The Knit-a-square program has inspired volunteers in more than 60 countries to knit and crochet more than 1.5 million blanket squares, hats, hand-warmers and toys. Your efforts are helping to keep the children warm but to keep this operation running every day, we need to extend your love and support.

Your donations are the backbone of financial support for the operations on the ground in South Africa, making it possible for them to continue.

Whether it's helping to pay the rent, a stipend for the gogos to sew blankets, fuel for the KasVan or to cover postal charges of $3.75 US per parcel, you make it possible to keep striving toward warming and comforting the children.

Our goal is to remove the monthly deficit that Ronda and her team have to deal with.

You can:

1. Make a donation whenever you are able.

2. Sign up for an ongoing monthly donation (subscription).

3. Shop at the KasShop!

Thank you for this update, Andrea.  It's good to see the blue above the red even if it is only slightly ... xo

Thanks so much Andrea for the financial update. I know this is a lot of work to make the overview. Much appreciated! 

You’re welcome! Thank you for the appreciation. :o)

Here is the last KasShop report for 2020.

We rounded out the year with a total of $483.33 for December, our third highest month! This has been a challenging year, to say the least, but the shop managed to raise a total of $4,335.12 (after PayPal fees).

A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the KasShop. We couldn't continue on without you.

In addition, here is an overview of items sold this year:

Here's to a better 2021, all the way around.

P.S. The financial numbers for December are delayed but I'll get them to you when I receive them.

Thank you for doing the financial details for the shop.  

Andrea, thank you so very much for pulling these numbers together for us!  It's nice to be able to see, at a glance, what types of things our members like to have in the KAS Shop. 

We can definitely tell that contributors are willing to go that extra little bit to help with the cost of receiving their parcels.  It's also nice to see that some are purchasing items for themselves and/or gifts.  After all, every $ spent is a $  directly to KAS.

Thank you to everyone who shops at the KAS Shop. We appreciate your support ... xo

Andrea, I echo Glo, it is nice to see what areas are getting the most purchase power.  KAS benefits with each and every purchase.

 Praying that things will be in full swing for 2021 and we are able to warm lots of children in South Africa.



The Donate button provides 2 options:

  1. One time donation
  2. Monthly subscription               [click the box]

Because of PayPal/banking fees, KAS asks that your donation be 5USD [or more].  Anything less, means your donation is eaten up with fees.  Thank you!

"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.
