, lost, lonely -left dripping in tears-after being cast
aside and labeled "misfits." They wanted so desperately for
those socks to feel loved again, needed again. I didn't give
it much thought until the girls begged me to help them help
these socks. What's a poor mother to do? So...I made a promise
that we would find a way to make those socks feel loved again.
But at the time, I had no idea how.
The Christmas season rolled around and our misfit sock pile
had grown to what the girls called a "mountian." One afternoon
I told them to carry up all of the misfits and dump them on
the dining room table. I announced that we needed to dress
those socks in their Sunday best and stuff them with Christmas
goodies because the misifit socks were the perfect gift of
simple JOY to celebrate the season.
The girls loved decorating the socks and stuffing them with
jingle bells, candy, notes, reindeer carrots, little pinecones
and more. Then we tied the misfit socks with BIG red ribbons
and a misfit sock poem.
Early on Christmas Eve morning, we decorated our wheelbarrow
to resemble a sleigh, put on some spiffy elf hats and quietly
tied the misfit socks to every neighbor's doorknob in our
neighboorhood. The misfit socks were loved again and a family
tradition was born for years to come. ~ The Kiefer Family
