Home Away from Home

Feel Good Friday

“Every time, as I am stepping off the plane in Uganda, I get this overwhelming feeling that my soul is at home.”-- Traveler Kim O'Grady

After several trips to Uganda with the Kassunga Mission Initiative, travelers Kim, Gloria, Martha and Mary have found their home away from home. The small town of Kassunga has welcomed them in with open arms…

and they spend their days working hand in hand with the community.

So they each brought back a fabric that hits close to home…featuring Uganda’s bright and colorful spirit… to share with you too.

Here’s to finding your home away from home and to feeling good—because after all, it's Friday!

-Jack & Alley, Co-Founders
