Raising anti-bullying awareness in support of Kidscape
As children across the UK return to school after the Easter Holidays, SOCKSHOP are thrilled to launch our April awareness campaign - Bully-Free Zone.
Whilst so many children were itching to be back in the classroom, some children across the country will have been anxious about their return for fear of becoming the victim of bullying.
In 2019, 20% of young people were victims of bullying, echoing the figures from 2018. Of these young people. 62% were bullied by classmates and 37% were bullied by someone at their school who they didn’t even know (BBC). Whilst cyberbullying still poses a threat, studying from home allowed children to have more control over their contact with peers, limiting their exposure to bullying.
So with this in mind, we’re putting our best foot forward this April to raise awareness of anti-bullying resources and the different types of bullying that can occur. At SOCKSHOP, we are so passionate about this issue that we donate 10% of the RRP for our Elmer Patchwork Bamboo Socks to Kidscape in partnership with ELMER. They’re available in all sizes, so anyone can support their mission.
These donations support the incredibly important anti-bullying work carried out by Kidscape who are based in London. Find out more about their work, the benefits of our Elmer bamboo socks, and anti-bullying resources below. So what are you waiting for?
Even more reasons to buy our bamboo products
We’re pretty proud of our bamboo socks so if you’re looking for more reasons to buy our Elmer Patchwork bamboo socks, on top of charity donations, then you’ve come to the right place!
Not only is our SOCKSHOP bamboo range of socks and underwear famous for its incredible softness, but it is 3-4 times more absorbent than cotton, with moisture wicking properties too. This means that it carries moisture away from your body, keeping you cool and dry for maximum comfort.
And that’s not all! Bamboo’s natural thermoregulation means it helps to keep your feet warm on chilly days. Bamboo has many natural qualities that lends itself perfectly to socks. Bamboo is 2-3 degrees cooler in warm weather and also very warm in cold weather, because its fibre micro structure is filled with various micro-gaps and micro-holes. So what are you waiting for?
Grab your bamboo socks now to support Kidscape’s anti-bullying work whilst securing some high quality socks for your feet. They deserve it.
