Krochet Kids began with the incredible story of three college-age guys who liked to crochet sharing that skill with refugee women in Uganda. "Every purchase impacts a life and every product is hand-signed by the lady who made it." They sell high-quality, crocheted scarves for both men and women. (To also find their products in a retail store near you, click here.)

Trades of Hope sells products made by women who "have been rescued from sex slavery. Others are raising handicapped children alone. Some are in war torn countries and others have HIV/AIDS and leprosy...with Trades of Hope's help, their story has changed from pain and struggle to a story of hope!" They offer a beautiful selection of scarves.
