BrandBacker: Soxxy Air - Support A Cause Support Your Legs!
I have always supported doing good in the world and helping out the community. This particular campaign was definitely up my alley, because it combined two of my passions: Helping out others and fashion. SoxxyAir, by Sarah Stabile (an aviation specialist), aims to increase circulation, reduce jet lag, swelling in your ankles, muscle soreness, and decrease the risk of deep vein thrombosis. Socks by SoxxyAir are made of breathable, comfortable micro nylon fabric and is great for those traveling, working, or exercising. SoxxyAir's goal is to increase circulation and keep feet feeling comfortable.
Sarah Stabile has partnered with five charities so that purchases from SoxxyAir give back. The charity sox will be pre-sold on indiegogo.com (the link can be found at the bottom of this post) and shipped by Spring 2014.
