About - 2 Pairs Each
large-size-socks1-225x300Hi. My name is Josh Berry and I was 9 years old when I started this project. I decided I wanted to help homeless people. I am collecting 50,000 pairs of socks so that every one of the 23, 000 homeless people in Victoria can have 2 pairs of socks each. I am now 12 years old and I have collected over 17,000 pairs of brand new socks for the homeless and given them out to them in the last 2 1/2 years.

I live at home on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia with my mum and dad and my 14 year old sister. Our family likes helping people. Four years ago my sister did a project where she co-ordinated collecting 33,000 children's books for schools, children's centres and a University in Cambodia.

I love playing with my Lego and enjoy playing with my friends, bike riding, triathlon training, swimming, camping, water sports and doing adventure type activities. I also love reading adventure type books and biographies about people who have done amazing stuff. I want to visit Shell Mera in Ecuador and travel up the Curaray River and also go to Russia and China.

When I grow up, I want to be in the army, an explorer, an adventurer, a medical doctor, be a snow and mountain rescuer and a pilot with MAF.
