You see all profit are proportionately divided by tithing, savings and giving back. Yap! giving back to causes that are important to Kai, like children causes.
Kai's Kookies have been to trade shows, featured on Southern Dallas County Business and Living Magazine, just check out her Instagram feed. Curious? grab a cup of milk, you're going to need it.
