Purple Sock Day
Purple Sock Day is a social enterprise, which was launched in 2021 to create an act of national mass participation, whilst also creating social impact. Using the International Day of Disabled People (IDPD) as a platform, which takes place annually on 3rd December, the Purple Sock Day campaign encourages the public, businesses and other organisations to buy a pair of official Purple Socks and wear them on IDPD. This simple act of mass participation not only helps to raise positive awareness of disability inclusion, but 50% of the proceeds are set aside in a Purple Sock Fund to help support D/deaf, disabled, and neurodiverse entrepreneurs. Our socks are soft, sumptuous and of very high quality. Made from bamboo, which is fabricated by our sock partners BAM, a pioneering activewear brand that champions sustainability.
Purple Sock Day combines sustainable style with social impact, which has helped and supported many talented disabled people on their entrepreneurship journeys
