In Matthew 22: 37-39 Jesus said, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’ 38 This is the great and foremost commandment. 39 The second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’
From day one Kerusso has been a giving company, strongly committed to giving and to loving our neighbor as ourselves through monetary and product donations. Kerusso not only proclaims the Good News to the world through products about Jesus but we put actions to our words and practice what we preach by giving back.
After the tragic events of 9/11 Kerusso not only developed Christian t-shirts that honored first responders and proclaimed hope through Jesus Christ but also gave more than $20,000 to the American Red Cross and The Salvation Army relief funds.
In 2005, Kerusso named Compassion International as the non-profit organization to receive a portion of the proceeds from our “Live For Him” project. To date, Kerusso has donated over $365,000 to Compassion through the sales of Live For Him products which include Live For Him Red Wristbands, Live For Him T-Shirts, Live For Him Caps and Live For Him Jewelry.
Many children will wait for six months or more until they are finally linked with a caring sponsor. But, by purchasing Live For Him merchandise short-term and immediate support helps many of these children who are waiting patiently. Please check out the Compassion Banner on our site and consider sponsoring a child in need!
Kerusso has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars, and tens of thousands of Christian T-Shirts to churches, boys' and girl’s ranches, prison ministries, women’s shelters, disaster relief groups and other charities nationwide.
Operation Christmas Child has been another ministry Kerusso has partnered with. Over the years Kerusso has helped collect thousands of shoeboxes filled with Christmas gifts that are distributed to children around the world.
Kerusso rose to the occasion once again in April and May of 2011 after tornadoes ripped through Alabama and Missouri killing hundreds of people and destroying millions of dollars of property. The devastation stretched hundreds of miles and impacted thousands of families. Kerusso partnered with a local ministry in Alabama to distribute 9000 t-shirts. And in May Kerusso provided two truckloads of supplies along with more than 8000 shirts.
Kerusso is also committed to reaching out and impacting the local community of Berryville and Eureka Springs Arkansas through giving. Since 2004 Kerusso has been awarding scholarships to local high school students through The Eureka Springs High School Larry Wicker Vocational Education Scholarship and The Berryville High School Scholarship for Higher Education. From their own backyard to foreign lands throughout the globe Kerusso gives back to fulfill the command of Jesus and proclaim the Good News to all creation.
