I had the pleasure of meeting Kohl Crecelius and Stewart Ramsey — founders of Krochet Kids International — at Aspen Fashion Week in 2012. I was naturally drawn to them for some reason. They had sincere smiles and the kind of positive energy that you would expect from a pair of lifelong friends. As I got to know them throughout the week, I came to realize that these two young men from the Pacific Northwest where not like the other people attending the outerwear-specific runway shows in Aspen. They were special. They were a gift from the gods of good, put on this earth to educate and empower communities in underdeveloped nations to “rise above poverty”.
