Our friend Denny Huebner has started a new company called Dorcas Wear. What is Dorcas Wear?
From the website:
Our founder spent 3 years in Kenya, helping to establish schools and orphanages for the street children of Nakuru. While there, he met dozens of people named.... Dorcas? Curious, he did a little research. It turns out Dorcas lived in the first century AD in Joppa. Among her numerous charitable deeds was making clothes with her own hands for poor widows and children in her community. While she never aspired to leadership, she nevertheless became a symbol of benevolence, and throughout history has inspired women world wide to humanitarianism and philanthropy.
While we are a for-profit company, our charitable goal is to support the ongoing legacy of Dorcas. A percentage of every Dorcas Wear sale goes to supporting orphan children and young women in Africa, some of whom will help to design our logos in the future.
Why is this on our blog? Denny is donating a portion of proceeds to a few projects there in Nakuru, ours included. Last time he was here he brought along shirts for everyone, and they look great.

P.S. One of the Dorcas’ he met works with us.
