Auma Sunday

While Aumu Sunday was once an orphan, forced to drop out of school for lack of finances, she is now thriving as a beneficiary for KKU. She is now able to meet her own basic needs with the money that she earns and is also supporting her sister’s daughter through school.

“I look forward to no more worries about meeting my needs. My future dream is to buy a plot of land so that I can farm on it because I love to dig and work the land.”

“Northern Uganda is blessed with good weather, fertile land with a good landscape and a flat land.”

“My message to KKU is thank you for changing my life and please continue to help disadvantaged peoples who have been affected by war.”

    This past weekend I went to a Christian music festival called Lifest that takes place in Oshkosh Wisconsin. Last year I was at the Krochet Kids booth and saw the beautiful things that everyone had made and I thought to myself “What a wonderful thing!”. I took home a flyer, hung it on my mirror and everyday for the past year I looked at it. This year I went back to Lifest and the first thing I sought out was the booth again. I looked at the many beautiful hats and head bands, but one stood out to me; a dark teal beanie with a cute little twist on the side. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to buy it. It is truly beautiful and I love it so very much! I can’t thank you enough for this beautiful gift and I promise every time that I wear it I will be thinking of you and your empowering story. It’s women like you that make this world a beautiful place. Please stay strong and I only hope that your niece grows to be as stunning on the inside and out as you.

    I want to thank you so very much for my beanie. I have a deep abiding passion for the well being of others, so learning about this organization has made me so happy. My boyfriend got me the beanie for Christmas and I can’t say how precious it is to me because of who crafted it. You have a home in my heart and your beanie has a home on my head. Thank you very much! You’re a special person.

  4. Susan Hornbrook

    Hello Sunday! :) I received the hat you made for a Christmas gift! It’s so beautiful! I have always looked terrible in hats, and this is the first one I feel like looks nice on me. :))) I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and also are feeling God’s peace surrounding you. I wish I knew how to make cool things like these hats! I just know how to fix people’s hair, so perhaps we are doing similar work, both of us making people’s heads look nicer! :) I am happy to know that this lovely hat was made by your skilled hands and that it may help you to get ahead and achieve your dreams! I loved what someone else wrote you, that we’re all in this together.. SO TRUE. God bless you and I wish you peace, health and happiness. In friendship..~Susan

    Hi Auma,

    I purchased your beautiful crochet hat at a christian music festival yesterday. I was so impressed with your skills and am glad to be able to support you. The hat is very beautiful. I’m very happy to see this type of organization and am glad that you are part of the Krochet Kids. It is wonderful to hear how being a part of this organization has impacted your life. I will be praying that you can accomplish your goal of purchasing land to farm. Please do make some more beautiful hats. I love the Margot style hat that I purchased in the vibrant Fushia color.

  9. Rachel Harner

    Dear Sunday,
    Thank you so much for the hat you crocheted. It is very beautiful, just like the strong and beautiful woman you are. I am leaving for Europe for the first time this week and I needed a hat to keep me warm. Who knew I wasn’t just buying a hat, but hope and a life for a person so far away? I had never heard of Krochet Kids before I purchased your hat, but now I am excited to share your story and the mission of Krochet Kids to anyone who compliments your beautiful work. I am staring college this fall and it is inspiring organizations such as Krochet Kids that fill me with so much passion to create my own change in the world. Thank you so much, Auma Sunday. I will wear your hat with all the pride and strength of its maker.

    Much love,

  38. Katelyn Howay

    Auma Sunday,

    I had wanted to buy a hat but earlier this fall the website was selling out of them so fast it was difficult to get one. I noticed one of my local department stores was listed as having them in stock, so I went it specifically to get one – and they had a few in stock! I picked out a beautiful blue one and I love it so much! You created a wonderful hat and I am so happy to be able to wear it! I have been telling everyone how special this organization is and will hopefully be buying some more hats for Christmas presents for my friends – maybe they will help you get your farm! I wish you a wonderful season.

    Thank you!

    Thank you so much for the black crochet beanie. It came just in time for the winter and I’m going to be wearing it with pride as a fashion statement. After seeing the commercial and what they are doing to help the women in Africa. I wanted to help out some how. I will be telling my friends and family about the beanie you made. So we can get more people involve in changing someone’s life. Thank you once again.

    I just got my hat today and I love it! I recently moved from a tropical place (hawaii) to somewhere colder and I definitely will be using the hat a whole lot! Every time I wear this hat it will remind me of how large our world is and that in the end we all are related as a race and we should all celebrate our triumphs together! I truly appreciate this beautiful piece of clothing that was the fruit of your labor & I hope we can celebrate more triumphs together soon!

    Hello Beautiful Auma Sunday!
    It’s wonderful to see the lovely face to the name in my hat! You are such a beautiful woman ~ and so generous too, to help your niece with school. I adore my hat – especially because I know it was made by another woman with so much care & love. I consider this my “healing hat” because it’s so special when I wear it. We women are so powerful together – and I’m so happy that this hat has connected us! I’m Buddhist & will keep you in my meditation & prayer practice that you get the perfect land for you & your niece can have any education she wants. I’m so inspired by you & I’m spreading the word about you & your hats among my Buddhist community, family & friends! Many blessings my friend Auma!
    I bow to you in gratitude,

  50. Tiffany DuBeau

Keep up the excellent work. Your strength, you’re courage and your honest smile inspires me.

    Much love from Canada,

    Auma Sunday,
    Thank you so much for my new favorite hat. I love knowing who made it and how much love and care went into its creation. Knowing you held in your hands the same hat I’m holding in mine is so powerful, and just demonstrates how connected the world really is. One of my favorite quotes, from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., refers to everyone being “tied in a single garment of destiny,” and I have never believed that to be more true than when I received my new hat. Thank you, and I hope you reach all your dreams.

  61. Clare Bennett

    I love my hat Auma Sunday! Thank you so much, it really is a beautiful hat made by a beautiful person! I heard about Krochet Kids on tv, and now I plan to tell everyone I know about it. Your story is so inspiring and I know with hard work you will reach your dreams! You are in my prayers.

  62. Teressa

    I just got my Zooey in Caribbean Blue. Excelent work. I hope all of your dreams come true.

  63. Courtney Hetland

    Auma Sunday,
    Thank you so much for crocheting my absolute favorite hat. I stumbled upon Krochet Kids products in the midst of Christmas shopping and ended up buying a few for my friends and family. I show everyone the tag inside my hat and explain to them that you are the very person that created it. I think it is amazing that you are working so hard to give yourself and your family such a bright future. You and your family are in my prayers.
    Thanks again,

  64. Thereasa Eggerly
