For The Fun One
John’s Crazy Socks is a Local Huntington father-son venture inspired by John Lee Cronin, a young man with Down syndrome, and his love of colorful and fun socks, or what he calls his “crazy socks.”
Giving Back: They donate 5 percent of their earnings to the Special Olympics and they’ve created a series of Awareness and Charity socks and donate money from each pair of socks to causes like Down syndrome and Autism awareness, the Special Olympics and breast cancer research.
