Small Business Saturday falls on November 28 and it is a national call to pay attention and support small businesses. John’s Crazy Socks is a small business and we believe that Small Business Saturday is really about
community. Small Business Saturday is about giving back and supporting our neighbors.
The West Islip Breast Cancer Coalition has teamed up with John’s Crazy Socks for a fundraising campaign. In the campaign, supporters use a special charity code when making a purchase from John’s Crazy Socks. The supporters each receive a free gift and John’s Crazy Socks donates 10 percent of the sales to the West Islip Breast Cancer Coalition.
As part of that giving back, John delivered a check for $3,681 to the Special Olympics, bringing the total amount donated to the Special Olympics to over $90,000 in a Giving Back program that has raised over $360,000 for charity partners.
John’s Crazy Socks has introduced a line of fun and comfortable face masks. True to their mission, not only do these masks look good and spread happiness, but they give back too. John’s Crazy Socks donates 10 percent from the sales of these masks to Covid-19 Relief Funds supporting frontline healthcare workers.
Let’s start with reality: we have not closed for Juneteenth in the past. So why now? Because we are learning, and we need to change. Because Juneteenth is a day of action and we need to take action. Because this is personal, it is not about what we all must do, it is about what John and I must do as leaders of our organization.
Giving Back is an essential part of our mission at John’s Crazy Socks. During times of stress, Giving Back becomes all the more important. Through the end of April, we had raised $63,062 for our charity partners in 2020.
John is my son, my buddy, my partner and my inspiration. He is the co-founder and Chief Happiness Officer of John’s Crazy Socks. He sets the tone and direction for our business. He leads a life full of gratitude and doing for others and that makes for a full life. He is the perfect leader for an organization with a mission to spread happiness.
