This is the ultimate form of silent protest. This crowdfunding project on Pozible is trying to raise $5,000 dollars for the production of the socks and make them widely available in Chicago, as well as online.
Here’s the full press release:
F*ck My Job Socks are an actual pair of sock that says “F*CK MY JOB” on the toe. They can be worn with dress shoes, or as regular socks, as a sneaky way to express your feelings about your job.
This campaign is raising money to for the production of the socks. There are various different rewards, including a shout out on the FMJS website, and customized socks with the name of whatever company you work for on the toe.
“F*ck My Job Socks are the ultimate gag-gift” – Chris Stavistsky Project Creator.
Project creator Chris Stavisky was working at a job he hated, when he decided to get a custom pair of socks made, that expressed how he really felt about his job on the toe of his sock, and garnered immense satisfaction from knowing it was there. When he told his friends about the socks, they loved them and decided they had to have a pair for themselves, which inspired this campaign.
These socks are for men and women and come in two different sizes. The design is gray with a red toe.
Chris seeks to raise $5,000 for production costs to start producing the socks that its local creator would like to make widely available across the city.
“I have a strange feeling that there may be one or two people out there unhappy with their workplaces who would enjoy walking around with the F*ck My Job Socks,” said Mr Stavistsky.
This campaign is being launched on the global crowdfunding platform Pozible through The Chicago Edit, a page designed to celebrate and bring together some fantastic local innovations at www.pozible.com/chicago.
It opens for pledges on June 26th, 2014.
