A few weeks ago, my good friend Joshua Coombes, founder of #DoSomethingForNothing, went to Anchorage Alaska to meet up with Mikey Huff, a young photographer who started a project called The Wool Sock Project. You all know how much I love those initiatives and I wanted to know a little more and reached out to Mikey who happened to be a podcast listener!
Mikey Huff is a photographer and founder of ‘The Wool Sock Project’ based in Anchorage, Alaska. Mikey began distributing care packages to those living on the streets across Alaska, which included a pair of wool socks to help combat the freezing temperatures. Mikey exchanged these for a conversation, documenting these moments through portrait images. Mikey's career path is carved by his curiosity for humans, he believes the best way to improve the world around you is to use your strengths to lift up the community around you.
Serving the Anchorage homeless community, our intent is to help each individual we interact with in some small way, whether it be with our care packages (wool socks, gloves, food, hand warmers, etc…) or simply by shaking hands and sharing stories.
