For the Love of Socks!

For the love of…Socks, yes – goofy, joyfilled, wee moments of happiness;

SOCKS

Joy_Socks_circleI love the ancient proverb that says,
“How wonderful are the feet of those that bring good news”

I want to spread some good news, with some socks on your beautiful feet!

Our world is in dire need of some joy…would you be part of helping spread some?

In a nutshell, ‘friend’ me on instagram or facebook, Leona deVinne ☺, take a photo of your feet in goofy, fun socks (heck, paint your feet, go bare, I don’t care) and post it on social media and tag it #joysocks

Each month a fave pair of feet will be chosen and $50 will be donated to a charity of your choice – how yummy is that!

Why socks you ask? Why not!

I remember years back I was going through some tough times, exhausted, going through a divorce, working hard and not feeling much happiness at all. One day when I came home I noticed that I was wearing 2 different socks and it made me laugh!

A wee bit of levity amidst my life that felt like a slog fest – yes please!

Science has been confirming that the happiest people are the ones that find joy in the smallest moments.

2 years ago I started mailing out goofy socks to random people and it was so fun, so I started giving them to people I knew were struggling and they said it brightened their days when they wore them. Heck even if people weren’t struggling I handed them out…they started sending me photos of their feet with the “joy socks” on them and that gave me such joy!

It’s pretty much a never ending circle of goodness for me since then ☺

So thus the sock idea started to bloom and blossom.

I started to call them joy socks and so did they ☺

I need people to help me with this joy spreading, happiness movement – I need YOU!

My desire is to start a Joy sock movement

January Winner #JoySocksWear some fun socks and take a photo of your feet doing something or being somewhere; on a fire truck, park bench, hanging from a tree (safely, please), out of the top of skates, you get the idea. Post it on social media with #joysocks (first become my ‘friend’ on FB or instagram, otherwise I can’t share in the joy – please)

Each month someone will be chosen to win the #joysock photo contest-craziest/funnest/goofiest/joyfullest shot!!
