We have so many amazing causes featured on our show. Here's how to learn more!

Jonah Larson's Roots Ethiopia Fundraiser

Introducing... Jonah's Limited Edition Crochet Kit: The Jonah Doll! Jonah teamed up with @vinniscolours and @yarnized on a crochet kit complete with a Pom Pom hat, Jonah jacket, and Ethiopian blanket! A portion of the proceeds will go to @rootsethiopia to fund Jonah's library in Ethiopia.

Roots Ethiopia partners with communities in Ethiopia to turn local ideas into lasting change. They work together to improve schools, educate children, enable livelihoods, and include everyone. Donating to Roots Ethiopia is just one of the ways Jonah Larson likes to “give back.” Roots Ethiopia helps families in the region where Jonah was born!

Also, to find out about how to help Jonah and his family return to Ethiopia to see the library/science lab Jonah built and to meet the children in his birth village who use those new facilities, check out Jonah's GoFundMe.
