On Friday, May 14,John’s Crazy Socks will be recognized as a Community Honoree during the Stronger Together: Virtual Benefit for Good Samaritan Hospital. Good Samaritan will recognize John and Mark X. Cronin, co-founders of John’s Crazy Socks, for their support of the hospital and frontline workers during the pandemic year.
What’s John’s favorite pair of socks? John would rather tell you why he likes crazy socks than pick any one pair of socks. Why crazy socks? “They’re fun, comfortable and creative. They always let me be me.”
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.
John’s Crazy Socks is proud to report that three of its athletes, John Cronin, Andrew Oh and Liam Mrotzek, returned home from the 2018 Special Olympics Winter Games, held in Rochester, N.Y., from February 23-25, bringing back gold, silver and bronze medals.
Every business has to answer the question, “Why?” Why this business? Why this approach? What motivates you to start the venture and what will help you power through the inevitable bumps along the way? For John’s Crazy Socks, the inspiration comes from our namesake, John Cronin. It is a story of love, an openness to adventure, a sense of self expressed through fashion and a desire to spread joy. Those are hallmarks of John’s life and they are what motivates and shapes John’s Crazy Socks.
