Welcome to this months theme "Over the Rainbow"

 

 

 

Before we look forward to a new month, lets just remind ourselves of the KAS focus for the year....

To bring our themes together this year under 'one umbrella' our focus is.......

 

Colour Their World

Our aim is to brighten the lives of the children with our squares; colour, colour, colour.... in every monthly theme!

 

All members can contribute.....and have fun!

 

 

So how lucky am I ? To be hosting this months theme as this just falls so perfectly into our umbrella of  Colour Their World.

Whenever I see a Rainbow it always brings a smile to my face that magical burst of colour just appears to break out from the sky from nowhere

 I always end up humming a song, if it is not the simple Rainbow song that I was taught at school to remember the colours, I am in full swing of a rendition of Judy Garlands " Somewhere over the rainbow. "

Just a reminder of this wonderful song " Somewhere over the rainbow"

It is said that no two people see the same rainbow, that can also be said for KAS members ,as we each interpret the monthly themes in our own creative way .

Sir Isacc Newton Identified the seven colours that are present in a  rainbow - red - orange- yellow - green - blue indigo and violet

Legend has it there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, let us be that pot of gold for our beloved children of South Africa and show them how much we care.

The month of May will see South Africa coming to the end of their summer and winter starting to set in, so lets keep making our wonderful squares, hats, handwarmers and toys for these very special children.

So remember  Colour Their World and have fun fun fun !

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."
