Who Knew Socks Could Help So Much?

What if I told you there's socks out there that increase circulation, reduces jet lag, swelling, muscle soreness, and helps decrease the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT)? Would you believe me? Well guess what! Its true, and I'm about to show you all about it!

SoxxyAir is a stylish compression sock that gives back! The creator, Sarah Stabile, joined up with 5 different charities and whenever you buy a pair of socks, $8 of that purchase goes to the charity. This is a wonderful way not only to promote your own health, but to look stylish and give back while doing so. 


Check out the different socks and charities. Descriptions of the charities taken from SoxxyAir, check it out here:



Bob Woodruff Foundation sox:

Bob Woodruff Foundation's (BWF) mission is to ensure injured veterans and their families are thriving long after they return home. Yet even after they return to the love and support of their families and communities, many will struggle. Physical and hidden injuries can sometimes lead to unemployment, depression, substance abuse, even suicide.

BWF finds and funds innovative programs in communities where veterans, their families and caregivers live and work. www.bobwoodrufffoundation.org


Jesse Lewis Choose Love sox:

Jesse Lewis was one of the first graders killed at Sandy Hook elementary school. He was a modern day hero at the age of 6.  Jesse’s Mom, Scarlett Lewis, recently published a heart-warming story about the loss of her son and the birth of the Jesse Lewis Choose Love foundation. “Nurturing, Healing, Love” are the words Jesse left behind on the family’s kitchen chalk-board. In the wake of such terror, it would be easy to become bitter and sarcastic, but Scarlett has chosen love and is developing programs to teach children about the power each of us has to change our thoughts and choose a life without fear and hate. http://www.jesselewischooselove.org/


Kristen Ann Carr Fund Sox:

The Kristen Ann Carr Foundation (KACF) provides grants for cancer research and seeks to improve all aspects of cancer patient life with an emphasis on adolescents and young adults.

The Kristen Ann Carr Foundation honors the life of Kristen Ann Carr (1971 – 1993), a remarkable young woman who sought life and love. Established at Kristen’s request, the Fund continues in her spirit and convictions in its efforts. In memory of Kristen and with love for Barbara, Dave, Sasha + Wes, I created the KACF sock. Proceeds will be donated to the Kristen Ann Carr Foundation. www.sarcoma.com


Orion Sox: 

The Orion sock benefits the Michael Stabile Memorial Scholarship Fund at Trinity Pawling School. The fund provides financial assistance to students in the School’s Language Program. This specialized program works to alleviate dyslexia and learning disabilities; providing students with the opportunity to realize a full range of academic potential.



WhyHunger Sox:

WhyHunger was founded in 1975 by the late musician Harry Chapin and Bill Ayres (Executive Director). It is a grassroots support organization that works with more than 8,000 community-based groups around the country and across the world to fight hunger and poverty. From humble beginnings, WhyHunger remains committed to the belief that everyone deserves access to nutritious, affordable food and that together we can truly make a difference. Proceeds from sales of the WhyHunger sox will be donated to the foundation.  www.whyhunger.org

  1. Love this post!! I keep a pair of circulation socks in my airplane kit, haha… I always feel like an old lady putting them on at take off because the ones on the market are so geriatric looking. Definitely going to get some of these, especially if it will keep my ankles from swelling so much!
