The Williams Syndrome Awareness Crew Socks celebrate all people with Williams Syndrome. Every time someone asks you about your distinctive and beautiful socks, you will help raise awareness of Williams syndrome. Every purchase helps fund important services and outreach as we donate 10% from the sale of each pair to the Williams Syndrome Association.
The open hands and heart are the symbol of Williams syndrome, signifying the love and openness of people with Williams syndrome. The bright colors against the white background reveal their bright spirits.
John’s Crazy Socks was co-founded by John Cronin, a young man with Down syndrome, a chromosomal condition like Williams syndrome. John understands the challenges people with Williams syndrome face just as he recognizes their ability to bring joy to so many and to make contributions to society.
