John’s Crazy Socks Hand Delivers Wholesale Order to Sleepy Coffee Too

Kim Kaczmarek stepped down as a special education teacher, but not to sail off into retirement. Instead, she is opening a coffee shop, Sleepy Coffee Too, that will employ people with differing abilities. Ahead of the official opening of the coffee shop, Kim has opened a small gift shop and she requested a last-minute order to carry socks from John’s Crazy Socks. John Cronin together with his co-founder and father, Mark X. Cronin, made a special delivery to Kim and her team so they would have socks in time for the opening of their gift shop.

“We love what Kim is doing,” said John Cronin, “and we want to do everything we can to help her.” 

“John has a mission to spread happiness,” said Kim Kaczmarek, “and he made a lot of people happy when he showed up at our door to deliver his socks.” 

John’s Crazy Socks’ own line of socks called J’s, that include our famous Awareness Socks, are now available for retail stores to carry. We are excited that Sleepy Coffee Too is making our socks available to their customers.

Cronin. “Our customers love our socks and they know that when they buy our socks, they enable us to employ people with differing abilities – more than half our colleagues have a differing ability. Our customers feel good about supporting our Giving Back Program – we start by donating five percent of our earnings to the Special Olympics and have donated over $600,000 to our charity partners. Most of all, buying our socks lets customers spread happiness. Wearing our socks make people feel good.”
