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 2022!

Here is the KasShop report for January.

I know it doesn't look like a lot, but the Customs Handling Fee item is continuing to be very popular! A total of $114.84 was raised.

Do you have an idea for a new Shop item? We would love to hear any and all suggestions you might have. You can message me directly or comment in the Let's Talk Shop discussion.

Thank you Andrea with a vested interest in this information I applaud your posting of it X

Here are the KasShop reports for February and March.

February saw $294.74 in donations and we raised $683.52 in March!

Here is the KasShop report for April, May and June.

Since the second quarter was slow, I've combined the numbers into one chart. The total raised for these three months was $348.31.

Thank you, Andrea, for putting this together for us :))

I'm sure Aunt Nellie is thrilled that our little KAS Shop is still doing business ... even during a seemingly slow time :))  It's nice to see that contributors are keeping on top of the customs fees ... plus spending a little extra toward keeping KAS afloat.  Every penny spent in The KAS Shop is a direct donation to Knit a Square.  So thank you to all the shoppers ... xo

Gosh I'm sorry it has been a while since I stopped by.... I sometimes wonder where time goes, he-he.   I simply had to pop onto the forum today though, and say I'm ssso delighted with the shop takings lately.   It certainly is important and means regular help and care may be forwarded onto these needy children.    Thank you!

Please keep on stopping by the shop to cover your handling fees, and perhaps drop an odd item or 2 into your baskets.  

Lots of love and stay safe everyone,  Auntie Nellie xx xx

The Donate button provides 2 options:

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.
