"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…"
"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…"
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…"
"Thanks, Helen, for the thoughtful posting about the financial crisis. I have sent a donation through Paypal and will continue to send monthly donations as I can. The postage increase has greatly limited the number of squares that I can send but I…"

You all are so sweet to think of me and to also wish me well with my studies. I will be coming back full force when I am finished. I still have until Aug. 14th and with 2 small kids, homeschooling, summer, and visiting family along with classwork, I had to pull myself from the forum a bit. I used to be a very regular visitor since the Winter, but... once things are finished, I plan to be not only crocheting and knitting more, but getting back to you all in a timely matter. I am here and am online since my classes are online, but it is very time consuming and I stay up working, but try to get as much sleep as possible to keep on trucking along. You all are a blessing not only to me, but also KAS. Keep up the great work. Blessings,
Michelle.....my name is gayle...and I am from Washington State...way up by the Canadian border...I found KAS a few months back and have sent several bags and boxes to them...can I join your United States group? I think this is so much fun helping all these little children....will be waiting to hear from you, gayle
Hi, Michelle! Thanks for the welcome! I notice you are in Virginia.
Although I married a Texan decades ago and live in Houston, I am a native
Virginian. Graduated from Mr. Jefferson's University in Charlottesville,
where I grew up. Best of luck on your grad work. I know you will be
so relieved when it is finished!!
