When most people think of crochet, they probably picture little old ladies…but this young boy is busting stereotypes and giving to charity at the same time!
11-year old Jonah Larson has a passion for crochet, and incredible skills to go along with it. His interest began at only 5 years old, where he used a YouTube tutorial to crochet his first project – a dishcloth. Since then, he has created hundreds of items and received orders from all over the world.
Best of all, Jonah gives a lot of his earnings to charity. He was adopted from an orphanage in Ethiopia, and loves to send funds back to them to help other children. He also has a GoFundMe page for RootsEthiopia, a non-profit that helps local schools buy supplies.
One of his videos has a quote from Jonah that I love: “Very frequently on the news, there’s a lot of bad things happening in the world. But thankfully, there’s a lot of good things too. This coming 2019, I’m going to focus on the good things, not the bad things you see on the news. And I hope you do too.” What a great attitude to have!
Jonah seems wise beyond his years, and his dedication and giving spirit is an inspiration to us all!
