Sky Brown is a 9 year old skate boarder from Japan. She uses her incredible skating talent to draw attention, not directly to her, but indirectly to create awareness in areas of need. While traveling in Cambodia she met a few friends. After hanging out and teaching them how to skate and boosting their morale, it did not make sense to Sky why they lived in extreme poverty. Why were her basic survival and educational needs easily met and theirs were not? Why did the kids have to walk the streets begging for money so their family could eat? It was then, Sky knew she had to do something to help make a difference in the lives of her new friends in Cambodia.
Inspiration For The Design:
Sky thought about what was important to her and started sketching a sock. She reached out to Pride Socks with her ideas. Together, Sky and Rachel, founder of Pride Socks, put their minds together and collaborated. They flew out to Alabama and turned Sky's sketches into an actual sock.
She included a wave and skate ramp with the sun shinning because she feels free to be who she is while surfing and skating. She included brave, kind, strong, proud, fair, free and happy on the bottom of the sock because everyone has the right to be strong and happy, be treated fairly with kindness. All the while being proud of who you are.
The greatest part about this is with each pair of 'Sky's the Limit' socks purchased, $5 goes directly to ISF to help kids out of poverty and into the classroom, where they belong.
