Text message gone… right!

 

If you haven’t seen the screen shot of the conversation between a young woman and father of six Tony Wood, then you are missing out! Sydney and her  friend Mandy were in search of the perfect prom dress, and sent a picture of an option of one to a random number on accident. Tony Wood was the man who accidently received the text and kindly responded with a picture of his five kids with their thumbs up and a text that read, “ I believe this message was intended for someone else. My wife isn’t home, so I couldn’t get her opinion, but the kids and I think you look stunning in your dress! You should defiantly go with that one!”

Mandy put the screen shots all over twitter, which then uncovered some information about the Woods family that the media did not know. The reason why Tony’s wife wasn’t home was because she was with their 4 year old child (who also wasn’t pictured) in the hospital, as he is diagnosed with leukemia. All of the attention on the family, also raised awareness of their story and go fund me page! The account now has $5,000 over their $10,000 goal.

Socks, Socks, and More Socks

21 year old son John Cronin, and his father Mark Cronin have started a business that not only brings a powerful message but also some warm socks! John Cronin has down syndrome and struggled with what to do after high school. He had always had a love for socks, and he knew that some how he wanted to turn his passion into a life style. The Cronin men started Johns Crazy Socks which is a business where they pick out different brands of socks and sell them! In  just one year they’ve shipped over 42,000 orders and brought millions of dollars in revenue.

 

The factors that take part in making their business successful is the fact that with every purchase, the customer receives a personalized letter from John himself. The company also only hires people with down syndrome to show that just because they have this syndrome, that they are still capable of doing anything. With every purchase of these crazy socks, 5% goes towards Special Olympics.

John Cronin, told the TODAY show “ I have down syndrome and it never holds me back.”
