John’s Crazy Socks will hold our first pop up on Saturday March 4, 2017 from 12 – 4 p.m. in Huntington Village. The Pop Up Shop will operate at Rust and Gold, a restaurant/sports bar located at 70 Gerard Street (across the street for the post office). The Pop Up Shop will serve as a fundraiser for Makenzie Cadmus and her family so 10 percent of all sales will go to Makenzie’s Family.
Why visit the John's Crazy Socks Pop Up?
John’s Crazy Socks was co-founded by John Cronin, a young man from Huntington with Down syndrome. John loves meeting our customers and the Pop Up Shop will give him the opportunity to meet many people and take photos with them. John says, “We will have a lot of great socks there and a lot of crazy socks”
About John’s Crazy Socks
John’s Crazy Socks.com has a simple mission: spread happiness through socks. We sell fun, beautiful, color socks that let people express their passions and personality. We offer socks you can love from the best designers in the country. And we deliver those socks with fast, personal service. Every package includes a hand-written thank you note from John and some candy sweets.
We also believe that giving back is important so we donate 5 percent of our earnings to the Special Olympics. Why the Special Olympics? John is an active athlete in the Special Olympics program and we have seen how much that organization does for so many.
Rocking the Socks for Makenzie Cadmus
Makenzie Cadmus is a girl from Hauppauge who was born with epidermolysis bullosa. Newsdayhas described the condition as one “that causes her skin to develop painful blisters with the slightest friction. To protect her delicate skin, she must wear bandages from her hands to her shoulders and from the waist down, as well as socks on her arms and legs to stop her from removing the bandages.”
Her family has started a campaign to Rock the Socks for Makenzie (#RTS1000) and have started a Go Fund Me campaign to raise money for her care. As part of the campaign, they have asked people to take and post videos or pictures wearing socks on their hands. John recorded a video for Makenzie. John’s Crazy Socks has donated to her campaign and will donate 10 percent of all sales from this Pop Up to her fund.
