Knit One Change One Christmas Campaign
Updated: Sep 30, 2020
Countless initiatives are being born every day by amazing individuals who are helping to create social change. We thought we would take the opportunity to share a story that has inspired us.
Danielle Chiel, the owner, and founder of KOCO (Knit One Change One) her Australian company, formed in partnership with women who live in rural villages of southern India.
Together, they hand-knit for global fashion brands and other supply other hand-knitted products of which the proceeds are used to help train, employ and empower these women who are unskilled and have no way of earning to help support their families.
KOCO is reawakening the world to the beauty of handknits. We're reaching out to brands who share our values. Every fashion piece and soft homeware we hand-knit comes with an empowering story of how this item changed the life of its maker. KOCO's mission is to employ 40,000 women in rural southern India, breaking negative economic cycles and ensuring the future viability of village life.
With Christmas, well on the way, Danielle is promoting gorgeous hand-knitted Christmas decorations, of which the proceeds will go toward her Knit One Change One Project. By purchasing 12 Christmas Baubles, you will be helping to employ one woman for an entire week.
Daniel is aiming to sell 6000 Christmas Baubles she can take her training program into another village and begin to create further social change.
