Jenifer,
Thank you for making my "X" End it movement shirt. I can imagine you taking your precious time on making my shirt that symbolizes something that is so much bigger than the both of us. A movement that is to raise awareness of the slavery in this world. Anyways, thank you so much for your patience and your hands for making it. I am praying for you my sweet lady and your children's success, as well as, for your second story of your home!! Keep on being you my friend.

Love,
Mary from Florida

HI Jennifer!

Like several have previously said, I also purchased a shirt you made from the Passion Conference in Atlanta, Georgia with the big red X for the End It Movement on the front. I am just now sending you a thank you because I wasn't quite sure what to say when I did thank you for the hard work and dedication you put in to making this shirt. To me, it's not just a shirt. When I wear this shirt and when it's folded and put away for the next time it has been a constant reminder of God's love. God has placed us all here to make a difference and you have made a huge impact on my life. I truly appreciate all of the work you have done and will ever do! But more importantly, God appreciates it! You have done such a miraculous job by making the items you have for others around the world. I hope and pray for God to continue to bless you and allow that 2nd story to be built for your home. I pray blessings onto you, your family, and your children. Thank you so much for this soft, comfy t-shirt that has no meaning to people who see me wearing it but to me means so much more!

God bless,
Katie

Thank you for making my hat. I don't have much hair, so this will keep me very warm in the harsh winters of Indiana. I am a student, and I like to walk through forests too. I hope you get to add onto your home. I am very encouraged by the work that you do for your family.

Dear Jenifer,

I recently bought a t-shirt with a red X on it, to signify the End It Movement, at the Passion conference in Atlanta, Georgia. I was so surprised when I found it had the maker's name on the tag. Thank you for the beautiful work you did on this shirt, I am proud to wear something handmade that is helping someone across the globe. My sister has been to Peru on a mission trip and I hope I get to visit your country some day. I pray that God bless you and your family beyond what you could think or ask and that you do get to build that second story on your house. God bless you! -Faith

Jenifer,

Thank you for your beautiful work. I purchased one of the head warmers in brown and black. I thought it was awesome to see that you signed my head wrap but to go to the website and make the connection in this manner was not expected. Keep your head high, your building the foundation for your future in each lovely stitch. Gracias! - Crystal

Dear Jenifer,
I first saw your product at the Passion 2017 concert in Atlanta, Georgia. I had never heard of this company, and saw the black cotton shirts with a red x on them to symbolize the end it movement. I love the message it holds and it is so soft. Thank you so much for giving me this wonderful product. I pray for you everyday and am proud to have your name forever on my shirt. God bless you. I hope you are able to support your children and accomplish everything you wish to. L

Jenifer,

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for this beautiful headband you made for me. My boyfriend got it for me as a Christmas present and I loved it immediately. I had never heard of the company KK until this gift and I think it is such an amazing program. I am a social worker so I appreciate companies like this. I hope you love what you do, and I know you're an inspiration to your kids. Don't ever give up!
