If you know me, or have been reading this blog... you know I love the idea that craft and social entrepreneurship can change the world (It's a part of my graduate thesis)! A lot of companies are using craft based products (crochet and jewelry making in Uganda, knitting in Peru, fabric batik in Ghana) to provide jobs and a starting place for economic growth in areas with a lot of poverty.
For the past few Christmases, I have posted about companies you can buy from that not only make great products, but are working to make the world a better place. Now you can see them all gathered on one easy site. World changing has NEVER been so easy. Check out Tom's Marketplace to see how they have brought a ton of cool companies together to change the world through how we shop.
AND I LOVED seeing my old bosses from Krochet Kids international up there... AND even one of the products I helped work on during my time there... the Hoot!
Go shop. Buy cool things. Make the world a better place. Feel awesome. It's that simple.
