We are big fans of anything that celebrates the inclusion of persons with differing abilities in all aspects of our daily lives. Without ASL, persons who have speech or language difficulties would find it difficult to communicate with others.
The first-ever Winner of our Sock Design Contest: Sierra Sapack! She is currently a junior at Liberty University majoring in Special Education and minoring in American Sign Language. Her design was a blue sock with hearts and a hand displaying the American Sign Language gesture for "I Love You." Sapack was inspired to design her sock, entitled "I Love You in American Sign Language," by her ASL professor, who is deaf.
These socks celebrate people who are deaf and use American sign language. And they will raise money for our new charity partner, the Lexington School for the Deaf. Ten percent of the sale of these American Sign Language I Love You Crew Socks will go to Lexington School for the Deaf.
We love these Whale Women's Crew Socks with their navy blue whales floating on a Bermuda blue sea. They’re beautiful and fun.
We also love these Whale Women's Crew Socks because 10 percent from every pair sold goes to the Whaling Museum and Education Center in Cold Spring Harbor. The Whaling Museum brings to life Long Island’s maritime past and helps us connect with the sea that surrounds us. They have artifacts, artwork and historical documents from when Cold Spring Harbor and much of Long Island was at the heart of the worldwide whaling industry. Better yet, they create exhibits and offer shows and programs that bring that world to life. Their focus is not just on the past, but how the past informs our lives today and will help shape our future. It is a small museum with a personal touch and creative staff.
Our co-founder and inspiration, John Cronin, loves to visit the museum. During visits there, he’s made toy boats and simulated scrimshaw. He’s danced to a rockabilly band during one of the Museum’s Whales, Tales and Ales Nights when they open the museum to visitors, have performers re-enacting scenes from the past and welcome local craftspeople to share their wares. What a great time the whole family had! So be sure to get your Whale Women's Crew Socks before they swim on out of our warehouse for good!

John Cronin, our co-founder, says, “I wanted to make these socks for my grandmother, Mamo. She has Alzheimer’s and I love her.”
Co-founder Mark X. Cronin explains, “This is very personal for us. John and I have seen the impact that Alzheimer’s has had on our family. It affects not only the patient, but the entire family. And John has Down syndrome and we are all too aware of the connection between Down syndrome and Alzheimer’s. Most of the 200,000 people with Down syndrome in the United States and many of the 5 million worldwide will develop Alzheimer’s, many as early as their 40s.”
We will be donating 10% from the sale of each pair of socks to LuMind RDS Foundation, https://www.lumindrds.org/, an organization dedicated to enabling independence and enriching community engagement for all individuals with Down Syndrome.
