The Shoe That Grows was invented to give children in poverty shoes that grow with them, instead of them wearing shoes several sizes too small or none at all! These amazing shoes grow five sizes and are the perfect way to keep your children in shoes that fit. And for every pair you buy, two pairs are donated to kids in need!
Krochet Kids began with the incredible story of three college-age guys who liked to crochet sharing that skill with refugee women in Uganda.

(To find their products in a retail store near you, click here.)
Three Cords Haiti (inspired by Ecclesiastes 4:9-12) vision is "to bring life transformation through an artisan business that focuses on employing Haitians with disabilities, as well as at-risk women."
