    Krochet Kids: Buy a Hat, Change a Life!

    Krochet Kids is an organization that helps people rise above poverty. The founders were three typical students who loved snow sports, surfing and creating their own headwear. One of the three learned to crochet from his older brother and taught his two friends. Friends bought their beanies and in their hometown of Spokane,WA, they became known as the “Krochet Kids.”

    After traveling to Uganda for a summer, one of them came back and told the other two founders about the poverty in Africa and the different government camps that were running the villages. The three came up with an idea to help these families begin new lives: They would teach them how to crochet so they could earn fair wages and rise above poverty.

    Since 2008, the company has grown and many lives have been impacted.

    Today, over 150 people in Uganda and Peru are working, receiving education, and being mentored toward a brighter future. The products created abroad have been well received here at home and the collaboration of our staff and beneficiaries around the globe has created a sustainable cycle of employment and empowerment (krochetkids.org).

    Krochet Kids offers an assortment of hats in different colors. In addition, they have added different t-shirts, scarfs and a Krochet Kids tote bag to their inventory. Krochet Kids gear is available for purchase online and proceeds go to the families and individuals in need. Buy a hat. Change a life.

    I love this cause because it is so inspiring, life-altering and creative. Not only has it reached people in Africa but more and more people are learning about it here in the U.S. Stores like Nordstrom carry the Krochet Kids merchandise and it is bring about a global awareness. I want to be able to change the world like these three young innovators. One of the three founders attended my former school, Vanguard University of Southern California. I am so encouraged when young people are impacting the Kingdom of God and making purposeful changes in society and nationally.

    PI girls, what’s your favorite Krochet Kids item and what inspires you to change the world?
