Krochet Kids (click the banner above) has quickly become one of my favorite clothing brands. The positive impact they are making inspires me daily to continue to make a difference by choosing to shop ethically and sustainably whenever possible. (Read more about my journey here) Brands like Krochet Kids, allow you to have a direct impact on the lives of individuals with each dollar you spend. As you can see from the photos, I am wearing the Eye See You Tee and the Mesa Bandana. Their clothing comes with a tag inside signed by the woman who created the article. You can then go to the Krochet Kids website, read her story and then have the opportunity to write to her! Isn't that amazing!
They are based in Uganda and Peru where they work to empower women, ultimately communities, to rise above poverty. From their website, "Empowerment is the reason why we exist. Our products, our programs, and our community work in unison to help people accomplish this goal. We believe in the capabilities of people. Our goal is to holistically equip people living in poverty with the skills, education, and resources to change their circumstances forever. Work provides worth. Education breeds innovation. Mentorship nourishes relationships. Through this multifaceted and measured approach we work with each beneficiary to create a path toward independence."
Krochet Kids recently celebrated their 10 year anniversary! WOW! 10 years of helping empower women to make a difference in their lives and others! I don't know about you, but this is where I want to choose to spend my money.
