The Gift Of Giving | Krochet Kids International |

Monday, December 3, 2012

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I was having a pretty excellent one myself until I got the flu on Saturday night. The same flu I was so pleased with myself for not getting from my kids last week, d'oh! Good thing I am healthy of the mind and spirit because my body is having some trouble not getting injured or sick lately. Well, without further ado here is another of my favorite places to give, the story behind this organization gives me the warm fuzzies every time I read it.

The organization, Krochet Kids International, was founded by a few snow lovin' guys who took up the art of crochet. One of "the guys," Kohl Crecelius CEO and founder, was taught by his older brother to crochet. he then in turn taught a couple of his guy friends. (Um, how awesome is that?!) While in high school they started selling their hats to admires. Fast forward several years and they started the Krochet Kids non-profit in an effort to empower others to rise above poverty - by crocheting of course. For more info watch the video and check out their site. It is nothing short of inspiring. Another fabulous way to get a gift and give a gift.


  1. I got the flu too and my weekend was so much less than great.
    That's another great organization you're presenting. There are so many ways of helping each other.

  2. Feel better soon! Send me an email at - it'd be great to tell you about the nonprofit endeavour I've been working on for the past year

  3. Another awesome find, Christine! Feel better, dear! Rest and hydrate!!

  4. The flu??! Oh no! Drink lots of fluids and watch lots of indulgently bad television and you'll be back to full-health in no time :) Seriously though, you poor thing! Leave it to you to still find an amazing charitable cause in your state. :) I LOVE these hats so much, and I'm in dire need of a new one, so perfect timing!

  5. This is my favourite series on the blogosphere right now. I love those hats. And the story is so cool.

    I'm sorry you have the flu. Feel better soon!

  6. I've heard of the Krochet Kids, and LOVE it!!

    I hope you feel better soon. The flu is no fun at all.

  7. So sorry to hear about the flu! My fiance is sick this weekend and today and I hope the both of you feel better soon!
    As for this, it's super cool. That's a really awesome way to raise awareness about poverty.

  8. Sounds like such a great organization! I also got that darn flu. Hope it goes quickly.

  9. Oh dear, it sounds like you are where I was one week ago. In all the time I spent in bed, I probably could have read three books. Instead, I indulged in bad tv. Oh well. Hope you feel better soon!
    That video is really great. I loved how they filmed it and put everything together. Another thing I love that each hat is personally signed. You definitely find some great organizations and worthy causes.
