SmartKnitKIDS® to Donate Portion of Proceeds in Support of Autism Awareness Month

Kansas City, KS, April 23, 2009 --( Knit-Rite, Inc., manufacturer of SmartKnitKIDS® Seamless Sensitivity Socks, in support of Autism Awareness Month, will be donating a portion of SmartKnitKIDS proceeds for the month of April.

SmartKnitKIDS, patented seamless sensitivity socks, have been widely accepted by children, parents, and professionals for children with Autism, sensory processing differences (SPD), and those who simply cannot stand annoying sock seams. “We wanted to support and give back to those families that have supported us in our mission to provide a product that helps them. They are the champions of this product – providing us feedback on how to improve the product; referring friends, family and colleagues; and sharing many heartwarming stories of how a simple pair of socks has improved their child’s life”, said Mark Smith, CEO.

SmartKnitKIDS seamless socks are knit like a caterpillar spins its cocoon, starting at the toe and circling toward the top to make a Truly seamless sock. The super soft socks are form-fitting, “hugging” the foot so they do not wrinkle or bunch. The socks also feature a unique no-heel design allowing children to put on their socks correctly with confidence. SmartKnitKIDS socks are available in white, pink, purple, blue and black in sizes up to a child’s 8 shoe size. Larger seamless sock sizes are available under the SmartKnit® brand. Both product lines have been approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) to use the prestigious APMA Seal of Acceptance.

SmartKnitKIDS socks can be purchased through select retailers and on-line partners. For more information visit
