12 Days of Giving: John’s Crazy Socks Supports the Lexington School for the Deaf

On the eighth day of our 12 Days of Giving, John’s Crazy Socks is supporting the Lexington School for the Deaf, the largest school for deaf students in the state of New York.  For every order purchased on Thursday, December 8, 2022, we will donate $1 to the Lexington School for the Deaf

“The Lexington School for the deaf does important work, said John Cronin, co-founder for John’s Crazy socks. “And I loved meeting the students at the school.”

John and his father and co-founder, Mark X. Cronin, have visited the Lexington School for the Deaf and met with students. They gave a presentation to the high school students and sat in on a stage performance by younger students.

John said, “I was so impressed by the performance of the students.”

John’s Crazy Sock produces socks that use American Sign Language (ASL) sign to say, “I Love You.” The Company donates 10 percent from the sale of those socks to the Lexington School for the Deaf.

“I Love You” American Sign Language socks were designed by Sierra Sapack, winner of the Annual Sock Design Contest sponsored by John’s Crazy Socks.  

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 Thursday, December 8, that charity partner is the Lexington School for the Deaf

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 Dyas of Giving shows our gratitude for the work 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.

About the Lexington School for the Deaf

Lexington School for the Deaf, the largest school for the deaf in New York State, has been providing educational services to deaf students since its founding in 1864. Originally located on Lexington Avenue in Manhattan, the school relocated to East Elmhurst, Queens in the late 1960s. Because Lexington is a non-profit, New York State-supported 4201 school, we are able to offer a tuition-free education to our students.

About John’s Crazy Socks 

John’s Crazy Socks was inspired by John Lee Cronin, a young man with Down syndrome, and his love of colorful and fun socks—what he calls his “crazy socks.” He and his father, Mark X. Cronin, started the company as a social enterprise with a mission of Spreading Happiness™. With more than 4,000 socks, John’s Crazy Socks is now the world’s largest sock store. More than half their employees have a differing ability, and their Giving Back program has raised over $550,000 for charity partners like the Special Olympics, the National Down Syndrome Society, and the Autism Society of America. Most of all, they are Spreading Happiness™.
