8-year-old collects socks for those in need with Rock your Socks

Young Aaron started a sock collecting organisation and has collected over 10 000 pairs of socks so far.

He was inspired by a young LeadSA hero named Dario who was collecting shoes.

And Aaron said how can you have shoes with no socks. And that's how Rock Your Socks was born.
