Princess Jackson Founder of Sock Out Poverty, Inc. recently appeared on the Steve Harvey airing on local station KRIV Fox 26.
The now 13-year old will be featured along with three other young people who are doing great things in their community in a segment called Real Good which spotlights kids who go above and beyond to give back to others.
During the segment, the kids received a great surprise when talk show host/comedian Steve Harvey gave each one of his young guest a check for $5,000 towards their nonprofit organizations.
“It was exciting to meet Mr. Harvey and to receive a check for $5,000 for my organization,” said Jackson! “This will definitely help Sock Out Poverty reach our goal of providing socks to the homeless community on a global level!”
Jackson founded Sock Out Poverty, Inc. in December 2014 to provide socks to the homeless community after seeing many of them having a need for the small item. Since its inception, Sock Out Poverty has donated close to 11,000 pairs of socks in the Houston, Beaumont, Dallas and San Antonio communities.
