The simple steps to Socktober success:
Make sure your school has a page, and then register as a Socktober Star.
2. Write Your Why
Inspire others by sharing about why you're making a difference. Edit your page bio or post regular blog updates.
3. Pick 'em and Kick 'em!
Choose a Goal Pack, and kick each of the goals throughout Socktober to earn sponsorship from family and friends.
4. Share your page
Once registered, send your unique page link via email, Facebook or SMS and ask friends and family to sponsor the goals you are kicking for kids in need!
Our goal: food security and life-saving nutrition in Ethiopia
In 2022, students and their families across Australia will raise funds to support families in Ethiopia facing malnutrition and food insecurity.
Our projects on the ground will help sustain and enrich the lives of vulnerable children who are in need of our support.
Your support will keep them running.
Socktober Challenge: Your mission starts here
The Socktober Challenge is a comprehensive journey in mission where you create your own adventure and kick goals for kids in need off the field. Our six themed Mission Packs will help you understand the needs of children in developing communities and take action to support them.
Socktober Shootout: Kick your mission goals
Time to shoot for the stars! Celebrate Mission Week with a Socktober Event Day and use your sockballs to kick goals on the field.
