Socktober started when Zack Smerchek seen a Kid President video on YouTube about Socktober. Zack, who was only 6 at the time came home and told his Mom he wanted to collect socks too and she said he could! Since 2014, Zack and his brothers, Drake, Luke and now Brecken has helped Zack collect socks each October! Socks collected during Socktober are then donated to Gifts For Kids and Edgerton Outreach and then donated back to kids in need! Kids helping kids … does it really get any better than that?
