Krochet Kids Changing The World 1 Hat At A Time

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A stitch in time apparently saves a lot more than just nine.

Meet the Krochet Kids...Three guys, yes, guys...avid skiiers who also loved to crochet. They liked the idea of creating their own unique headgear.

A local newspaper in their hometown of Spokane, WA officially dubbed them the Krochet Kids.

Soon, they got the idea to take their money-making business global, but not to make money for themselves. They set out on a mission to teach the world's poor how to break the cycle of poverty.

They took their yarn worldwide to teach crocheting...and since they started in 2007, the Krochet Kids have literally changed hundreds of lives.

Our hats off to them, literally and figuratively.
