ANNUAL P-t-R APPEAL - 365 days to cover!

and Pay the Rent at the same time, and,

just like the October theme - anything goes!

Is there anyone you would like to invite to have a cup of tea

or a mug coffee and a good chin-wag with?

A dear friend or family member perhaps?

Or would you prefer a quiet cup and slice of cake on your own, or perhaps you might enjoy a group meeting to celebrate a special occasion? Possibly a KAS Family PicKnit.......bring your hooks and needles too, plus choose the place or country where members can meet up !

Maybe you would like to invite Her Majesty and the Corgis to an afternoon garden tea party, or, reminisce with KAS friends about enjoyable times from the past, such as the 50's & 60's - a party with Elvis, Buddy Holly or Beatles fans. Adding a link to some music on YouTube would be fun!


Why not reveal what you enjoy about your Tea Party Guest, and, it would make it extra special if you would post your own photos of tea, coffee, cake or anything else that adds to a party! 


Last year members formed teams to Pay the Rent for day or half-day, and choosing a special day will be an option. We will be re-introducing the Calendar, therefore members can nominate any day of year and tell us why it has been chosen. 

 Even a single cup of coffee, tea or slice of cake will be added to the calendar, thus 10 cups of tea or coffee will cover a full day and a little bit more (an extra slice to support Ronda's team maybe!)

Celebrations could include the birth of a child, passing of exams, wedding anniversaries......anything goes!

Many families have an outstanding member who was loved by everyone and like to meet up to reminisce on the anniversary of their passing.

It might be nice to have a Memory Tea Gathering, you could share with members or make this a 'private function' with a special donation for a complete day. 



To pay for your coffee, tea, cake or party etc

Please would you record each purchase, who or what it is for in the discussion below, and, the date so it can be 'booked' into the calendar.

I love tea parties!! Great idea!

Diana, you really are THE most generous hearted woman....thank you for getting the Pay the Rent appeal off to a flying start.

I just sent 50 USD donation to P-t-R appeal .

You've sent $50.00 to R. Lowrie

Funds Availability Date: Oct 7, 2016

Thanks Diana for kick-starting the appeal, very much appreciated!  Would you like me to book a special date for the coming year?  Also, if you like the idea of a Tea Party, who would you invite, and, just to be nosey, why???? However, it is not compulsory to reveal any secrets!!!

Hi Pam

I will pick October 11th in honor of my dear childhood friend, Monica on her Bday!!! 

So today in Essex (UK) it is a very damp, gloomy and miserable day. Just the weather to meet up with some lovely ladies for a  cup of coffee , a yummy piece of cake and a good natter. I will donate $10. Anyone wish to join me for a chat ?

I'm with you Sharon, am a 'fool' for chocolate cake, especially with icing in the middle! I'm going to have a coffee AND a slice of cake, it is Friday after all!!!

Sharon, I'll join you for a cuppa tea, cake and natter so will donate $ we have a date for our get together? I'm looking forward to 'meeting' you at last Pam, would anyone else like to join us? :))

Tea and cake is Louise!

Pam, will we have a link to the calendar to see what dates are available to book for special occasions?

Yes Louise, I'm still working on it - as it isn't always easy to do something simple on Ning! Here we are so far

07/10/2016 Sharon, Pam, Louise :      = $30 raised so far!

We'd welcome more friends to join us today.

However, we can still take bookings for events that occur on the same day, I'm planning to provide a list, and, we will see the calendar filling up. If we get 3 bookings for the same day, they will be listed together, but on the calendar we can block out any days that haven't been picked up on. Hope this doesn't sound like gobbley-gook, but once I can get the visuals working it will become clearer - hopefully!

Thanks Pam....I know just how difficult the Ning system is. I have nightmares about uploading PoM and MNCP articles! Good luck with getting your visuals working!! :))) Lol



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).
