THE GREAT KAS TWO DOLLAR CHALLENGE

This month, in KAS Finances, we have been talking about the importance of ongoing monthly subscriptions (see below).  We were hoping that anyone who does not currently subscribe might consider doing so if they are able.

One of our KAS Sisters, Arlene Guerin from Canada, has come up with an awesome idea for those of us who have already subscribed.  Imagine the difference it would make to Ronda and our South African team, if those of us who have existing subscriptions could increase them by just $2.00 a month… a ‘drop in the ocean’ for most of us, a huge difference in financial stability for KAS.

WILL YOU JOIN IN THE GREAT KAS TWO DOLLAR CHALLENGE IF YOU ARE ABLE?

  HERE’S HOW TO DO IT:

To change the amount of an ongoing payment through Paypal or your credit card, it is necessary to cancel the current subscription and start a new one.

  1. Go to your Paypal Log In page and log in (if you’ve forgotten how, just Google Paypal Log In and click – you will get your own page)
  2. Click on the Settings icon (beside Log Out) at the top of the page.
  3. Click on Payments in the blue Menu bar
  4. Click on Manage Automatic Payments
  5. From the list on the left, click on Knit-a-Square
  6. The next page will show your status as ‘Active’. Click on Cancel to change.

TO START A NEW SUBSCRIPTION, GO TO THE FORUM Main Page.

  1. Click on the Donate button in the right sidebar
  2. Knit-a-square page will open
  3. You can choose to donate through Paypal or your credit card
  4. Enter the amount you wish to send
  5. DON’T FORGET TO CHECK ‘MAKE THIS A MONTHLY DONATION’

 

THE  IMPORTANCE  OF  AN  ONGOING SUBSCRIPTION

Every month, Ronda faces several non-optional expenses like rent, customs charges, and fuel for the KASvan and she needs to know these are covered so she can balance the budget.

Even a small subscription like $5 per month makes a huge difference in her planning and gives financial stability to our operations in South Africa.

If you are able, please consider subscribing to an ongoing monthly donation.  While it may seem like a drop in the ocean, it makes a huge difference in our ability to keep wrapping our blankets around vulnerable children.

I'm in!  I just signed up for the TWO DOLLAR CHALLENGE.

I tried to do this on Sunday, but hit a snag and when I went back to check my Paypal account, the changes had not shown up.

 Today I re-did it, following the above instructions and it worked immediately.  

Hi Anne, I've joined you.  Thank you for the clear instructions. By the way, my first crocuses are blooming.  Really sorry for the bad weather that you are having back home.

Thank you Mili!

No crocuses here unfortunately.  The schools were closed today because of the snow and wind.and wind.

I'm in too - I did $2.50 monthly which is £2 - very easy.    Every little helps ❤️.  (our little snowdrops and crocuses are showing now too).

Thank you Karen!  I think I should be moving to a better climate!

Hi Anne,

I just increased my monthly donation.  Hope this is a huge success .

Thank you Alice - we're off to a great start!

Great idea, I’m in!

Thank you, Chris!  That makes five of us

I've increased mine, and can also join in with having snowdrops and crocuses in the garden.

Thank you, Patricia!  I am a bit jealous - it will be weeks and weeks before we see a crocus in my part of the world.

Enjoy these until yours are out Anne....

DONATE: KNIT-A-SQUARE

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!
