I am ordering 11 pairs for family members, including one pair in the under-six size for my one-year-old grandson who won't be able to wear them for several years, at least. I think you'd sell lots of infant- and toddler-sized socks if you offered them, too. Hope you do. I wish you great success. -Donna C.

Hi kids. Wonderful work and great product. Question: do you think the kid socks could fit a size 7 lady shoe??? Love to adult ones but they are longer. I want everyone to notice and ask WHERE I got the rocking socks!! Or maybe you have plans for an adult ankle/sport sock? I adore what you are doing. Thank you for your work. And GO BRUINS‼ –Shawn R.

You two boys are the coolest. I am a junior high and high school art teacher. I have been teaching my students about endangered species for 28 years. I love your project. It warms my heart that your teacher inspired you to become directly involved in doing something to help an endangered species on our planet. I am looking forward to my socks. Keep up the great work! Earth Day is Every Day. –Patricia W.

You guys are incredible. You have such passion and drive at such a young age. It wasn't until I was 25 that I found mine. Never give up. Never lose sight of what you think important and hold dear in life. And most importantly, never lose your sense of wonder -Thomas R.

I met you and your dad at the John Muir House Earth Day and Birthday (where you were receiving an award--WOW!) and was so honored and thrilled to receive a pair of your awesome Blue Footed Booby socks. As a member of Mt. Diablo Audubon Society, I will wear them proudly, and as the editor of our newsletter, will give you a shout-out and hope to spread the word about your wonderful cause! I only wish I had taken a photo of you at our table--rats! I think I was just overwhelmed by your generosity. I admire the fact that you two brothers (with support from your folks) are DOING something to help the birds. You saw a problem, created a solution and are stellar examples of being good stewards of the planet--bravo! We need more young people like you to save the planet, for sure. Starting with the birds warms my heart. Keep up the great work! -Maren S.

I love national geographic soooo much i was actually reading national geographic 100 ways to make the world better when i saw your page.I just knew i HAVE to help these poor birds.I told my mom if i can get these socks and she said yes because of my unusual love for science and helping people and animals !

I think it's great what you boys are doing and the socks look really cool! -Joy J.

I applaud your efforts for Galapagos wildlife research. Given your ages it’s amazing what you have accomplished. That said, I have two observations. First it would be better for sales I think if you could offer adult men’s and women’s. And if you could offer youth and a smaller child size. Second, I was disappointed to see that the socks are made in China. Ecuador makes t-shirts so couldn’t they make your socks? It would be nice if they came from there. Thanks for all your hard work. -Marilyn H. -

Keep up the terrific work!! -Jane C.

Hello! My students are putting together a drive inspired by your Blue Feet Foundation! It all began when I assigned them to make a presentation on issues in Ecology, including animal endangerment. Several students chose the Blue Footed Booby! Seeing all of the sadness surrounding animal endangerment, we've put together drives to benefit endangered species organizations, but specifically will hold a schoolwide "Blue Sock Day" and all money raised will be given to your suggested group, Galapagos Conservancy, to adopt as many Blue Footed Boobies as possible. I will let you know how it goes! –Amie M.

I visited the Galapagos in 1993, climbed to the rim of Alceso Volcano and camped there among the giant tortlises and friendly hawks. It changed my life. I loved the boobies too. What you are doing is amazing. Thank you! –Liza W.
