What is the SocksChallenge Campaign?
#SocksChallenge is organized by DEDOLES www.dedoles.com and held every year on 21 March and is associated with World Down Syndrome Day. On this day, two different socks are worn to celebrate human uniqueness. All those who want to show solidarity and support people with Down syndrome and their families are welcome to join the challenge. At the same time, this campaign helps spread awareness that human individuality makes this world more beautiful, colourful, interesting, and inspiring.
DEDOLES – best selling products are socks!
The company DEDOLES has been selling cheerful products for 8 years and operates in 20 European countries through their e-shops.
As their best-selling products are socks, which are also a symbol of World Down Syndrome Day, the company management decided to support people with Down Syndrome through the Socks Challenge.
DEDOLES have implemented Socks Challenge campaign for 3 years and just finished its 4th campaign. The campaign goal is to use their marketing potential to raise awareness about people with Trisomy 21 and at the same time to dedicate part of the March sale of socks to organizations which support people with Down syndrome.
Donations to DS Associations
2020 the company managed to inform more than 700,000 people about Down syndrome through the massive information campaign Sock Challenge and donated € 8000 to the Slovak organization Spoločnosť Downovho synrómu na Slovensku and another € 2,533 to Down Syndrome International (DSi).
In 2021 DEDOLES wanted to support people with Trisomie 21 again.
A large amount was divided between the Slovak Spoločnosť Downovho synrómu na Slovensku, as DEDOLES is a Slovak company; as well as to Down Syndrome International (DSi) and to the European Down Syndrome Association (EDSA), as both provide support to organizations in other countries through information, education, coordination, and other projects. Also the Czech DS association became a donation.
