La Aventura Del Amor

Last Tuesday evening, Jeffrey and I participated in the 3rd Annual Krochet Kids international Gala. We knew that it was going to be awesome, but had no idea how much progress they have made in their efforts in Uganda. They announced that 2010 will officially mark the year that their program in Uganda was fully sustained by hat sales alone. This is a HUGE accomplishment for them. Not only are they a huge success story, but they continue to expand their business and grow as human beings.

An Evolution in Business

One thing Kohl Crecelius, CEO of KKi, said during his talk that really stuck with me was that they’re at the forefront of a revolution in business. That, in a few years, the terms “Social Entrepreneur” will be gone, and all entrepreneurs will inherently care about the social ramifications of their business.

I couldn’t agree more. And I’m excited about where they’re headed.

The Krochet Kids business model is built around love, caring and the idea that a few passionate kids with an idea can change the world. They are bringing back the human element to business. They are bringing the world into your own backyard by connecting consumers with producers.

As their web developer, we feel invested in their success because it makes us look good to our future customers, but on a human level we are determined to do everything we can to make their efforts successful because it’s the best thing for humanity. I hope that their business inspires you to make changes to your business that will bring people closer together.
