Hi, Sandy's husband Roger is writing a proposel. It will probably take a while as when I first contacted the USAID office they said they got my e-mail right away but it took months to get to the next step which was for us to write a proposel and submit it which Roger is doing. Hope it works as we got lots sent when we could send to Planet Purl and the Apo box postage is very reasonable. Roger said he would let me know when he hears back from them. Jan
Thanks so much for the suggestion to contact the GFWC in my state, PA. I just heard from the District Director that they like the idea of KAS and want to make us their International Project! Your suggestion was superb!!
Hi Patty sounds like you are helping a lot! Thank you so much for your support, I'm sure you'll enjoy the wonderful people on the forum. My advice would be to put that question "how can I help" to the people in the forum, they will come up with some brilliant answers for you!
Some of our members further support KAS by making a small monthly donation through Paypal (top left hand corner). This is invaluable help as it ensures we can continue to ensure that your work is speedily distributed to the most needy children in South Africa. We are deeply grateful for any donation we receive, be it monetary or squares to help the orphans. Thank you.
