Great new idea - Krochet Kids
I just read a news story about this group and thought it was very interesting and a great idea. It's called Krochet Kids and was started by a few guys while they were in college. They have gone to Africa to teach women how to crochet, and then they will sell the items the women make in the U.S. and the money will go back into the communities that they live in. It's such a great concept because not only are they going to be donating money to these women and communities, but they are also giving them a way to provide for their families by learning the craft. I just think this is a unique and great idea so I thought I'd share

Their site is http://www.krochetkidsinternational.com/index.html
