Krochet Kids FoundersMost companies allow their bottom line to be the sole driving force behind the decisions and direction for their company. How many companies take a vision and a mission and stick to it without wavering? Not many.

Krochet Kids International is a non-profit company that has formed their business around the founders' unwavering dedication to help those less fortunate. Three high school friends, Kohl Crecelius, Travis Hartanov and Stewart Ramsey in Spokane, Wa., planted the seed for the company before they were old enough to vote. They began by crocheting and selling hats to raise funds for their high school prom.

After attending college, Crecelius, Hartanov and Ramsey wanted to make an impact towards those that lived in poverty around the world. The company planted its operational roots in war-torn Northern Uganda.

A group of women were taught to crochet and produce the hats and scarves that Krochet Kids sells. The women now have a valuable skill and are paid the equivalent to a Ugandan teacher's salary. The non-profit structure of Krochet Kids ensures that the company puts the money back into making a difference in Northern Uganda.

Krochet Kids offers a line of hats that are comfortable, stylish, and warm. The hats are either 100% acrylic or an acrylic and wool blend. Each style of hat comes in a variety of color schemes and retail from $20 to $30.
