There's nothing better than combining fashion and goodwill. "Rock the Socks" founder and SoCal native, Edward Atienza is making a difference around the world with the newly launched sock and fashion line, which raises awareness and money for global programs and issues. Rock the Socks gives back to charities such as, Corazon De Vida, The Sunshine Kids Foundation and United States Veterans.
So how does it work? RTS donates 25% of its proceeds to an effective and meaningful non-profit organization that is leading the way in social change and movement. The distinctive patterns of the socks gain attention and invites consumers to build communal awareness.

“While studying abroad I had limited ability to communicate. This forced me to be more introspective and I would spend a good portion of my time walking one of the most beautiful and surreal places, contemplating my identity and purpose. I realized that my greatest gifts were my artistic creativity and my natural love for helping others. Out of those two realizations along with my lifelong enjoyment of having the best socks, came this idea. Rock the Socks is a fusion of my two purposes in life – to create and to give back,” said Atienza.
