Meet Jamie. She was inspired by Socktober to make her science project about helping the homeless!
Her project was all about determining which socks dried the fastest. She found that people who are homeless could avoid feet infections and more with socks that dry overnight or, even better, repel water. Her findings discovered that looser weave socks dried quicker, but sweat-wicking socks absorbed nearly a third less water and could dry completely in a shorter time.
We set out to try and put something on TV that felt and looked and smelled a little different. We wanted to make a TV show about joyfully making the world a brighter place. You can see the show on The Hub Network. We’re thankful for the opportunity, but we need people like you to help spread the word. Never did we imagine our little family project would ever spread this far. It’s only because of people like you who believe, like we do, that every voice matters. We’re working to make Kid President not just about one kid, but all kids. We want every kid and grown-up to realize they can make a difference. It’s why every episode begins with:
“This program is being broadcast at a special frequency. If you’re receiving this transmission: Congratulations, you are officially awesome.”
and every episode ends with a pep talk. We don’t want to make stuff that people just watch. We want you to take action and give the world a reason to dance.
It wasn’t easy to get our happy little show on the air, but thanks to people like you - we did. Let’s keep going. Tell your friends. Write about it. Spread the word.
We’re excited about making more fun stories both for TV and for the web. Happy you’re part of this with us!
