IMPORTANT NOTE RE: THE NAVY BLUE SCARF PROJECT
This is a really important project for KAS and will benefit the cold school children.
Here's the Link to the Blue Scarf Project discussion. You will find all the details about scarf requirements and WHY we are doing this in the introduction
Pam is doing a "Totaliser" in the intro, so once a month when we hear from Ronda how many scarves have arrived, Pam will update it For every 10 scarves she will use a scarf symbol. Every time we reach 50, she will post a school bus.
The current number of scarves to arrive is 44 - we are close to getting our first bus!
The benefit KAS receives in having their mail picked up and delivered to the offices by the pharmaceutical company and in addition the monetary help in rent money are both real advantages for KAS. In return, we need to get on board and support KAS by making and donating the navy scarves
Please post photos of your scarves in the discussion and in Photos - we have an album started

If you are interested in learning how many squares and items are received each month, please visit the Monthly Squares List discussion found in DiscussionsCategories. [Click on Squares List and Tally]

Hi everyone. In the UK, Pam Johnson and I are trying to win £300 to buy wool so our knitters can make loads of squares. We are also hoping, if successful, to send some out to South Africa. All that's needed is enough votes to win each week in a poll set up by the company Mars. The link is: www.galaxyhotchocolate/fund/knit-forlife Anyone can vote from anywhere in the world - it just takes a couple of clicks on the mouse. Knit for Life is our UK registered charity, supporting KAS and raising funds to pay the shipping costs. Please help if you can. Thank you.
