Gloria has put together another amazing issue of the Snips that will keep you up to date with the Knit a Square community.

Leanne has a new Podcast where she is interviewing KAS members.

There is some news about the little activity in the KAS Barn.

Our Corona Corner is full of inspiration.

The April issue of Knit a Square Snippets has been posted to the Forum.

There is a wonderful tribute to KAS Sister Anne Powell, information about our first KAL headed by Rebecca in the UK and so much more.

You're right - the Galaxy money was very useful so it is worth persevering.

No problem.  I hope a few people do try it.  It took a few years for you to get the Galaxy money so if we perservere with these, someone well could win eventually.

Thanks so much for the 'plug' Joan  The income Knit for Life receives from EasyFundraising is so important especially at the moment as we have had to cancel the fundraising activities we were planning for this spring & summer.  We have to pay to ship our boxes to KAS but, in view of the volume of knitting we send, we like to use the income from EasyFundraising to send a donation to KAS to help with the distributions. £250 would be an amazing contribution to funds.

Easyfundraising are having an Easter draw.  Good time to sign up if you haven't done so yet to raise funds for Knit for Life who send funds on to KAS.
Prize is £250 for Knit for Life and £250 Thorntons voucher.
Enter before 22nd April.
All you have to do is go to their site and click on one of the retailers involved.  No purchase necessary and I have never had any spam or other problem with this organisation.

The March Snippets has been posted to the Forum. http://square-circle-forum.ning.com/forum/topics/kas-snippets-march...

In it you will find the latest information about COVID 19 in South Africa.  They are currently in a 21 day lock down, yes, the entire county.  This started on March 26.

We have updates from our March Theme, The Blanket Room and news from our sisters around the world.

We pray that you are managing the restrictions in your individual countries in regards to the Coronavirus.  This is a challenging time for the world.  Our stashes maybe getting smaller in light of staying indoors, and we know your hearts are full of love for the children in South Africa.  

Please take care and stay safe.

So very sorry to hear this sad news but you must all do what you can to stay safe and well.

Meanwhile, rest assured that those that can, will carry on knitting for Knit-a-Square.

Update from Ronda about Corona Virus

Things are hotting up in SA regarding Covid-19 - the president due to speak in an hour or two and we suspect it will be the lock down talk.
I have already asked a Lindi, Wandi, Mabel and Nani to make this Tues their last volunteer day until 5th May ... they wanted to continue but it’s not viable as most are using public transport in between times and that is where the most contact transmission will take place. So I’ll do the post tomorrow with Themba for the last time ... and deliver it to the barn ... and that will be the end for more than a month. I’m so sorry to give such bad news but if this virus takes hold in the high density areas it will cause total devastation.

Please do not send any post to South Africa until further notice.

Thanks to all of you for your support of Knit a Square.

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.
