We run a challenge each month. For the next three months it is all about squares. We have a grand total of 55,900 squares we are trying to achieve and would love you to participate.

Don't forget to post photographs of your work. We have an awesome gallery of the work of the KAS community which is really inspiring.

Some of our members further support KAS by making a small monthly donation through Paypal (top left hand corner). This is invaluable help as it ensures we can continue to ensure that your work is speedily distributed to the most needy children in South Africa. We are deeply grateful for any donation we receive, be it monetary or squares to help the orphans. Thank you.

A thought or two......even though some blankets have been making it through, the people in South Africa would like us to send squares. This is to avoid duty. Also we are to mark "No Commercial Value" and "For Charity" on the package. And where it asks for value we put zero.
BTW, I always send packages surface mail. That's the price I quoted in the other note. It takes 6-8 weeks but is considerably cheaper than air !
Let me know if you have any other questions.

Morning Karin, sounds like you have a good pile of squares ready to go. The large size blanket is 35 squares but there are other sizes as well.....the toddler size is 20 and the next size up is 28. Apparently there are lots of baby blankets so we are being asked not to send any that size right now.
Here's the link to the dimensions for garments, etc.
I usually send about 35-40 squares which seems to be the limit for sending from here. The most cost efficient way to send is a package with dimensions no more than 90 cm and weighing 2 kg. It cost $24.07 to send something this size. Anything else (smaller or bigger ) starts to get really expensive.
Looking forward to seeing your squares on the photos page.

Hi Karin,
Welcome to the forum ! We have a good time chatting back and forth so jump in anytime. Have you joined the Canadian Corner. It is quiet right now but sometimes we have quite the discussions. I live in northern Ontario but know Belleville. My sister lived there for a while and my cousin lives near by.
Do you knit or crochet ?


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.
