We first learned about Freshies when they joined our system in March of this year. Within a few days the whole team knew all about their unbelievably sweet, thoughtful and simple mission of providing clean socks to local homeless population in Austin TX.
Started by a husband & wife team this March in Austin, Freshies has a goal of providing 200,000 pairs of fresh socks per year.
With the fundraising we have done through MemberPlanet (since March of this year), we have been able to distribute over 2,000 pairs of socks, allowed us to involve over 150 volunteers into our packaging and distribution effort, and impact the lives of at least 200 members of our homeless community here in Austin.
We loved the cute logo, the simple mission, and the genuine love that showed through everything they created on our site. When you check out the Freshies page you'll see that these are every day folks that happened to have the beautiful and simple idea to give back a bit of dignity to an often-overlooked group.

We are so proud to have helped!
We found Member Planet very early on and we are so happy we did. We are just a little startup in Austin, TX, but MemberPlanet helps us appear much larger and much for sophisticated than we actually are. MemberPlanet has helped us expand our fundraising effort much more quickly than we could have otherwise and we are so thankful.
