We hear stories all the time of God at work through the faith-based messages on our shirts — like this one:
“I want to say a big, ‘Thanks’ to Kerusso. We are a family who likes to live our faith out loud, and your products are some of our best conversation openers. We once met a woman while on vacation in Colorado, and as usual we were all wearing a Kerusso shirt of some kind. While shopping, a woman came up from behind us and remarked how brave we must be. It was our walking testimony, wearing our shirts.
This opened an amazing door to a conversation about Christ that lasted quite some time. We were able to tell her about Christ’s plan of salvation, and how to receive it. She said she had never felt like asking anyone about these things before until she saw us so openly wearing His name.... That is just one of many conversations that have been initiated because of your company’s efforts to share the gospel. Thanks, and God Bless your ministry.”
—Karen P. & Family
Or this one...
“God works in amazing ways! Little did I know the bright red 3:16 ‘Numbers of Hope’ T-shirt I decided to wear one day was going to make such a difference to a person’s life. A woman approached me while we were at McDonald’s and asked me without hesitation, ‘What does 3:16 mean?’ I was somewhat surprised, and before I could answer, she explained that for the past two weeks prior to that moment, she’d had the same dream every night...with the numbers 3:16 distinct in all of them!
So, I shared the verse and turned around for her to read it as it was written on the back of the shirt. I told her it was probably the most famous Scripture, and where she could find it in the Bible. This encounter took only 5 minutes, but that’s all the Lord needs to do His work!
I get goosebumps every time I share this small but awesome testimony. Praise God! A humble T-shirt was instrumental in bringing a seeking heart to Him!”

In 2005, Kerusso partnered with Global Humanitarian Organization, Compassion International, to launch an ongoing campaign that would invite our customers to support their mission of providing children with clean water, health care, education, nutrition, and biblical teaching and nurturing, helping children not just survive, but thrive, in Jesus' name. The summer after the Live for Him Red Wristband Project launched, we were able to present Compassion with a check for $250,000. Well, over a million red rubber wristbands have been sold, and because of God’s grace and the support of our customers, over $400,000 has been raised for Compassion. Learn more about sponsoring a child through Compassion International at www.compassion.com.
Through over 30 years of daily interaction with faith‐based consumers, Kerusso has become the world’s leading expert on meaningful Christian products. This experience has earned the trust of ministries who partner with Kerusso to create and deliver products and services that help them effectively fulfill their mission. Our work on behalf of our Ministry Partners allows them to focus on what God has called them to do. We are blessed to work with ministries including MOPS International, National Day of Prayer, National Bible Bee, Iron Sharpens Iron, Ark Encounter, and more.
Tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes...when disasters like these occur, thousands of people can be left with nothing. Their needs are real, and they are urgent. Over the years, we’ve literally shipped tons of T-shirts to help clothe the survivors of the Haiti earthquake, Hurricanes Katrina and Ike, and the devastating tornadoes that ravaged the south in 2011. When events like this occur, we partner with organizations including Convoy of Hope and Catholic Charities to mobilize massive shipments of clothing — 5,000, 15,000, and 20,000 T-shirts sent to provide basic necessity to those in need, and to give hope in the form of messages about our Creator when they need Him most.
September 11, 2001. Like everyone in America, we watched with horror and sadness what unfolded that day and wanted to help. The team worked quickly to design patriotic T-shirts that encouraged and reassured the wearer, and by Christmas that year we had raised $15,000 from sales of these shirts; funds were sent to the Salvation Army and the American Red Cross disaster relief funds. This opportunity opened Founder & CEO, Vic Kennett’s eyes to the potential Kerusso has, to make a difference in a tangible way, on an even larger scale.
