LET'S TALK SHOP 2021
The KAS Shop is an integral part of keeping KAS alive to provide help for the children in South Africa. The funds raised through purchases from the KAS Shop are greatly needed to help cover expenses such as The Barn rent, the postal collection charges, fuel for the KAS van and the stipend for the Gogo's for each blanket sewn up.
A massive outgoing from the KAS funds is the mandatory customs and handling fee of $3.75US per parcel. This is a charge the South African Customs and Excise enforce no matter what size of parcel is collected. Therefore it is an ongoing regular outlay, and it is vital this proportion of expense is supported to keep our crafting flowing to where it is needed most.
Donations are most welcome whether they are as you can afford them, or by setting up a monthly donation. Both are easily arranged by pressing the Donate button to the right of the Main Page in the Forum, or by making a purchase from our well stocked KAS Shop full of fundraising departments.
Remember 100% of every KAS Shop purchase goes directly to KAS......and every penny counts!! Thank you X
Well Hello there crafters! Auntie Nellie here again.......
THANK YOU ALL! I was really delighted to read the KAS Finances recently and see for myself the super amount of donations and purchases that have passed through the KAS Shop checkout.
Please continue to support our amazing system by donating where you can, or passing through the KAS shop and picking up an item or two, and by covering the Customs Handling Fee when you mail your parcels. We need to keep the cogs turning.............Have you noticed the fundraising idea which has been started recently, and will run until the New Year.....? This idea has come about by a member trying to make one of each of the 35 different squares from the new FREE booklet available in our store. It appears so far the knitting effort is going well - why not take a look and offer a $ in support of this challenge if you haven't already done so..... Take care ladies and stay safe as you shop X
HO-HO-HO !!! Despite the fact our takings are doing pretty well at the moment, there is still the need to keep our needy children in the front of your minds this season.
Today I wanted to stop by and ask you if you have thought of buying some of the cards from our fantastic selection in the KAS Shop............ There are beautiful flowers, pictures of the children in knitted goods and an array of African animals to choose from. Why not pop in and take a look to help keep our finances afloat...........?? Please also keep our cause in mind should you decide to gift to charity instead of sending Christmas cards this year - the cost of postage can be so high and it is timely too.
It is worth saying too that covering the cost of the postage handling fee is imperitive too - we need to keep the flow of our parcels moving to where they are needed most. Remember passing through our store can help keep our children feeling loved and warm and those spare pennies do add up!
