White Sock Campaign
The White Sock Campaign was created by the Save A Leg, Save A Life (SALSAL) Foundation in 2013 to help raise awareness of PAD, diabetes, and the prevention of amputation. The SALSAL has developed a pin with a sock on just one end of the ribbon.
This is to promote solidarity with our amputees. It also signifies the many wound care patients that often can wear only one shoe, while the foot may be wrapped with a dressing. Many times, a sock is the only outer garment that will fit over the bulky dressings.
How to Get Involved
How to Participate:
1) Wear one white sock on one leg.
2) Take a photo or video of yourself or with other clinicians wearing one sock.
3) Use the hashtage #WhiteSockCampaign to spread the word by sharing your photo or video on your social media channels.
4) Tag other people in your post and challenge them to get involved in the campaign by posting their own white sock photo and sharing the message of PAD.
