The Power of "Thank You"
We began the #knowwhomovement movement because we recognized there was disconnect between those who create and those who consume products. We believe that products have value because people do and that by bridging the gap between maker and receiver, we can positively impact both parties in a lasting way. To transform this idea into reality, every KK intl. item includes a tag that is hand-signed by the beneficiary who made it. You can view her profile on the website, engage with her individual story, and, most importantly, you can send her a thank-you note for the product she created. The responses to this movement have been overwhelming! People from across the world have sent notes to our beneficiaries in Uganda and Peru thanking them for their work and their story. It’s amazing to witness the mutual encouragement that occurs when people are brought together in an authentic space, and it’s these connections that drive our ability to make a sustainable impact in the lives of those we are empowering. Share with us in our movement by enjoying a few thank you notes written from supporters across the globe. “Dear Laker Florence, thank you so much for the bow. It is very beautiful. Thank you for all you have done and who you are as a person. I want to grow up to be someone who is as strong and courageous as you are. It is very cool that I can see who made my product; it’s like passing things down from one person to another. We are all connected. We should pay it forward. So, I thank you for that, and I thank you for never giving up and being supportive to your family. Sincerely, Julia B.” “Carmen, I just bought your tank top and it’s the most wonderful piece of clothing!

You sound like one of those strong women who can do anything if given the opportunity! We are from the United States, but we have visited Northern Uganda. The people of Uganda were so warm, grateful and resilient that we keep going back. We love your country and the Ugandan people. I will look for your name every time I see KKi items in the store. Thank you again and blessings to you and your family. Elaine L.” “Hi Sabrina! Today, I purchased one of the outstanding shirts you made! Being able to wear your shirt constantly reminds me of how privileged I am to have the opportunities that I do in Canada. The beautiful pocket worn just over my heart is also a reminder to stay humble and love every moment I am blessed to live. Your work is inspiring and I’m so proud of you for being passionate about your dreams. I know that with your dedication and passion, you WILL be able to have your own business one day. Thank you for providing me clothing that helps me provide for others. Now, with the knowledge I have about KKi, I will be able to encourage my friends and family to contribute to a brighter and sustainable future for others. Thank you for your perseverance, your hard work, and my wonderful t-shirt. Your new friend, Liane A.” “Jackline, thank you for your beautiful work. My husband and I attended a Christian event today and we saw the KKi booth and fell in love with the owl beanie for our baby girl. As I found out more about this organization, that beanie started to mean a lot more than just a beanie. May God bless you, and may all your hopes and dreams be fulfilled. Thank you, Martha J.” Carve out some time to meet the woman who made your product and send her a “thank you” today!
