      Got my hat and cool Peru llamas bag! The hat is soft and beautiful and so well made. Good job, Jacqui. I got a black hat. It was laying on my desk and my black cat, Miss Mama Kitty, thought it was all for her and won't get off of it. So, Jacqui, she thanks you too!!

      I spotted Krochet Kids hats today in a local Nashville Store (Two Old Hippies) and it totally made my day! My boyfriend bought the hat after I told him about this amazing organization! Can't wait to get mine :)

      Yes everyone, it is too late to pledge to this project, and the featured hats will not be for sale elsewhere. However, there will be opportunities to purchase other hats from Peru in the month ahead! Stay tuned...

      I learned about your organization through the Bing commercial. I went to your website and found this page. As a crocheter myself, I had to back you - even though you're well beyond your goal. :) Congratulations and well done!

      This is a great idea, and as someone who has been struggling to find employment for four years, i'm thrilled to make a donation that will give some other woman a chance for success and independence AND will get me a great hat -- in brown, please! :)

      @Michael and @Mackenzie... you only need to pledge an additional $20 if you need us to ship any items internationally (that is, outside of the US). I hope that clears it up!

      Thanks for your pledges!

      I'm so confused too, I also pledged $40 and was wondering if I had to another $20? Hopefully someone can answer : ) Thanks

      Creator Michael on September 18, 2011

      This is awesome!
      but i'm a tad confused, I pledged $40, do i need to pledge another $20 to get the hat shipped?

      I think this is such a great idea. I went backpacking throughout Peru 2 years ago and I think this is a perfect project. So many live in poverty but the skills of crochet are definitely there. I am a crocheter myself and was amazed at some of the beautiful creations I saw from the women of this country.

      There are so many reasons why everyone we know should be backing this but most of all it is because this something that is truly empowering those who need it most. There is something to be said for recognizing when something needs to be done and one small step by more than one person can make a difference.

      We're taking a lesson from our 7-year-old daughter, Faith, who gave up getting a new lunchbox to donate towards the famine in Africa. I just worked some OT yesterday and we are going to pledge that money to KKP instead of spending it on ourselves.

      I challenge others to do the same and let us know what you are sacrificing.
