As soon as I heard about the children’s book One Plastic Bag, I knew that I needed to get my hands on a copy of it. I wrote a preview of the book here. I’ve now received my copy of the book and am thrilled to be able to share even more about it with you.
I am thrilled today to introduce you to CARE Knows How, a storytelling campaign initiated by CARE, a leading humanitarian organization working to fight global poverty. In this post I’ll share my story, what CARE is all about, why I’m inspired by the campaign and how it all relates to crochet.
