TL;DR: We’re doing crowd-funded socks for charity, using Knitout. With all profit going to charity: water.
CocoaPods was started in 2011. We are a community run project, with no large-scale corporate backing. We're often asked if we'd do something like t-shirts or hoodies.
We don't want to use CocoaPods' popularity to make money. So, we are putting all profits into a charity. Want to know more? Go see cocoapods.org/socks.
