Please donate to help knit-a-square help the children
South Africa has an estimated 1.7 million AIDS orphans and abandoned children. Their sad tally is swelled by an average of 500 new children a day, mostly through HIV/AIDS and crippling poverty.
For these children, a blanket can be the difference between life and death. Between hope and despair.
KasCare’s knit-a-square program has inspired more than 7,000 volunteers in 52 countries to knit and crochet more than 250,000 8”/20 cm blanket squares and 25,000 knitted and crochet hats, vests and sweaters.
People all over the world are saying:‘We can change this, one square at a time.’
Now, we need your help to continue this work to keep warm every child who is cold, who has been abandoned or orphaned, who is infected or affected by HIV/AIDS and who lives in extreme poverty.
In order to do this, KasCare must fund help for our hard working volunteers who collect, sort, record and bundle the thousands of squares and garments that are arriving every week. They must have proper working, storage space and adequate transport for collections and distributions.
We also need to sustain the resources required to find, persuade and inform the millions of knitters and crocheters throughout the world to contribute. Then we can continue to put tens of thousands of blankets on the children each year.
Your work does much more too
Each one of you who contributes through knitting and crochet or donating, tells some else about the plight of these children and they tell someone else. Soon hundreds of thousands of people will know and many of whom will feel compelled to act.
WE MUST ACT. This is a tragedy of unparalleled proportions.
