This guest post is from Erik, who handles international sales at Lion Brand.

My daughter, Blake recently returned from Peru, South America, where she volunteered at a children’s orphanage in the ancient city of Cusco near legendary Macchu Picchu. I wanted to share some of her photos of the young children. She experienced first-hand the sense the pleasure of giving by enhancing the kids’ basic learning steps. In the town of Cusco, where she stayed, she also had the unique experience of seeing local Peruvian yarn made.
