THE STORY:

I started my screen printing company, Koala-Tee's Inc. as young WOMAN in 1983. Breaking in to the business world as well as obtaining financial help was challenging in the 1980's as a female -but I ended up getting a loan from my grandfather to fund my first equipment for $2,200. My company has grown to be highly successful in Sandy, Utah. My husband (Andrew) and I, with our employees are making a nice living providing custom printed and embroidered apparel for corporations, schools etc.

I 'm a WOMAN on a MISSION to help my fellow printers & entrepuneurs in NAKURU, Kenya and Ghana with equipment, mentoring and support as OUR GIVE BACK. I am excited to bring industry and commerce to these cities by providing screen printing and vinyl cut equipment, supplies & blank apparel. All these things are so abundant and easy to get here in USA. These things are out of reach to most of the Africans.

The business in NAKURU will be providing printed & branded tee shirts, totes and other items for a non profit called Global LifeVision (501 c3), which will be used by several volunteers and coaches in Kenya, Uganda & Ghana. We have Ben as the owner who is also a top knotch coach on the Global LifeVision team.

The second business we are providing for is established and award winning named: Robby Kloding. Robert, who is the owner, started his company in 2009. We are printing the design for our fund raising tee shirt-called "Rainbow Thumbprint" in which he was awarded "Most Creative Use of Screen Printed Logo/Mascot" in the February 2012 issue of Impressions Magazine.

Both of these shops are in need of new squeegys, inks, aluminum screens, vinyl cutter, art computer and printers etc.

Myself and a small team including my son, Austin who is 13, Elliott also 13 & Ann Webb -the president & Founder of Global LifeVision. We are leaving this August 20th, 2016 to help set the shop up in Nakuru and sending Robert supplies with all of your GENEROUSLY thoughtful donations.

I am BLESSED to have the opportunity to help these two fine artistic, creative, hard working and highly motivated guys (Ben and Robert).

Please PLEASE help us by donating money, any equipment or supplies would be AWESOME. I would love to send you a TEE SHIRT with a suggested donation of $25 or more.

~ Love and Hugs~,
