Socks to warm-a-soul this Christmas
A not-for-profit society in Canada is asking for donations of foot wear filled with Christmas goodies to go to disadvantaged children and families, according to reports.

The Warm-a-Soul scheme in Greater Victoria provides thick socks filled with everyday items which are donated to needy families around Christmas time, says

With a heavy emphasis on brightening the Christmases of children, many generous people could choose to fill Christmas socks with toys, books and sweets.

Kelcy Snyckers, society spokesperson, told "The kids and families downtown, especially those on the street and in the shelter, don’t get any Christmas gifts at all. This is the only gift they get.

"I think if everyone would just add a little bit back in some small way it would make a huge difference to children, men and women."

In the build up to Christmas, many charities are running schemes for the needy such as Samaritan's Purse, which is encouraging people to send in shoeboxes full of necessary items to be sent to deprived individuals living in the developing world.
