Fox and Friends Story

WOW! Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Fox & Friends did a super job with the Erin Bertel and The Joy of Sox® story (Friday July 10 8:20 am).

The emotional video clip shows the story of Erin and what happened when she discovered that the homeless need a vital item that they hardly ever get – new socks.

It’s runs 3:20 and Fox included a short commercial up front, but take a look at it if you can and please let us know your thoughts.
