"Hi Deborah, thank you for thinking of KAS for a monetary donation. The only way to send directly is via PayPal. However, if this isn't an option for you, perhaps Helen Flagg can help. In the past she accepted US checks then sent the…"
"... and if we have any money left, we could all hit the thrift shops and load up on wonderful cuddly toys for the children. Just the other day I found a wonderful 'hairy' whale for 50 cents (looks like it has never been played with - all…"
"I'll keep my fingers crossed, Patricia. We are still getting rain combined with snow and our power has been out for about seven hours. It just came back on. Life without spring flowers and the Internet is the pits!"
"I wish to thank a lady whom I've never had the pleasure of meeting, but who gave a donation of 20€ to a friend of mine for KAS. She wanted it to help the children. I've just purchased bags of fruit with her donation.
I wish to…"
"What a jolly square, Chris. I am convinced Christmas is just around the corner even though it's mid-April. We are in the middle of an ice storm in southern Ontario. Lots of power-outs, schools are closed, the ground has turned white…"
I Hope this finds you doing well and enjoying those long days fill with lots of sun. I was wondering if you would consider being featured in Meet the KAS Family? It can be you and/or your church group. If you are interested, please just shoot me an email and I will send you some general questions to answer.
I currently have questions out to three other groups, but am not having much luck in getting information back. Time to move forward with other people and groups.
I am in and out of internet contact the next couple of days while traveling, but will be checking my email nightly.
Hello Anne, thanks for your message (I wasn't able to send a reply!) re posting photos into discussions - I am using an iPad, so as you say, the usual method won't work for me. At some point I will get to my computer and add my squares to the relevant challenge, so thanks for doing it thus far!
Hi Anne dear. The Pinterst site is stunning, stunning, stunning but I am wondering if you can keep more KAS photos in that top row. e.g. that gorgeous shot of the two children wrapped in love with the words on top '1.9 million etc'. If that could stay at the top it wold be good. You are getting visits to the www site to it is working really well. It is full of stunning photos. Great job. It looks as though anyone can put a photo there I will have a go.
Thanks Anne, Have to say it felt strange knitting a thick woolly jumper when the temperature here was in the late 20's but it is rewarding that a youngster will be cozy & warm in the South African winters:)
Sorry I have taken so long to answer had a family emergency this weekend, hopefully it is now resolved. Anyway, in answer to my small squares, yes, your grandson is only 15 minutes away and would be a great way to send them your way and thank you for your very kind thoughts, however, when talking to one of my Mother's senior neighbors I mentioned what I was doing and she volunteered to sew my squares together and also maybe would like to take part in making squares for Kas.........be nice to have a new recruit.........so thanks again for your help.

KAS supplied blankets, hats, handwarmers and toys to over 5,500 children in 2017. If Ronda’s wishes come true, in 2018 even more children will receive the gift of warmth and love from around the world.
