It's possible to see a lot of joy and a lot of suffering in this part of the world. What else needs to be said that we don't already feel so deeply.

I have many friends who serve or have served in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). I know being a soldier is a heavy burden and one that requires a support system to carry out. There are some young people (18-21) in the IDF who do not have a typical support system back home. Perhaps they have made Aliyah (emigrated) to Israel on their own, or perhaps they have a family that in itself is struggling. Socks Forward seeks to do a very small favor for these soldiers, by providing them with extra socks. With dry, warm feet, these young men and women will be better able to serve their country.

Items I am looking for specifically:

New socks for IDF soldiers. New black cotton or cotton/blend tube socks.

If you have new socks you would like delivered to Israeli IDF soldiers please send the socks or 5 USD (which will be used to purchase socks) to:

There may seem to be political ramifications to what I am doing. There are none and none are intended.
