“The International Day of Peace, observed each year on 21 September, is a global call for ceasefire and non-violence. This year, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is calling on young people around the world to take a stand for peace under the theme, Youth for Peace and Development.” *
I love the slogan:
Peace=Future, The Math is Easy.
Recently I experienced a moment of joyful hope. You can imagine my utter delight when I found a lovely poem about KAS written by my daughter. I was doodling in my notebook about KasCare and having encountered writer’s block I left the notebook on the table. I thought no more of it until I saw this lovely piece written about the children we serve.
Ongoing, children always
Playing and laughing whenever they can
Having to fight
AIDS everyday, but
Never giving up
Someone like you can save these kids.

KasCare and the Knit-a-square project will continue as long as there are orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa. We are able to carry on the work because of your donations and the lovely items you knit and crochet. The next time you’re looking at a pattern, trying to make something a bit smaller or something a bit bigger just remember: The Math is Easy.
I cannot imagine a more beautiful day than the day we’ll no longer be needed. Until then, as always, thanks for your support so that together we can continue to make a difference.
