Have you visited our new KAS Shop yet?  If not, please drop in and check us out here

We have introduced several new items in the past few weeks and there are more to come in the near future.

The income from the KAS Shop goes a long way in enabling the team in South Africa to carry on the vital work of wrapping vulnerable children in snuggly blankets made by our members.

Some members prefer to sign up for an ongoing monthly donation through PayPal in order to fund our activities.  These monthly donations are vital!

However, others of us prefer to designate our donations for a specific purpose, or can only donate now and then so prefer to do it by making a shop purchase. 

The purpose of this discussion is to get your feedback and comments.  It is sort of a “customer survey” that will help us improve the shop on an ongoing basis.

We will occasionally focus on a “product of the month” and we hope to share with you a monthly overview of what is selling and what is not.  

Any good shop needs an interesting inventory that appeals to its customers, so your feedback is essential to our success. With that in mind, we hope you will chime in here and share your thoughts about what is good (and not so good) about the KAS Shop.

We also hope that you will offer suggestions for the Shop – products that you would like to see.  Remember, since this is a “Virtual Shop” all products must be downloadable.

Remember too, that we can accommodate new products that are “personal” – things you want to purchase for yourself, for your own use - like our note card series, which will soon be expanded. A previous discussion indicated there lots of possibilities in this area, so please put your thinking caps on and give us your ideas.

Sharon, thank you so very much for keeping us informed of our progress.  It's encouraging to see that each month we have moved a little further forward.  

I love this idea of honouring mothers and grandmothers by showing our support for these amazing women.  Where would the children be without the love and care of their Gogos!

Thank youfor the update. Ireally love the new CafePress items.

As I mentioned earlier, here in France Mother's Day is May 28. So,  I'll make my donation to the gogo's then for my M-i-L and in remembrance of my mum who taught me to love all kinds of crafting and thus has prevented me from ever being bored.

Sharon, thank you for adding the April shop sales figures and a big THANK YOU to everyone who made a purchase, your money goes direct to Ronda and will be used to fund the winter distributions. :)))


I have made  $50 donation to the Gogos but somehow ended up with my address as a shipping address. I hope this doesn't cause any problems.!! In the meantime ,Bless the Gogo's, and I decided not to wait for mother's day.

Sue, thank you for making such a generous donation to support the Gogos...your money will pay for 50 blankets to be stitched together....and will enable the Gogos to buy a little something for themselves with the $1 per blanket they receive. :)))

Whenever I make a shop purchase I have to add my home address as the shipping address, it's never caused a problem, it might be to do with PayPal?

Thank you Susan !   The Gogos will appreciate being able to buy, what we consider staples and they consider luxuries...such as soap.

As Louise said, PayPal asks for a shipping address eventhough nothing is shipped.  Just a peculiarity of the system :-)

Thanks for explaining about the shipping address Linda....I wasn't quite sure if it was to do with PayPal.

Thanks for explaining that  Louise and Linda. My mind is at rest. I have not had that issue before unless I haven't been looking properly !

Maybe they need the shipping address now in case we buy the t-shirts or mugs that are now available for purchase.

I'm so pleased that KAS is taking educational stuff to creches again, so important to encourage these skills to prepare a child for it's future.  Way to go.........x

Wow!! I must get in to look at the T shirts and mugs! I have a friend's birthday coming up next month.

They're really nice. There's a tote bag too which is cute. I'm just waiting for this month's pension to arrive in order to splurge!!!



The Donate button provides 2 options:

  1. One time donation
  2. Monthly subscription               [click the box]

Because of PayPal/banking fees, KAS asks that your donation be 5USD [or more].  Anything less, means your donation is eaten up with fees.  Thank you!


Our goal is to remove the monthly deficit that Ronda and her team have to deal with. You can:

1. Make a donation whenever you are able.

2. Sign up for an ongoing monthly donation (subscription).

3. Shop at the KasShop!
