 John said, “We have a mission to spread happiness and we do it with our socks.” 

“Entering the wholesale market and helping retail stores carry our products will allow us to reach more people and spread more happiness,” said John’s co-founder and father, Mark X. 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 $550,000 to our charity partners. Most of all, buying our socks lets customers spread happiness. Wearing our socks makes people feel good.”
