Mitscoots has just wrapped up a Kickstarter that will allow it to expand its product lineup from socks to all-new hats, scarves, and gloves. For years, the Austin, Texas-based company has been doing excellent work for those in the area without homes, employing those who are transitioning out of homelessness and giving away a pair of socks for every pair purchased. The company plans to continue its buy-an-item-give-an-item trend with the new products, expanding its reach from Texas to several other states by connecting with charities across the country who will help distribute products to those in need.
The fundraiser, which was spotlighted as a Kickstarter staff pick, asked for $22,000 to help with initial costs for the product expansion, and successfully ended yesterday with 316 backers pledging $25,799. The new hats, gloves, and scarves will begin production soon, made in the USA, just like their socks. We’re looking forward to getting our hands on the new products, and we’ll let you know as soon as they’re available.
