Meet Karol. She is one of the hardest working 21 year olds you have ever seen. Karol was left with the burden of taking care of her 8 younger siblings when she was 17 years old. At the time baby Bridget was <1, Aaron 2, Micheal 3, Dulce 5, Genesis 8, Angie 10, Jose 13 and Cinithia 16. It was heartbreaking that a 17 year old was left to make sure these kids were fed every night and had the medical attention they needed when they got sick. All of this without any opportunity to make money.
Soon Karol started sewing for One Common Thread along with her sister Cinthia. It has been a very hard 4 years and now the kids have been split up but Karol still takes care of Bridget 4 Micheal 7, Dulce 8, Genesis 10, and Angie 12. Karol now has a baby of her own. Her responsibility is still great but she now lives 4 hours outside of the city so her sewing is much more sporadic but we still feel so much love for Karol because she is doing her best with a very tough reality. Please consider helping Karol. She is amazingly tough and works very hard to keep these kids not only fed but safe as well.
