The June issue of Snippets is filled with great information.
 
We have a touching letter from one of our partners, Mama Ntombi's Community Projects (MNCP), that is a must read.
Check it all out on the Forum:

THE  IMPORTANCE  OF  AN  ONGOING SUBSCRIPTION

Every month, Ronda faces several non-optional expenses like rent, customs charges, and fuel for the

KASvan and she needs to know these are covered so she can balance the budget.

Even a small subscription like $5 per month makes a huge difference in her planning and gives

financial stability to our operations in South Africa.

If you are able, please consider subscribing to an ongoing monthly donation.  While it may seem

like a drop in the ocean, it makes a huge difference in our ability to keep wrapping

our blankets around vulnerable children.

Have you seen our two current Christmas fundraisers now on the forum?

Peace of Mind is our 'gift' to the team in SA - a little extra for those times when there is 'more month than money'.

and


We're Decorating a Memory Tree - a lovely way to remember loved ones from our past or a share a special Christmas memory.

Hi Aussie KASfriends.

The postal system in South Africa has had a 'shake up' these past months and they seem bent on collecting as much duty/customs fees at their end, as they possibly can. I urge you all to scroll down the page on the following link, until you read the message from our dear Ronda, regarding this. Please everyone, mark your parcels as a gift, no commercial value and in the box where it asks for the value, place $0, or if you have a p.o. like mine, who will not accept that, place $1 value. For the future of KAS, this is extremely important, as Ronda and the fundraising team are having difficulty acquiring sufficient funds to pay these postal fees. Thank you so much for your consideration.

Here is the link: Remember, you will have to scroll down the page to find it.  :))

Hi Tricia,

Hope you can overcome the arthritis and do some knitting, I would be really sad if I couldn't knit/crochet.

Just a suggestion, but have you tried Emulgel or Emulgel for Arthritis? I use the Emulgel on my neck and it does help to reduce pain and swelling.

Otherwise, perhaps next time you see your doctor you could ask him/her about it?

Also my mother has a lot of arthritis and she recently tried bamboo needles which she said are lighter and easier to work with.

Hope this helps some.
