Thank you for visiting Team Smiley's personal 'COTS Walk' fundraising page.
A young man – referred to as "Smiley" on the streets - who has experienced homelessness (at a young age and in multiple states) is the inspiration for our team name. You don't always realize how important something as seemingly insignificant as a pair of clean, dry socks is until you have only the pair on your feet...if you're blessed enough to have any at all. According to Smiley, "Getting a new pair of socks is like striking gold when you are homeless!" This amazing young man has inspired us, both to get involved with the community of people experiencing homelessness on a personal level and to support organizations such as COTS. We would love for you to get involved too! :)
