That’s right. I had the pleasure of attending the American Giving Awards and watching Krochet Kids intl. take home $500,000.000!! THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this possible! This entire experience is something I will never forget.
Here is a photo I did with another intern and Kohl one of the founders of Krochet Kids intl. We are kicking it into full swing at the HQ. If you haven’t already please vote for us! http:/bit.ly/vote4kki
As part of our efforts to spread word about our campaign I painted one of the walls at work. Here it is. I was pretty impressed with myself. This was one of the coolest projects I’ve worked on thus far. I love my job!
Krochet Kids intl. has been nominated as 1 out of 25 charities to be a part of Chase’s American Giving Awards! And with your help we can win $1 MILLION! But in order to this we need all the help we can get! Find out what we plan to do with that $1 million and how you can get involved here.
For those of you who don’t know Krochet Kids intl. is an amazing organization that helps provide jobs to women in Uganda and Peru. It started with out with 3 guys who traveled to Uganda and asked the people how they could help; they told them they wanted jobs. So they taught them the one skill the knew, crochet. Now we have over 150 women working to make hats and other crochet items. The money from sales goes back to the women for wages, education, and mentorship programs.
One thing that makes this organization so cool is that when a lady is done making her product she signs her name on the tag. So when you buy the hat, scarf, or bow tie you can look for the signature on your item to see who made it. Then you can go to our website and look up her name and learn about her story and even thank her for making your product!
I may just be a Graphic Design Intern for this organization, but this is something that means a lot to me. I’ve been following this cause 3 years prior to my actual involvement that I do now. PLEASE support our cause!
