12 Days of Giving: John’s Crazy Socks Supports the American Nurses Foundation

On the final day of our 12 Days of Giving, John’s Crazy Socks is supporting the American Nurses Foundation. For every order received on Monday, December 12, 2022, we will donate $1 to the American Nurses Foundation and their COVID-19 Relief Fund. 

“The American Nurses Foundation became a charity partner during the COVID-19 pandemic and we are so glad that we can support the work they do,” said John Cronin, co-founder of John’s Crazy Socks. “The nurses do such a great job it is very important that we thank them and support them.”

Health Care Superhero Socks and the American Nurses Foundation 

During the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, John’s Crazy sock wanted to do something to say thank you to the frontline workers. Mark X. Cronin, John’s father and co-founder, said, “Everyone was so afraid and there was so much uncertainty, yet we witnessed nurses and other frontline workers put themselves at risk every day to take care of us.”

That’s when John had the idea to make socks to say thank you. It was from John’s suggestion that we created our Healthcare Superhero Sock and This Superhero Wears Scrubs Socks. The Healthcare Superhero Sock and our new Healthcare Hero Compression Socks raise money for the American Nurses Foundation’s Coronavirus Response Fund.

12 Days of Giving at John’s Crazy Socks 

For each day during the first 12 days of December 2022, John’s Crazy Socks highlights one of our charity partners and donates $1 from every order received that day to that charity partner. For Monday, December 12, that charity partner is the Good Samaritan University Hospital. 

John Cronin said, “We have a mission to spread happiness and our customers know that when they buy from us, they are spreading happiness.” 

And the keys to happiness? John said, “It is doing for others and gratitude. And our 12 Days of Giving shows our gratitude for the wordk of our charity partners.” 

Mark X. Cronin, John’s co-founder and father, said, “Our customers know when they buy from us, they will receive great socks with personalized service, but they also know they help us hire people with differing abilities, they help us give back and, most of all, they help us spread happiness.” 

The 12 Days of Giving is part of the Giving Back program at John’s Crazy Socks which has raised over $550,000 for our charity partners.
