      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!!

    5. Creator Elizabeth Ramirez on November 21, 2011

      When are these hats going to be shipped!? I can't wait. Got the black one for my boyfriend. His birthday is in 3 weeks so I hope its shipped before then. Even if it comes late. I know it'll be awesome. Keep up the great work KKi!

      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 :)

    7. Creator Krochet Kids intl. on October 6, 2011

      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...

    8. Creator jenny skinner on September 27, 2011

      I can't believe I'm so excited about a hat! It's going to make someone a hell of a Christmas gift -- even if they get it late :)

    9. Creator Krochet Kids intl. on September 26, 2011

      Wow everyone! We can't believe the project is completed. Can't wait to get your hats made and to you. And yes, the hats will be signed by the lady who made them, in true Krochet Kids intl. fashion :)

    10. Creator Paul Panagiotes on September 26, 2011

      I also would like to know if these hats will be signed. I love that aspect of these hats.

    11. Creator Sebastian on September 24, 2011

      I have a question , will those also be signed ?

    12. Creator Natalie Cardenas on September 24, 2011

    17. Creator Patrick Lairson on September 23, 2011

      What a great kickstart to the project! I'm so excited to see you grow as a non-profit! I'll be excited to wear my black cap around this winter to show off to everyone!

    18. Creator Colfax Walker on September 23, 2011

    20. Creator Isabel Thottam on September 22, 2011

      I love krochet kids! Such a great group of people and what a great proud to have seen how this organization has grown over the years!

    21. Creator Jean Carlos on September 21, 2011

      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!

    22. Creator jenny skinner on September 21, 2011

      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! :)

    24. Creator Janelle Sookdeo on September 20, 2011

      This project is so cool I am happy to be lucky to be able to pledge. Keep up the good work! I would really love my hat in brown. Thank so much!

    25. Creator Elizabeth Vergara on September 20, 2011

      I am so happy to be able to pledge for this project. Im also happy to see that this is reaching areas even in Peru! I was born in Peru, and have seen how low the poverty can go there. Im very excited to see this project grow!

    26. Creator Joshua Scott Koskinen on September 20, 2011

      could I pledge $120 and get all 3 hats?

    27. Creator Cynthia Robbins (deleted) on September 20, 2011

      I would like a grey hat. Thanks!

    28. Creator Briana Langshaw on September 19, 2011

      I'm so excitied about this project! I hope you guys start more like this one in the future so I can continue to be apart of a change! :) Thank you

    29. Creator Krochet Kids intl. on September 18, 2011

      @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!

    30. Creator Mackenzie (deleted) on September 18, 2011

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

    31. 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?

    32. Creator Jamie on September 18, 2011

      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.

    33. Creator Pat Reynolds on September 15, 2011

      I saw your mission mentioned on TV and had to check it out! What a wonderful mission and glad to be able to be a part of it. Thank you for the opportunity. Can't wait to get some of the products.

    34. Creator Samantha Pathe on September 14, 2011

      This is brilliant

    35. Creator John C Cain Jr on September 7, 2011

      Looking forward to more things that Krochet Kids intl. have coming in the future.

    36. Creator Tiffany Ewigleben on August 24, 2011

      Thank you for starting this amazing program in Peru! My father is Peruvian, and while I can't afford to visit the country and work with people first hand-I can afford to support this project that will make a difference in so many people's lives. Thank you, thank you.

    37. Creator Krochet Kids intl. on August 23, 2011

      You all are amazing! Thanks for your support and your help spreading the word about this project. We can't wait to get these hats in your hands and introduce you to the individuals that are making them.

    38. Creator Matt McKenna on August 22, 2011

      Pledged pretty much all my paycheck :D Its really great to see people making a difference and i cant wait to see the impact you make on these peoples lives in Peru! I really hope i can help people the like you all are doing one day!

    39. Creator Cameron Smith on August 21, 2011

      Im so happy i did this, im a big fan of helping out. This was my gas money going towards this so i guess i wont drive as much. which is good. I dont know when i get my hat so if any one would comment back on that please

    40. Creator Meaghan Donovan on August 21, 2011

      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.

    41. Creator Sharon Courtwright on August 18, 2011

      Wouldn't this be incredible if we could raise the funds in ONE day! I posted on my facebook to share with all of my family and friends

    42. Creator Dave Donaldson on August 18, 2011

      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.
