Please let us know if you made the HOPE and LOVE squares in this great blanket!

Thanks to all of our friends, Gogos and volunteers who stitch these amazing squares together.

Several of my squares in the gorgeous Hope and Love blanket - but sadly not the letters!

So happy that you got to see who received your work, Patricia.  You must be thrilled.

Thanks so much for this.   Distributions are always a favourite discussion category choice for me to devour.   The blankets are ALL superb + I spotted a variety of my double strand hats,  happy dance ♥️

They are certainly going to be needed warm hats.  Temps are heading down to 3C at night.  Brrrrrr.

Kathy and I love to see the children with their new blankets. Thanks for all the hard work you ladies do so that we feel so connected to our favorite charity organization.

Estelle and Sheldon have been very busy in Lion Park Informal Settlement.  Thank you for these incredible pictures.

Sheldon Bolle and I were impressed by these enterprising young men opening a car wash complete with a generator, water tanks and a delightful waiting area under the trees.

We also loved the ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Fish and Chips shop we passed on our way to our distribution in The Lion Park Informal Settlement.

Thank you KNIT A SQUARE, all our wonderful contributors and donors who make it possible to bring love and warmth to these precious children.

Pretty pink blanket for a dear little girl. Thank you Sheldon Bolle for matching the beanies, blankets and hand warmers so beautifully.

More squares from you Michelle Babcock.

Thank you very much firstly for taking these pictures, and then for posting them here.    I love all the bright colours and all the blankets are superbly made + finished off.    I'm delighted to see a lot of my hats, and also a few toys that were my Sons that are now in the hands of their precious new owners.    Very humbling indeed X

Like Karen, I've spotted two of my daughter's toys that I sent. I hope they bring some comfort.

Our parcels may have travelled together + been opened + sorted at similar times!!   Nice to know our items have ended up in the same place too.... ✔️

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
