Charity Spotlight

It all started back when they were in high school. Three regular dudes who loved to ski and snowboard picked up some crochet hooks and learned to crochet hats that they could wear on the slopes. They enjoyed crocheting so much that they even sold a few hats to family and friends.

Later on in college, a trip to Uganda gave them a deep desire to help others break out of the cycle of poverty. They thought about what they had to offer — and they turned back to the humble crochet hook and decided that was all they needed to get started and make a lasting difference.

Since then, they launched their own nonprofit called Krochet Kids International. They work with people in Uganda and Peru and teach them how to crochet. By paying fair wages and selling the finished crocheted items on their website, they are helping to empower and employ over 150 people.
