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

Happy New Year Everyone!!    Firstly I want to say a huge Thank You for the amount raised through our KAS Shop last year - over $2,600 is amazing.

Secondly, it falls to me to remind and encourage you to continue with this fund raising by popping into our store.   Covering the stipend for the Gogos is an ongoing expense, and the fuel for the van is costly too.   Any funds raised go directly in one way or another right through to benefit the children who need to feel our love and consideration.

Please try to stop by and cover the postal collection charges too - the mail is regularly flowing through the postal system now.      Auntie Nellie xx xx   

Thanks Aunt Nellie. A timely reminder for the 'behind the scenes' expenses associated with our crafting. I LOVE the KASshop!!

Can anyone spare some time and cash to pop along to our KAS Shop.....?   How many of us have Thank You cards to write to friends and relatives after your enjoyable Christmas celebrations?   Whether it is to show your appreciation for great hospitality or for a gift, there is a superb array of Note Cards in store at very reasonable prices......They feature Nature, Flowers and Group pictures of some happy and grateful children adourned with our makes......

Why not take a look for yourself................?   Aunt Nellie xx xx



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!


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!

"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.
