Krochet Kids Knitted Hats
These hats and accessories are fabulicious. Several people on my Christmas list will find Krochet Kids items under the tree. They have hats for men and women, as well as scarves, tees, headbands, and even bow ties.
Why I Like This:
Krochet Kids started with three guys teaching people living in camps in Northern Uganda how to crochet hats. Their goal is sustainable economic development. They teach people how to crochet, give them a job, educate and mentor them in personal budgeting, saving and loaning, and business development. They help people who are sick of living off of the government and aid organizations to become self sufficient. I LOVE what these guys are doing, because it’s similar to what I’m working with HopeChest to do in Adacar, Uganda. They post thank you notes on their site from the buyers to the women who make the hats. So fun to see all the sweet comments from happy customers. Next time I’m in Northern Uganda I wonder if I can find these guys….
Slave-Free Christmas Challenge:
This Christmas, I’ve challenged myself to shop my entire Christmas list from organizations that are helping people, not hurting people. Today, 27 million men, women, and children live as someone else’s property. Slaves are making the items that I’m buying to celebrate the birth of my Lord and Savior. Somehow I don’t think He’s blessed by the blood on His birthday presents. For more information on my Slave-Free Christmas project, click here.
