We are sure you will all be delighted that we were joined last night on the forum by two very special KAS people, Lindiwe and Wandile. Most of you will know them well from the tireless work they do for KAS and the children in Soweto.
Lindi and Wandi do not have access to the internet where they live. When they take a break from opening and sorting the squares at Ronda's home (and they may have to be encouraged to take a break as Wandi says, it is addictive work), they are keen to get to know you all.
We are sure that you would want to use this opportunity to talk to both of them about the fantastic work they do, finding children and creches, organising sewing groups and distributing the blankets on your behalf.

Hi Lindiwe and Wandile, how lovely to have the chance to thank you for all your hard work. We are familiar with your photos and have heard lots of good things about you and now you will have the chance to get to know some of us. Have you seen that the first challenge bus iThemba has been filled?
Welcome, ladies! How exciting that you will be able to get on the forum a little!! We certainly do appreciate all of your hard work!! Our squares wouldn't do any good without people to open, sort, sew, and distribute =); I am certain that your job is much harder than my job of just making squares =). I have often thought how glad I am that I don't have to figure out how to organize all of those random squares into blankets; I think that takes a special talent!! Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your jobs easier!
Hello Girls,great to have you on site. I echo the thoughts of Christine and Rachel A.
Any information you can let us read, we will with great interest.
Hi you wonderful women! As I mentioned in my welcomes to you on your profile pages, I am thrilled beyond words to have this direct contact with you. Your value to Knit A Square cannot be overstated, you're like Ronda's "right hand men, er women!" Your smiles are always so bright and they encourage me to keep going, your smiles give me hope. I know we're making a difference and I feel we are partners with you and Ronda in helping to warm the precious children of South Africa. Thank you so so much for being there and for helping. I agree with everyone else, if there is anything we can do to make your jobs easier, do let us know. We'd give you big hugs if we were there, we love your great caring hearts and we love you. Thank you for working with us and for helping Ronda so much! :)
Hello Lindi and Wandi:
Obviously we all feel the same way about how hard you both work in helping Ronda!! We wouldn't be as far along as we are without you!!! I'll keep knitting if you can manage to keep opening, sorting and distributing!! Thank you again!!!
The "Cape Cod Gogo" XOXOXOX
Hello! Just want to say you're incredible, fantastic, amazing, inspiring women.

Hi, Lindi and Wandi!
I'm so glad to get this opportunity to tell you how much I admire your hard work and dedication. I recently learned that you two go out into the almost inaccessible wilderness areas and locate creches and other child care facilities that need KAS's help. What a difficult job, physically, logistically, and also emotionally! I thank you so much for undertaking it! Those of us who knit/crochet in comfortable homes and only have to worry about easy issues like yarn costs, postal regulations and postage, truly, TRULY respect and admire your hands-on work. Thank you!
Hi Lindiwe and Wandile, Thank you so much for all the work you do for the children (and Ronda of course). It must be a big task to find children and creches, to make people enthousiastic for sewing, I really appreciate it and I am convinced that our squares, blankets, garments, hats and toys are in good hands. :-) BIG HUG, Anneke
