How are you? We hope your week is going well! We're loving the weather on the East Coast right now and we're thankful that we don't have to deal with a Hurricane this coming weekend.
We've got exciting news and we want you to be the first to know about it. We just got word about an article about KNO on Huffington Post. We're really excited about it because we get the chance to share the KNO story with so many people.
All of you have been great supporters of the KNO movement. Would you please read the article and share it on Facebook and Twitter?
Thanks for all of your support. Together, we are ending homelessness across the country.

Years ago, I resided in Philadelphia while I attended Temple University for my undergraduate degree in Studio Art. I registered for a Black and White Photography class, which I was both excited and nervous about taking. While I loved photography, I never had to take photos that I was actually supposed to develop myself (this was back when digital photography was starting to gain popularity, and those who had not caught on to the new trend had to take their film to a store to be developed).
I challenged myself to photograph subjects who were completely different from the beautiful flowers and perfectly made-up people that my classmates gravitated toward. Instead, I chose to capture the ‘grittier’ side of Philadelphia. I found beauty in what most would consider depressing. I took photos of old, dilapidated buildings, graffiti, and broken windows. These things have been through a lot. If they had a voice, oh the stories I bet they would tell!
One day after taking some photos, I was walking down Market Street (a fairly busy Philadelphia street). In the distance I saw a man slouched in a wheelchair. As I walked closer, I noticed he was a man who was experiencing homelessness and he had both of his legs amputated. He politely requested spare change or a meal from passers-by who, as if he were invisible, continued on their way without taking notice of him. The irony is that the monthly salary of the men and women in sharp business attire who walked by undisturbed by the helpless man in the wheelchair perhaps was more than the man had ever seen in his lifetime, or at least since he had been in his harsh state. I decided to approach him. Although my instinct would be to continue on my way, there was something about this man that piqued my curiosity. What was his name? What was his story?
I soon learned that John was a Vietnam veteran. The mental and physical trauma he endured during the war rendered him unable to work when he returned home. For decades, he has been in and out of homeless shelters and is now living off of little to no support from the government. I instantly began feeling anger and frustration with his condition. Here was man who willingly risked his life for his country, and in return, we failed him. I wanted to record my time with John, and asked if I could take his photo. He jokingly said, “Sure, if you give me a dollar!”
I rummaged through my bag. I gave him all the money I had, which ended up being $22. He looked at me with tears in his eyes and said he couldn’t accept this much. I told him he could. He deserved it for all that he’s done.
I captured a few photos of him, headed back to my makeshift darkroom (the bathroom in my apartment) and I developed my film. I headed to my school, and for the next three hours I worked on printing my photos, giving this task my utmost care, in respect of John the person, and John the veteran. In the end, I think I was successful.
John, Philadelphia, PA 2001
I looked for John to give him my extra print but unfortunately I could not find him. I wanted to show him (and the multitude of homeless war veterans) that although he is often ignored and forsaken, there was someone out there who was grateful for all that he had done.

Hope you’re doing well! This summer, you might have seen our Facebook updates about staying cool in a KNO tee and we were serious! As the heat kicks up, cotton can be a life-saver. Especially with this record high heat on the East Coast.
On top of keeping you cool, KNO is using cotton to help the people and places that make our clothing.
Often, people who pick cotton are not provided with living wages or humane working conditions. American and European history both remember the tragedies of cotton culture: slavery, child labor, even suicides. It’s not a pretty picture. Pesticides can poison people. Not to mention that some fabric dyes and wasteful manufacturing severely harm the environment.
We’re not standing for it.
Instead, we’re using fairly traded and organic cotton which means our clothing is made with the people who made it in mind. We support wages that allow people to eat food and educate their children, we support eco-friendly growing methods, and we support the community involved in making sure these processes only get better. Not that fair trade and organic trends are a catch-all for social problems. But even as we move beyond the threads on your back, we’re still committed to making those threads as good as possible.
Stay cool, friends. And let’s remember the homeless who have no place to rest from the summer heat.
Until next time,Jessica

It’s strange that kinship in species is not enough to make relationships-- that our clothing, smell, location, and career have so much power over our interactions. A friend, who is currently wandering through the U.S. with a backpack and a bike, reminded me of this when we rode on the D.C. Metro and people were glaring at him for his appearance. So what? I thought. You have no idea what his story is.
At the same time, I was reminded of how often I don’t care to know, either. So, meeting David Denny the next day was a shock to my system. I met him first by not meeting him at all. I read his poem in a newspaper:
I cannot capture on paper the sense of the macabre, the gray
Or the wan expressions of a gloomy day.
My pen cannot describe in words the pain
A ravaged soul pours out like rain.
And I cannot draw a picture of the darkness inside
That soul where insecurity, fear and doubt hide.
I cannot capture on paper the fate
Of lost souls that harbor hate,
Or the evil thoughts buried below
Where the seeds of evil start to grow
However, let me express the wonders of love
That comes [sic] from an infinite Heaven and the stars above.
I cannot capture the subtle emotion that comes into a mother’s eyes
And the warm embrace that soothes when her baby cries.
I would like to express that there are wonders in love
And the saving grace from God above.
- David Denny, Street Sense, Volume 19: Issue 8. Reprinted with permission
I read “Captive Love” on Thursday morning-- after the Tuesday Happy Hour and Wednesday’s conference. I remember thinking I had found a kindred soul in a writer struggling to find the right words. But I left it at that. In fact, the same morning, I had purchased a collection of W.H. Auden poetry and I left my sense of relationship as a distant affection. I don’t expect the gap between the poet and the reader to be bridged. (For one, Auden is dead, so I’m not exactly eager to meet him.)
Joking aside, I soon met a friend for lunch. While we walked, I noticed a man wearing a lime-green vest. It had the words “Street Sense” on the front. So, I stopped for a practical reason. I had bought an issue of this D.C. street paper on Wednesday and was curious if this was a daily publication.
The man went ahead and explained that it was a bi-weekly paper. He called himself a homeless advocate and he had a great, big smile and a musical voice. I remember laughing a lot. Then, the man flipped to the last few pages of the paper, pointed to a poem, and introduced himself.
This was David Denny in the flesh. I looked up at him and just laughed some more. He was clean-cut, dressed in a pair of sturdy jeans. After we talked a little, I gave him my KNO button and we parted. It was a short meeting during which the sky did not turn red and the media did not race to cover a story on our ground-breaking compassion. Simply, David and I were on the corner of 18th and I NW Streets, talking and laughing and saying goodbye.
I guess the shock was just how easy it was to meet my “kin”. Maybe the stars aligned the night before so David and I could meet. Yet, I’ll bet this isn’t about waiting for planets to shift. Maybe our gaps-- cultural, systematic, personal-- are bridged for us already by the fact that people are just people! We talk. We say goodbye. It’s not Herculean. Just human.
*You can usually find David Denny selling Street Sense on 13th and Penn (CVS) during the week and 7th and Penn on the weekends. If you see him, say Hi!

Before I share about David, I want to share something I read recently from the author Henri Nouwen*:
To become neighbors is to bridge the gap between people. As long as there is a distance between us and we cannot look into one another’s eyes, all sorts of false ideas and images arise. We give them names, make jokes about them, cover them with our prejudices, and avoid direct contact. We think of them as enemies. We forget that they love as we love, care for their children as we care for ours, become sick and die as we do. We forget that they are our brothers and sisters and treat them as objects that can be destroyed at will.
Only when we have the courage to cross the road and look in one another’s eyes can we see there that we are children of the same God and members of the same human family.
Bread for the Journey, “Bridging the Gap Between People”
Regardless of religious affiliation (or lack thereof), this was a good reminder of the things I so easily forget. “[T]hey love as we love…become sick and die as we do.”
*Nouwen, a prolific author and Catholic priest, is probably most remembered as the pastor of L’Arche Daybreak in Canada, a community where people with disabilities and their assistants live together as family. He wrote an amazing account of his time there in the book Adam after the death of his disabled friend with whom he lived.

Life sure sped up since last I wrote here!
I landed in Union Station last Tuesday, just in time to help Anthony prepare for the KNO Happy Hour at Cities. We crossed streets that afternoon like true New Yorkers, even in 103-degree weather. This may have been my favorite part of the week. While walking around a melting Capitol, shopping for supplies, Anthony told me the stories behind KNO Clothing. He talked about college, his friendship with Stephen, and how the partnerships with 100,000 Homes and Bethesda Mission came to be.
Those stories showed me the living and breathing core of the KNO Clothing movement. There was a sense of inevitability-- of a friendship grounded in compassion. Somewhere behind my sweat-fogged sunglasses, DC’s humidity became irrelevant.
But before I get all Twilight Zone-y-- because it was actually really hot outside-- let me say that the Happy Hour was great fun. We had a reserved space to host our guests and put out some new KNO merchandise!
Thank you to all who came and to Cities Restaurant and Lounge!
Friends from the Department of Defense and Grameen Foundation came. We also got to spend the night at Cities with some of the awesome people of the 100,000 Homes Campaign. Jessica Venegas, Kat Johnson, Becky Kanis, and Jake Maguire are all integral members of 100K and their laughter and their commitment to ending homelessness livened the night. Becky-- the program director-- even showed me her unfinished tattoo!
Crazy, right? I love it! The surprising typo celebrates reaching 100K’s first-year goal to house 10,000 people by July 2011. Let’s help Becky finish her tattoo by July 2013!
Our DC events did not stop with new ink and new buttons, however. (Oh, shameless plug, where did you come from?!)
On Wednesday, Anthony spoke at a pre-conference session for the National Alliance to End Homelessness Conference. I came away smiling for two reasons:
1. I realized I am a lazy college student.
Confused? I have a secret which may not be so secret. College students can work hard when we feel like it. But that conference was mind-boggling proof that college kids have it easy. I was surrounded by people who labor tirelessly, every day, and all towards an honorable end. Like Anthony, I felt like I was sitting in a room full of heroes. Scholarly procrastination tucked its tail and ran away.
2. I loved the clapping and laughter.
I assumed homelessness could only be a depressing subject. Thinking about loneliness, danger, and becoming a social pariah should probably make me feel this way. Yet, there was a kind of wise optimism-- a hope equipped with strategy-- at NAEH 2011. I am so glad to have witnessed the humor and happiness of those attending.
The funny thing is that just the night before I had been worried about what I could possibly to do help this mission to end homelessness. Even if I worked hard, what could emails and blogging ultimately do? Jessica Venegas from 100,000 Homes looked me straight in the eyes when I shared this and she said, “Policy jargon is just that.” She continued by telling me to confidently write the stories of people because therein lay undeniable truth. Real people and real stories could not be argued with. Homelessness and its end could have voices. So, here I am, starting with my own time in DC with KNO.
I’ll introduce David next. I met him on the corner of 18th and I Street. I had just read the newspaper…
Jul 12, 2011
One year ago, the 100,000 Homes Campaign pledged to find homes for 100,000 people in the U.S. The first step was to find housing for 10,000 people by July 13, 2011. So, the past 12 months have been a real journey. At times, it felt we might not get there. We had a dream, not knowing how it would come to reality.
But, today, KNO Clothing is glad to announce that this dream is becoming real. Today, our friends at 100,000 Homes celebrated 10,244 homes found for some of the nation's most vulnerable.
We want to thank all of you for your support! Your purchases are making a difference in the lives of people all across the country. Click here for a quick message from KNO co-founder, Anthony Thomas.

Hello KNO Friends!
My name’s Jessica. I am so happy to announce the launch of KNO Clothing’s summer intern team!
Our first team meeting was held over the weekend. And maybe not in the way most companies do it. KNO has a pretty unique thing going on. We all telecommute.
It looks something like this:
I’d like to thank technology and one pretty amazing movement for being able to gather people around the country to work together. Minus the fake computer and five o’clock shadow, that’s me!
Okay, so what, I used a real computer. I shaved. More realistically, I did my hair and put some makeup on. But that’s beside the point. Did I mention that “one pretty amazing movement… able to gather people”? Yeah. That’s it.
Meeting the small, but whole team at KNO and talking about ending homelessness was way cooler than sitting on a beach pretending to be in a cubicle (Who does that?).
Some might call it idealistic. Others might even call it unhelpful-- to provide people with clothes and shelter-- believing in the bootstrap method, instead. The stereotypes, misunderstandings, and injustices are real.
But this weekend, I saw that compassion and innovative ways of living out compassion are real, too. So, get excited, Friends! Your summer intern team is about to do some good work.

A lot of us whole-heartedly believe in the so-called “American Dream”--that if you try hard enough and believe in yourself, you can achieve greatness. We even have evidence to back up this opinion with examples of rags-to-riches tales of Oprah Winfrey or J.K. Rowling. With this engrained opinion, we see homelessness as a result of laziness or a lack of drive to secure employment. Marquis Barnett breaks all of these stereotypes.
Marquis Barnett has a promising basketball career ahead of him, and he will be playing at Quinnipiac this fall. However, Marquis is not the average talented recruit. He is currently experiencing homelessness. His story will indeed be one of those rags-to-riches tales I was telling you about, but he is in "rags" not because of his poor choices or his mother’s laziness, but because of circumstances outside of their control.
Marquis lived with his mother, Francine, and her boyfriend. One morning in October 2008, Barnett overheard his mother and her boyfriend arguing. He became concerned when he no longer heard his mother yelling and ran in to see if she was okay. Barnett said, “I had this terrible feeling that something was very wrong, so I rushed into the room and saw my mom being strangled by her boyfriend. I pulled him off and we started fighting.” Fearing for their safety and not having the resources to afford their own apartment, Marquis and his mother moved into a homeless shelter. Unfortunately, Francine’s boyfriend tracked them down. Again, they had to escape to another shelter.
Marquis has been moving from shelter to shelter, forced to commute long distances just to attend school. For several years, he has lived in fear for his mother's life. However, despite the obstacles that Marquis has faced, he managed to maintain his dream of going to college to pursue a basketball career.
Not all homeless people we see on the streets or who live in a shelter are there for stereotypical reasons. Many have endured circumstances outside of their control, such as a house fire, an abusive relationship or a job loss. Human beings do not choose to be put in these situations, but as the saying goes, "life happens." Marquis and his mother were fortunate to have kind and generous people in their lives. Marquis’ coaches and teachers took notice of his situation and offered clothing and hot meals. Without their help, Marquis would not be where he is now. In the small ways that Marquis' coaches and teachers helped, his life was deeply impacted.
Now it is our turn. You can also make a difference in someone's life. With every purchase from KNO Clothing, an article of clothing is donated to a person in need just like Marquis Barnett. KNO goes even further by investing in organizations like the 100,000 Homes Campaign, who work tirelessly to bring an end to homelessness.
Changing the world can be overwhelming, but we can do it--one article of clothing at a time.

What is personal style? What does it mean when someone tells you, “That outfit is so ‘you’”? What makes your style uniquely yours, and what is your style saying to the world? These are questions that came to my mind while I was browsing through photos of street fashion for a KNO project, and I would like to use this platform to share my thoughts.
Sure, our styles are influenced by what the fashion gurus, the runways and magazines dictate, by what the weather dictates, and by what is “in” at the moment, but these common principles apply to everyone. How then do you end up “owning” your individual style? It’s the unique color combination that only you would put together. It’s the romper style that is so typical of you. It’s the bold contrast you use to make a statement.
Your personal style reflects your mood and your attitude. When you’re in a good mood, you want to show it off through the colors, prints and forms you use. Sometimes you feel like going pretty in pink, and sometimes punk in black. But yet, through all your fleeting moods, there is a thread of ‘you’ that remains consistent in your style. What is incredible about your personal style is that it’s you, in fabric.
Your personal style reflects aspects of your personality. How bold are you willing to go? What do you choose to reveal to the world and what do you choose to keep to yourself? Sometimes, we find ourselves copying other people’s outfits, and at other times, we don’t feel the need. Our fashion reflects our passion and creativity.
Our fashion talks to the world, and says - This is how I feel. This is me, for today. Our fashion talks to the world, and is full of contradictions. Mix a red lipstick with an otherwise conservative outfit and you become a contradiction. Mix a classic flowery pleated dress with metal-studded leather stilettos and you become a contradiction. Wear fishnet stockings. It’s a streak you’re willing to show the world you have. Play with lengths, with shows of skin. All this comes so naturally to us when we dress, but at the same time we are consciously or sub-consciously sending out messages to the world.
Our fashion talks to the world. Talk back to it. Engage in it. Converse with it. And you will begin to hear the voice behind the fabric.

Greetings and salutations! My name is Kisha Munson, and I am the Design and Creative Associate for KNO Clothing. I am currently a Master of Fine Arts student, majoring in Graphic Design at The New York Institute of Technology in New York City. I wanted to find an internship that would not only give me experience in Graphic Design, but also give me the opportunity to make a difference in this world. When I first heard about KNO, I went on their website and was immediately impressed that they were a fashion company whose primary goal was to help end homelessness. When I was accepted into the internship, I thought it was kind of funny because I never thought I would work for a fashion company (I’m not what you would call fashionable). However, I respected and believed in their mission, and wanted to be a part of that.
My interest in the issue of homelessness began in 1995, when I was 18 years old. A friend of mine needed help feeding the local homeless citizens in my town. Like many people, I never really had one-on-one contact with homeless people. I didn’t know what to expect when I walked into that church. My shift finally started, and it was eye opening. There were homeless people from every ethnicity, different ages, and different educational backgrounds. Some had mental disabilities. It was at that moment when I realized that homelessness does NOT discriminate; it can affect anyone. Homeless people are not “lazy bums looking for a handout”, which the public is often led to believe. When I saw these people, I saw myself. I could easily be in their situation. Anyone could.
I am proud to have the opportunity to work with KNO; their founders, Anthony and Stephen are amazing and very receptive to new ideas. My fellow teammates are great, and work extremely hard to get KNO out to the public. We all come from different locations and backgrounds, but we have one common ground: to help end homelessness.

In this day and age, it is so easy to focus on the ‘big and splashy’ that we easily overlook the small things that happen around us. We seem to miss the reality that even something as simple as our daily routine—reading the morning paper, sipping a cup of Starbucks coffee or tea, commuting to and from work or school—this is all made possible through the “small” actions of others.
At KNO, we’ve learned to focus on and celebrate small actions. We recognize the contributions you make to helping us grow expand and increase our impact. It may not take much of your time or energy, but we’ve been so grateful for the actions you’ve made to spread the word about us. Together, we are using fashion to bring an end to homelessness. I wanted to briefly share two quick stories and thank some of our newest supporters:
Daniel Lakstins (@DanielLakstins) is someone I met through email a few weeks ago. He invited KNO to speak on his weekly blog radio show. After only a 15 minute interview, Daniel was captivated by the mission of KNO. He purchased a t-shirt and volunteered to promote KNO at the SXSW conference he would be attending the following week. Grateful for his enthusiasm, we sent Daniel some promo materials. A week later, he surprised us with the following video:
We also want to recognize a group of 75 college students who gave up food for 30 hours to get a small glimpse into what it feels like to go hungry. During their fast, they had an opportunity to learn about KNO and a few other companies that are making a difference in bettering people’s lives. Each of the students purchased clothing from our website with an aim to both provide an article of clothing to someone experiencing homelessness as well as fund local organizations that work to end homelessness. Fasting for 30 hours is no “small” feat, and by doing so, they were able to empathize with people who have no choice but to go hungry, and at the same time impact the lives of 75 people on the streets.
The stories are glimpses of the many “small” actions that are taken by KNO supporters on a daily basis. With each action, we all work toward building up a movement that will lead to the end of homelessness in this country. We hope you too will be inspired to take a small step to spread the word about KNO and actively make a difference in someone else’s life.

After a long week in the classroom, working on KNO projects, and running around on the tennis court in preparation for U-Penn’s match against our rivals at Princeton, I have finally found the time to sit, relax and update you all on my KNO adventures of the week.
I was excited to reach out to my school newspaper to raise their awareness about the innovative way in which KNO Clothing is using fashion as a means to address and eradicate the problem of homelessness in the US. I am fortunate to have a friendwho writes for the school paper and is willing to talk to the editor about the possibility of featuring KNO. I also made efforts to reach out to various local, regional and national publications including the Philadelphia Daily News, to explore the possibility of them featuring articles about KNO in their upcoming online and print publications. To further support KNO in our efforts to utilize the most socially responsible and environmentally friendly means of production of our products, I took time to research fair trade and organic companies to potentially partner with for various new products.
As I look back on my past week, I remember how fast-paced and busy it was; nevertheless, it was both meaningful and successful. The way I see it, every small step that I take to help expand the national profile of KNO Clothing means that more people are becoming aware of the creative concept; more people have an opportunity to get involved in ending homelessness by purchasing our products; and finally, more people on the streets are getting out of their lives of homelessness. That’s a lot to be excited about!
As we get closer to the weekend, there are a couple of things I want to share with you. First, KNO’s spring and summer clothing line will be released in a few short weeks, so keep checking back on the website for some awesome new styles and products. Second, many of you already know, but KNO Clothing has advanced to the semi-finals of the Last Plan Standing marketing plan competition, so please be ready to support KNO again in April when we begin the final round of voting. Your support is so much appreciated!

A big thanks to all who watched and liked our video entry for the Last Plan Standing competition.
We've made it to the semi- finals!!! Here's a message from KNO co-founder, Stephen Caldwell:
Thanks again. Together, we can help end homelessness!

My name is Jason Lin. While I am originally from Irvine, California, I am currently studying marketing and operations management at the University of Pennsylvania. I am interning as the general associate for KNO Clothing, which means I get to do a bit of everything for this unique and innovative start-up company. I help to increase KNO's brand awareness on the regional and national level, and I also help to envision new ideas to expand the reach of KNO Clothing.
I chose to join KNO because of my dual interest in the fashion industry and desire to curb homelessness throughout the United States. My interest in fashion had its humble beginnings in my high school years when my tennis coach asked me to pick out our team uniforms. Ever since, I have taken every opportunity to increase my experience in the fashion industry.
My interest in ending homelessness actually developed before high school when I was a Boy Scout. Every year, our troop would go around nearby neighborhoods to collect food donations for local homeless shelters. Today, I am grateful for the distinctive opportunity to apply both of these passions in my internship at KNO Clothing. What I am most excited about is the fact that as I intern at KNO, my efforts in ending homelessness are really making a difference in people’s lives not only here in Pennsylvania, but also in California and all across our nation.
