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!

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.
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 beautiful...my 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
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 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.
