Yes, I send a photo with all the squares laid out and marked as to each panel. However, however they do it, as long as they get to the needy children.

Laurie, we have had the same situation at our church.  As far as I can tell, they do try to put the squares together that go together.  Do you lay them out and take a photo and include it with the squares?  Doing that is very helpful for them when they receive the squares so they know what to do.

Finally found a picture of my crayon squares in the blanket room 2017photos! Fun. I usually can't find any of mine. I'd like to know when I send a picture of my suggestion on how to put my squares together, if the ladies go with my suggestion. I have been sending packs of 35 squares that go together. The picture is #74. Thanks Christine!

I am "hearing" you, ladies, that the postal costs have escalated in the U.S. so much that sending squares on a consistent basis is now difficult.  However, several of you have indicated you would like to contribute to KAS when you can but do not have a Paypal account.  I am most willing to be the conduit to pass along your KAS contributions whenever you feel you can contribute.  Please keep my address below handy and when you feel you can contribute to KAS send me a check with a note about what it is for and I will deposit it and send the amount to Ronda with your name.  Please include an email address in your note because Ronda tries to email a thank you to each contributor.  For those who are contributing now for this current fundraiser, please do include an email address.  I should have mentioned that in my earlier information.  Many thanks.

Thanks so much, Mary Anne, for your donation.  Ronda has determined that she needs at least $2600 per month (which includes rent of $1300) to run KAS.  The donations have just not been coming in.  I think we are all going to have to put our shoulders to the wheel and back her up on a more consistent basis in the future.  I know we can do it now that we know what is needed.

Hi Helen,

I wanted to let you know that, immediately after seeing your post yesterday, I sent Ronda a large donation.  I am also going to increase the monthly amount that I donate.  As Debbie mentioned, the cost of sending squares has gotten so high, and I'm afraid I haven't been sending as many lately.  So, I am happy that I can help Ronda out this way, and still try to mail squares every few months :)!  Thank you so much for the head's up Helen!  You are such a blessing to this group!

Sending love and hugs to all my KAS friends!


Mary Anne
