I know the postage is expensive from the US since you can only send air mail. Perhaps you should post your message in the USA Group in case there is someone living near you with the same problem. Larger parcels cost less per…"
"Good for you, Aunt Nellie. I have a pile of squares here to get weighed, wrapped and posted. I've just made a "note to self" to visit the KAS Shop and Pay the Customs and Handling Fee when mail them.

"A great big thank you to everyone who shopped in the KAS Shop in 2019. We managed to raise a total of $6907.83 USD, all of which goes directly to the team in S.A. to support our work there.

LET’S TALK SHOP 2020Knit-a-square relies on contributions of squares, hats, handwarmers and toys… and financial donations. Yes, financial donations!

Expenses include:A postal charge of $3.75 US for every parcel received; • Rent for the KasBarn; • Fuel for the KasVan; • A stipend for the gogos ($1.50 US per blanket) andanother for Ronda’s ‘Right Hand.’ There are several…See More
"Thanks, Andrea, for the wonderful graphs. It looks like there was a shortfall every month in 2019 except for February and the amazing spike in December.
I'm trying to wrap my head around all of this, so I have a few questions.
Am I right in…"

Your discussion appeared in the KAS FINANCES category. I am moving it to Questions, Answers and Help where it might get more attention. I see you already have some answers - hope they were helpful"
Anne, I'm having a problem making a one-time donation to the Peace of Mind campaign. When I select the Donate box it does give me the form. However, when I click in the amount box and start typing, it immediately puts a comma in the field. I'm trying to donate $100. However, I don't know how to type it in the box. I don't want to make a mistake and have it show up as $10,000 on my credit card. I've had this problem in the past and that's why I've just purchase multiple quantities in the KAS Shop for larger donations. I hope this makes sense. :)
I Hope this finds you doing well and enjoying those long days fill with lots of sun. I was wondering if you would consider being featured in Meet the KAS Family? It can be you and/or your church group. If you are interested, please just shoot me an email and I will send you some general questions to answer.
I currently have questions out to three other groups, but am not having much luck in getting information back. Time to move forward with other people and groups.
I am in and out of internet contact the next couple of days while traveling, but will be checking my email nightly.
Hello Anne, thanks for your message (I wasn't able to send a reply!) re posting photos into discussions - I am using an iPad, so as you say, the usual method won't work for me. At some point I will get to my computer and add my squares to the relevant challenge, so thanks for doing it thus far!
Hi Anne dear. The Pinterst site is stunning, stunning, stunning but I am wondering if you can keep more KAS photos in that top row. e.g. that gorgeous shot of the two children wrapped in love with the words on top '1.9 million etc'. If that could stay at the top it wold be good. You are getting visits to the www site to it is working really well. It is full of stunning photos. Great job. It looks as though anyone can put a photo there I will have a go.
Thanks Anne, Have to say it felt strange knitting a thick woolly jumper when the temperature here was in the late 20's but it is rewarding that a youngster will be cozy & warm in the South African winters:)
