#knowwhomadeit. Krochet Kids Shop For a Difference Giveaway

So as I write this post, "Redemption Song" is being sung on The Voice.  Such great lyrics, such a great song.  And I'm reading this,


And it sort of hits me like a ton of bricks.  So many people making a daily effort to change the world.  This one is so hard, and so good.  

"What would our world look like if we could know who made our products?"

Right?

Have you heard of Krochet Kids and the #KnowWhoMadeIt campaign?  

They are a non-profit that works with Women in Uganda and Peru, their model is 1. job  2. education  3. mentorship, giving these women skills and jobs to provide for themselves and their families, creating a sustainable future.

Every single item that Krochet Kids creates, is hand-signed by the person who created it.  I LOVE this gift idea.  I have already outfitted myself and my family, now on to Christmas presents...and maybe just this one more for myself.     

#knowwhomadeit

I love how personal this signature makes it.  We visited the Krochet Kids headquarters and there were success stories of women on the wall, one in particular, because of her job with Krochet Kids, now had a metal roof over her home, literally providing shelter for her family.  This is a story I can share with my children and help them to understand the impact can we have.   

The cherry on top, Krochet Kids has now started making clothing, and it's good.

  4. Pendants were certainly ubiquitous, adorning and accentuating rockabilly clothing fashions. Some common styles included cute cartoon-y pictures
