Day 10 Goods for a Cause: Hats for Hunger

Wow!  This has got to be the youngest social entrepreneur that I have read about!  I thought Blake Mycoskie was young when he founded Toms at 34, but Andrew Castle was 8 when he founded Hats for Hunger in 2008!

Andrew started knitting hats to support Heifer International (featured on Day 9 Goods for a Cause).  Now volunteers help him in his effort to fight poverty by knitting hats.  I love hats and there are some really fun ones that you can order from the Hats for Hunger Website.

If you are a knitter, sewer, felter, or crafter, you may want to help fight hunger one hat at a time.  When you knit a hat for Hats for Hunger, 100% of the profits help fight hunger.  Hats for Hunger also loves yarn donations.  So there are more than one way to help out our youngest social entrepreneur.

Follow Hats for Hunger on Facebook and Twitter.

Appreciatively,

Lynn

    Hi Rachel, Your son is a special person and someone for us all to admire. It will be fun to see what he does next! And, I have corrected his name in my blog post.
    Appreciatively,
