John’s Crazy Socks Introduces Down Syndrome Super Box


John’s Crazy Socks has introduced a Down Syndrome Super Box comprised of 21 items from entrepreneurs with Down syndrome. The Super Box demonstrates the talents and achievements of these business leaders with Down syndrome. Most importantly, the Down Syndrome Super Box will delight customers. 


John Cronin, co-founder of John’s Crazy Socks, said, “I have Down syndrome and I am proud of my business. This Super Box shows that people with Down syndrome can be entrepreneurs and can have great businesses.”


Blake Pyron from Blake’s Snow Shack said, “We love being a part of the Down Syndrome Super Box. I run a great business and I want the world to see what I can do.”


The National Down Syndrome Society is supporting the Down Syndrome Super Box as part of their program to promote self-advocate businesses. John’s Crazy Socks is donating $2 from the sale of each box to support the work of NDSS.


Kandi Pickard, CEO of NDSS, said, “The Down Syndrome Super Box is an excellent way to spread awareness and build excitement surrounding entrepreneurs with Down syndrome. We are so excited to help demonstrate the achievements and hard work of entrepreneurs with Down syndrome across the country.”


Mark X. Cronin, John’s co-founder and father, said, “The unemployment rate among people with a disability is 80 percent. We want people with differing abilities to see that entrepreneurship is an option and we want businesses to see the valuable work that people with differing abilities can perform.”
