On August 7 KAS collected more that 7000 squares from St Stithians Girls' Preparatory School.  Here is Estelle's account:

This morning Ronda, Liz and I collected over 7000 squares from St Stithians Girls’ Preparatory School. The knitting and crocheting of the squares is organized by Lisa Grainger a teacher at the Prep, and she contacts Ronda every year to collect squares. Next year she would like us to collect on Mandela Day when they have a special celebration at the school. The delightful pupils helped load the KAS van and Liz and I filled our boots with bags of squares. Thank you Lisa, pupils, parents and grannies who knitted these squares.

Thanks you young ladies for all you are doing to make a huge difference in the lives of other children in South Africa.

Wow!! What a haul !! An inspiration to others of their generation.

A heart-warming read.   It is fabulous to see that those of us who have something to give, will give it whole-heartedly.    Thank you. X

Wonderful! I second Bev and Karen!

It is so lovely to see the girls thinking about others - and what a huge number of squares!

This is absolutely awesome!!!  Well done girls!   You are making an incredible difference in the lives of so many children.  Beautiful!

Two more pictures from Ronda.

Oh WOW. How fantastic!  This is tremendous. Immediately makes me think I must go to the KAS shop to support the Gogo's in putting these squares into blankets.  Well done everyone and God bless Lisa Grainger and all the children who worked so lovingly and so hard on these!

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
