Stand with people with disabilities November 13

So that instead of “You don’t fit in”, wearing orange socks shows people with disabilities “We stand with you.”

Wearing Orange Socks on November 13 Makes an Impact on a Global Scale

Children born or diagnosed every four and a half minutes with a condition. You can raise your voice for disability.

More than 100,000 people see Orange Socks Stories Every Month

Let’s reach more so millions can see the beauty that children and adults with disabilities and other conditions bring to the world.

Come Help Us Share the Love and Get Free Orange Socks

Get a free pair of orange socks for every 10 orders you make or with any donation over $50.

By Wearing Orange Socks You Are Committing To:

  • Suspend judgment, invest your time, get to know someone with a disability.
  • Ask them what they need when you interact with them – don’t assume.
  • Lead with love – this way other people will feel comfortable reaching out with kindness as well.
  • Refer to someone with a disability as a person first, disability second (e.g. say a child with Down syndrome not a Down syndrome child).
  • Stand up for others with disabilities. They are not second-class citizens.
