WHY CROCHETING? Kohl: We crocheted in high school as a way to make money, taking orders from classmates. Our original goal was to pay for a hot-air balloon ride for our prom dates. But now crocheting, sewing and knitting are all used to create products that change people’s lives. Each product is signed by the woman who makes it so you see who you are impacting.
WHAT DOES A JOB MEAN? Travis: A job, coupled with education and mentorship, means our employees can put their own kids in school, feed their families a healthy diet, access clean water, buy medicine, invest in their own businesses and choose to rewrite their own futures.
