K is for Krochet Kids

Krochet Kids is an organization started by a guy who crochets, who taught his friends to crochet and then they all travelled to Uganda and had a brilliant idea!!  They taught a few Ugandan women to crochet hats so that they could sell them here in the United States.  (Check out the Krochet Kids website- also Nordstrom)!

Their motto became "Buy a hat change a life".
So... a handful of Ugandan women has turned into a hundred plus women in both Uganda and Peru using a fabulous skill to support themselves... I think that's kool.

So please google Krochet Kids and watch the Bing Originals short video... I promise- you will be so encouraged.
