Father-son duo donate portion of sock proceeds to breast cancer charities
You've seen pink ribbons used to raise awareness about breast cancer, but what about pink socks?
Bags of Think Pink Socks were delivered to the West Islip Breast Cancer Coalition Monday.
John Cronin and his dad, Mark, who own John's Crazy Socks, use their sock company to raise awareness for charities. This month, it's for breast cancer.
Ten percent of their sales will go to the Cancer Coalition and Breast Cancer Research. The money raised helps support women during treatment.
When women leave the hospital after a breast cancer surgery, they are given a bag. It's called a Comfort Bag by the West Islip Breast Cancer Coalition. Inside are John's Crazy Socks, and they say it's a lovely way to spread a little happiness.
"I think it goes a long way. I mean, you're going through the toughest thing that you been through in your life and now you know that people are thinking of you," said Diane Fontana, of the West Islip Breast Cancer Coalition.
Not only is John's Crazy Socks donating 10% of its sales to breast cancer charities, it also is giving buyers a free mystery pair of socks with every order.
