Craft for a Cause
This is a wonderful opportunity to support KasCare's knit-a-square program to warm and comfort the vulnerable and orphaned children of South Africa by taking part in Joann's Craft for a Cause contest 2010. You can purchase your yarn and needles here for the competition and earn KasCare additional income to support our work in South Africa.

Joann is a one of the USA's largest craft suppliers. They have issued a call to
craft and give!
By supporting KasCare's knit-a-square program, not only do we get more squares to make blankets for the children, you stand a chance of winning a US$1500 prize for the best crafted item, and knit-a-square stands a chance of winning US$50.000!
Imagine how many more children we could reach if that money went to support and grow our volunteer base in South Africa.
We could extend our reach into more of the hundreds of creche's in the shack settlements, find more and more organizations and orphanages with whom to partner and set up more sewing groups, enabling us to make more blankets and warm more children faster. It would allow us too to extend to the poverty stricken rural areas.
So please join us as we
CRAFT FOR A CAUSE.
The conditions are simple. You have to use Joann products to enter the competition. You can order your products online here. Not only does that allow you to enter, but KasCare will get a commission for everything you buy.
Then you need to photograph you square or hat and enter the competition here making sure you tell them you are supporting KasCare's Knit-a-square program. (KasCare is the official name of our charity).
The charity that wins is the one that receives the most items, so get out your needles and hooks everyone and lets not only craft for a cause but make sure that every stitch counts to warm and comfort a child.
These children have so little, they may have lost their parents or be losing them as you read. 500 children a day become orphans in South Africa alone. As you work, think of them and what it means to be alone, as a young child, with, no support network, few belongings, perhaps infected as well as affected by HIV/AIDS. And then imagine them with a beautiful hand made blanket to warm and comfort them.
A blanket makes a real difference.
So c'mon everyone, call your family and friends and let's craft for a cause and keep a cold child warm.
Enter here today! We have until October 31 to win the big prize for the children.
