As you will all know, Ronda in South Africa needs funds to enable her and her wonderful team to continue distributing the blankets, hats, hand warmers and toys that we make and send.

We don’t like to keep asking members to contribute financially, but without the necessary funds, KAS SA would struggle to continue to help the vulnerable children.


We thought it would be a fun idea for members, and perhaps friends and family of our members, to plant a virtual ‘KAS Garden’ by donating $5 for each flower, fruit, vegetable, shrub or tree chosen.

Please choose something from the list and share with us the reason for your choice… it could be a favourite of yours, or a loved one, or perhaps a happy memory.

It may be that what you want isn’t on the list. If so, please tell us what you would like to plant. I hope we can also learn from each other, as what may be favourites in one country may not even grow in another!

It doesn’t matter at all if more than one person chooses the same flower; it will be nice to have something else in common with each other, in addition to our love for KAS.

We hope that over the next 6 weeks our garden will grow, and as it is a virtual garden, all things will grow well together, no matter what the season. The best thing is that there won’t be a bug in sight!

Great idea Christine. But before seating for tea in the garden, could you please plant my newest favorite flowers Himalayan blue poppies for YOU Christine and ALL the KAS-SISTERS around the world committed to keep "our children warm"  To you ALL infinite THANKS.

(donation of 50.00UDS)

Diana, thank you so much for your generosity! I can totally see why you love these beautiful blue flowers! 

I am very happy to do a bit more planting before I sit down I have planted quite a few for you......

Himalayan Blue Poppies 

What a sight to behold in the KAS garden, Diana....absolutely GLORIOUS!......and very generous of you.  xo

Think this is a lovely idea! I’ve just made a donation and would like to suggest having a white camellia bush in the KAS garden in memory of my Mother.

I moved into the family home after my parents died and during renovations had to move a white camellia that my Mother had planted under the lounge window. 

Fortunately it thrived in its new home and every Spring when it blooms I think of her.

Hello Susie, thank you for joining our KAS garden fundraiser. I’m glad your mother’s Camellia settled into it’s new home in the garden, flowers and shrubs can evoke such lovely memories.

White Camellia

Thank you for sharing with us, Susie. How lovely it must be to look upon it with memories of your Mum.

Camellia bushes are so late m-i-l had a pink one in her garden.

I met with my friend Marilyn, and told her about our KAS Garden fundraiser. She has asked me to plant.......

Bluebells for her mum, as they are her favourite flowers

Snowdrops in memory of her mother-in- law, as they were her favourite flowers

She kindly asked me to plant whatever I would like for my birthday, so I would like to add some

Wild flowers

and finally Marilyn has aked for a table, that we can sit at, chat, drink tea and eat our lunch.......

Thank you Marilyn x

How kind of your friend, Marilyn! 

A beautiful setting for lunch, Chris.  :))

Hi how do you donate I'm from UK .I thought a pond or water feature would be nice ?
  • Hi Jane, write a message here to say what you'd like to (virtually) pay for.   Donating can be done via the section on the right of the page - large yellow icon.   The process is straightforward as you're prompted/guided automatically.    A nominal 5 per item is what's suggested as an amount.     Thank you for your interest and kindness.

Hi Jane, thank you for your interest in our fundraiser. Karen has kindly explained what to do, the steps to donate are easy to follow once you press the donate button, we are suggesting $5 which when converted is about £4, the rate varies slightly each day.

I love your idea of a pond or water feature, if you decide you want me to put one in our virtual KAS Garden, please let me know in this discussion. Thanks again for your interest.

Jane has sent me a message to say she would like me add a pond to our garden, thank you Jane, I hope you like this one........



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!

Please follow this discussion for monthly updates, current financial reports and ideas on what we can all do to help. Click link :

"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.
