At the end of July Estelle put out this post to Karen Gordon...

Karen I remember opening a box of approximately 50 pairs of hand warmers from you.  If you have any more small balls of yarn we’d love some hand warmers from our star knitter….we have suddenly run out of them.

 

Several of us jumped on board and said we would like to help out, too.

Please join us with the challenge to

MAKE 500 HAND-WARMERS

FOR KAS

The Barn is currently out of hand-warmers and our volunteers are making distributions without them.

With the current issues with post arriving to The Barn we need to restock our supply of hand-warmers. 

Every year KAS tries to distribute 5,000 blankets to children. These need hand-warmers to go with them.    

Included in this introduction are some hand-warmers that have been posted by member since Estelle's request. 

We are adding them to our total. 

 

Let's color in our hands to reach 500 pairs of HAND-WARMERS made for the children.

TOTAL - 500+

Thank you everyone...WE DID IT!

Way to Go Team KAS!

You can post a photo or just let us know how

many you will be posting to South Africa.

Two more from me. Again colours don't look right, they are a much more vivid shade of purple with pretty rainbow stripes.

Total: 554

Another 21 pairs  (Can't get the total at the bottom of the photo!!)

TOTAL  NOW 575

Wow, that is a lot of hand warmers, well done. Love the colour and pattern combinations.

Diane, these are fabulous.  I am drawn to the middle row.

Thank you for thinking of the children.

I can add two more to the total.

577

I already mentioned thatI had 41 handwarmers to send. Since then the totalhas gone up. In addition to those41, I have another 59 to add. This will mean that there will be a parcel of 100 handwarmers that I'll be sending soon.

577 + 59 = 636

thats marvellous!

Fantastic!  What a great contribution 

7 pairs to add, sadly am out of action now until the end of December.  Had a bit of a fall last Thursday and have cracked my left wrist, in plaster for 40 days, such a shame as I could see the end of lots of my small bits of yarn!

TOTAL 643

Oh no, Diane - and at Christmas too. I hope you're well cared for and fussed over.

So sorry.  Must be so annoying!  Take care 

Another superb batch Diane.   I'm so sorry about your debilitating injury.  Also, I'm sure your 'little oddments' will wait patiently,  so div'nt fret about them.   Take care Xx

"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."
