Kindful Kids Weekly

Quote of the Week

"Kindness is the golden chain by which society is bound together." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Crocheting Kindness

This week we are happy to share about the inspiring story of Jonah, the 15-year-old crocheting prodigy who donates his profits to Ethiopian kids in need. What began as a hobby around age 5 has blossomed into a beautiful entrepreneurial venture and also an initiative to spread love and generosity. Crocheting is an activity that deeply nourishes him and he once said: “After a very hard, busy, chaotic day in this busy world with school, it’s just nice to know that I can come home and crochet in my little corner of the house while sitting by the one I love most: my mom.”

Earlier this year when Jonah was recognized with an Award for Outstanding Youth in Philanthropy, he shared "Philanthropy doesn’t require a talent or platform, but rather an understanding that each of us can contribute with a giving heart. You can even start with something as simple as a ball of yarn and a hook, as in my case."
