Krochet Kids international released their SPRING 2010 accessory line, which boasts a variety of brand new items and an opportunity for customers to personally thank the lady who made their product. As a non-profit organization KKi has successfully blended humanitarian work and business in order to create a sustainable cycle of empowerment for communities in developing nations. All proceeds from product sales go to funding their work in Northern Uganda. But the story does not end there.
In an effort to further create a relationship between their customers and the war-affected populations they work with in Uganda, Krochet Kids international has launched a new campaign titled 'Thank (YOU)ganda'. Since every accessory comes hand-signed by its maker, KKi has launched a new website that allows its customers to submit a video, a photo, or a note thanking the lady for their product. At http://thankyouganda.com anyone can learn the stories of the crocheters in Uganda and know how they are directly helping them accomplish their dreams by simply purchasing a hat.
As a company, KKi prides itself on the fashionable products they create. Starting initially with a line of headwear, they have since expanded into producing a number of accessory pieces. The release of their SPRING 2010 line was no exception. The hats feature amazing yarn blends made up of angora, wool, and nylon, while the introduction of a new laptop case challenges the idea of what can be produced in Sub-saharan Africa. 'The Steven' laptop case is made exclusively for the 13" MacBook and a portion of its proceeds go to funding children's education. View all products online at http://krochetkids.org.
'Thank (YOU)ganda' serves as yet another positive step Krochet Kids international is taking to raise the consumer consciousness about how products are made. Join with them in sharing this story and empowering communities around the globe.
Buy a hat. Change a life.
