Sock It To 'Em Campaign - eTown eChievement Award

The Sock It To Em Sock Campaign was launched in 2011 by Sue Lee, CEO of EQ Media and creator of “I Believe in Me!” When the entrepreneur recognized how many Americans face the harsh winter cold and dampness with inadequate protection for their feet, she asked her friend Phillis Shimamoto to join her in 2012 to form their non-profit and began soliciting fellow small business owners, churches, schools, city governments and the local media to pitch in.
