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!

Welcome to the KAS Finances discussion for 2021!

Here is the KasShop report for January.

This year started off with a BANG! and $766.53 raised (after PayPal fees).

2021 has so much potential – together we CAN make a difference.

As a reminder, please note that the Shop charts include the number of times an order was purchased. For example, in the past if someone made a $50 purchase of Pay the Customs Handling Fee, it would be counted as 1 x Pay the Customs Handling Fee. Now it will be counted as 10 x Pay the Customs Handling Fee ($5 x 10).

Great start to a new year.

Andrea, thank you for this breakdown.  WOW!  That's an impressive total for our 'little' KAS Shop :) ... xo

Thank you so much Andrea for this update. Glad to see this great start of the year!

Here is the KasShop report for February.

February is a short month and so were our sales, totaling $112.92.

Watch for a brand new FREE download coming this month to the Shop!

Thanks for this update, Andrea.  FREE shop item coming?  How intriguing!!!!  xo

Here is the KasShop report for March.

What a phenomenal month! March numbers more than made up for February's shortfall. We raised a total of $1,346.25! A deeply heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who donated by purchasing items in the KasShop.

A new item is still in the works and will be in the shop soon! Hint: How many squares does it take to make a blanket?

Thank you for this fabulous update, Andrea!  What a grand total for March. And may I join  you in  thanking everyone who shopped at our very own KAS Shop.  Aunt Nellie will be so pleased :))

BTW ... 35 squares make a blanket! ... xo

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.
