John’s Crazy Socks is an online business, so this event is a special opportunity for us to meet with customers and celebrate together. “I am so excited for this party,” says our co-founder, John Cronin. John is a 22-year-old man with Down syndrome, and it was his idea to start the business, along with his father.
The Huntington duo opened the store on December 9, 2016 with a mission to spread happiness. Since then, they have shipped over 158,000 orders to every state in the U.S. and 80 other countries. “I love crazy socks, they are colorful and fun,” says John. “They let me be me. My catch phrase is socks, socks, and more socks. The more people that have my socks, the more happiness we can spread.”
Mark Cronin explains, “We have built a social enterprise: we have both a social and a business mission and they are indivisible.” The elder Cronin explains that they have built the business on four pillars.
- Inspiration and Hope: We want to show the world what is possible when you give someone a chance. We hire people with differing abilities and want to show the world what they can do. So far, we have crated 35 permanent jobs and 18 are held by people with differing abilities.
- Giving Back: We donate 5 percent of our earnings to the Special Olympics and have Charity and Awareness Socks that raise money for our charity partners like the National Down Syndrome Society, the Autism Society of America and the Williams Syndrome Association. So far, we have raised over $190,000 for or charity partners.
- Socks You Can Love: We have over 2,300 different socks making John’s Crazy Socks the largest sock store in the world in terms of choice. We have a Sock of the Month Club, gift boxes and bags and we offer custom socks. Our customers love it: we have over 14,000 online reviews and 96 percent are five-star reviews.
We hope you can celebrate with us at our Open House Anniversary Party on Dec 8th. Buy some socks, dance with John and Santa, and spread some happiness!
