KAS VISITS THE HOUSE

KIDO'S CUTE KIDS REPRESENT KAS!

A few months back we decided we needed to take some updated photos for the purpose of marketing Knit-A-Square.  As we are mindful of not to be seen to exploit these orphaned and vulnerable children while promoting the purpose of KAS, we approached Julia at Kido’s and asked her whether she could obtain written and signed permission from the guardian/s of some of the children who attend her Day Care, for us to photograph them for our marketing purposes. 

They were only too happy to assist, so in due course Wendy and Wandi set off for the photo shoot/distribution.

The studio!

The children were apparently really patient and enduring as they were moved around from one location to another within the school grounds, and were asked to pose with the various KAS items they had been given.

I was in Cape Town at the time, visiting my daughter, so could not be there myself.

 One little girl could not work out why Wendy was taking a photo of the back of the blankets and she could not resist a peek!
