One thing that I miss about my life before being married is being able to do volunteer work. For almost two years, I volunteered at a food bank, CALL Primrose in Burlingame, California, and I absolutely loved it. So when Joe and I got married and moved up to South Lake Tahoe, that was one of the things that I had to let go of. I'm not saying if wasn't worth it. I love my husband and my new home. But, I am on the quest to find new ways to give back to the world and those in need.
I was watching How I Met Your Mother today and one of the commercials featured Krochet Kids International a nonprofit organization out of Uganda. If you haven't heard of this great corporation yet, it all started with three friends. These friends developed an idea and would go on to teach impoverish communities in Uganda how to crotchet and sell their items as a means to break the cycle.

As it gets colder here in South Lake Tahoe, I've got my eyes on the following knits from them.
The 5207.5 Beanie:
The Henry Tee:
My favorite part is that each handmade item is signed by the person who made it.
What nonprofits do you have your eye on loves?
