Special Delivery of Crazy Socks for President George H.W. Bush

News has spread fast that our 41st President, George H.W. Bush, is a huge fan of fun and crazy socks. Naturally, John and the team here at John’s Crazy Socks wanted to spread happiness to our former President, so we put together the craziest, most Presidential box of socks for 41 to add to his collection. We acted fast!


Adding a Personal Touch


In a letter included in the gift box to George H.W. Bush, our co-founder, Mark X. Cronin wrote, “We are John’s Crazy Socks, an online store founded by a father-son team. John (the son), is 21 years old and has Down syndrome. Like you, he has long loved wearing fun socks, or what he calls, his crazy socks.” He went on to explain the charities we are partnered with and why we want to give back and spread awareness for causes we care about.


“You spent much of your life demonstrating what is possible right up to parachuting out of planes on your birthday. Each day, we demonstrate what people can do through John’s participation in running our business and the colleagues with special needs who make contributions each day to our business. Of our 20 employees, four are on the Autism spectrum.


Throughout your career, you showed how the more we can do for others, the better off we are. That is how we run John’s Crazy Socks. We want to do more for our customers, employees and community. The more we can do for others, the more our business flourishes.”


We hope 41 loves the socks.


Socks for our 41st President


We chose seven socks that we thought best represented President Bush.

Our first pair, Stars and Stripes crew socks, seemed to be an obvious choice. We admire the service 41 has done for our country both as President and in the armed forces in World War II.
                                                                                
Texas, known as home to the nation’s best BBQ, is also home to President Bush and his family today. We included a pair of fun BBQ crew socks as a nod to the state’s great food and culture. Hopefully the president will pull them on before he fires up the grill!
                                                                   
 As a former President, 41 is called to attend a variety of black tie events. We included a pair of our Black Tie crew socks to stay suited up from head to toe!

Next on our list are a pair of socks we hope our former President wears with Pride and remembers his time serving our country. The Republican crew socks are the perfect political fashion go-to. 
The former President and First Lady had the honor to do the coin toss at the Super Bowl LI in February. John felt our Football socks were a great pair to commemorate the coin toss.

  As it is Autism Awareness month, we wanted to send our Autism Awareness Socks to 41 to include him in our efforts to spread awareness.  The Autism Awareness Socks were one of our first awareness socks as it is a cause close to our hearts. $2 from every purchase is donated to Autism Speaks and the Autism Society of America (Nassau/Suffolk County Chapter)
 Last but certainly not least, we included our brand-new Shark Socks. $2 from each pair purchased is donated to the Special Olympics. John and Liam, an employee at John’s Crazy Socks on the Autism Spectrum, are Special Olympic athletes. These socks proudly represent their team, the Commack Sharks, and we are honored to share them with 41.
