Love it! Exactly what I expected with a beautiful story behind the product. Couldn't be happier about this purchase.
The Story of DeBrosse
I first learned to crochet so that I could make blankets for boys and girls growing up in the orphanages of Haiti. One of my first blankets went to a bright-eyed 4 year old boy named DeBrosse. He is as mischievous as he is lovable, and his story forever changed the way I see the world.
I opened this shop in his name, setting aside 15% of all sales to help fund our two partner orphanages. Your money works to do things like sponsor a child through a year of school, ensure a newborn has access to nutritional formula, and provide a young reader a book in his native language.
As of August 2016, I took a more proactive approach to orphan care, and invested in their mothers. The lack of job opportunity forces many Haitian women to leave their children as orphans, as is the case with little DeBrosse and his mother Kathia. You can read about that adventure here: http://sampur.se/2bR7l0J
With great joy, I am excited to announce that your purchase now also provides a job, stability, and dignity to Kathia, who has been wildly underestimated for far too long.

Call me T. I work and play in New York City and rural Haiti. My heart swells for all things orphan care, so I learned how to crochet to create a space that advocates for them, and shares their stories. Thanks for joining me in this adventure.

Kathia is as fierce as she is generous. Her craftsmanship rivals those who have gone before her. She is the brave mama of 4 little ones, one of whom the shop was named after. It is a story full of grace and wonder, and has only just begun.
