Krochet Kids

A few weeks ago my husband I attended a fundraising event for Krochet Kids. You would think that the cupcakes they served to us would be the most exciting part of the night to me, but actually learning about their organization was.

Krochet Kids is a non-profit organization that employs women in Uganda to crochet hats (beanies). I like them because not only do they teach these women how to crochet, they also teach them other useful skills that they can use after they leave Krochet Kids. Essentially, they give these women jobs and empowerment instead of giving them the items they need for survival. I really like the idea of giving people tools instead of the product. Krochet Kids is a great humanitarian organization that I would recommend to support to everybody.

If you'd like to learn more about them, you can check out their website. Or if you're interested in purchasing a hat, check out their store.
