Do you accept items other than squares?
Absolutely! We also accept beanies/hats, hand-warmers and soft toys. Children of all ages love small, cuddly hand-made or gently loved toys.
What items do you most need?
Squares! Squares are at the heart of everything we do at KAS. It takes 35 of them to make a single blanket for a child in need. Our second most requested items are knitted hats and hand-warmers. Remember that by age 4, most children's heads are the same size as an adult's, so aim for adult-sized beanies. Hand-warmers need to be child-size to fit properly.
Do you accept items for babies?
Most of the children we visit are toddlers to 9 years old, so that is the age bracket we most need items for, but we have partnerships with several organizations in South Africa which help to distribute baby items.
