DealDash.com offers several auctions where we could win bulk orders of 10, 20, 60, 90 or even 120 pairs of socks. At first I wondered what anyone would do with that many pairs of socks. But then I got a wonderful idea. How about giving them away to people in need?
Do you know what article of clothing homeless people often need most? From what I heard, they are always in desperate need of clean, dry pairs of socks. After doing some research, I can understand why.
I learned when people have cold, wet feet for a long period of time they can develop a condition called trench foot, or immersion foot syndrome. It often happens when people have to wear wet socks and shoes or boots for days at a time. Prolonged exposure to damp, cold and sometimes unsanitary conditions can lead to the disease. I imagine soldiers in war zones might often experience situations like this as well.
Therefore, it sure would be a nice to win enough socks to donate to those in need simply as a goodwill gesture to make other lives better.
Let’s take a look at some of the many auctions DealDash now has available that includes several pairs of socks for women and girls, men and boys. Most of the auctions for men’s socks include 10 pairs and some of them appear to be selling at bargain prices, so let’s take a look.
