About Knit a Square:

Crocheting and knitting for charity, especially for children in need, is a meditative act of love.  More importantly, it makes a difference. There are many millions of abandoned and vulnerable children and AIDS orphans in southern Africa, who live in dire poverty.  Many lack the very basics we take for granted—love, shelter, food, education and warmth.  We support the hard working children's charities, like Hotel Hope, who strive to provide for their basic human needs. Your crocheting and knitting for charity can provide an extra dimension, warmth.  Your contribution of squares to this crochet and knitting project adds to the many thousands of 8"/20cm squares from around the world, which are joined into blankets and distributed to these children.  The finished blankets add more than warmth to the children’s lives. As co-founder of KasCare, Ronda said in a South African press interview: "They are a currency we use to tell the children exactly how beloved they are. We tell them they are the future, unique and special.”

As a children's charity, KasCare’s knit-a-square program has two goals:

1. To warm and comfort these children with blankets, hats, vests and pullovers.

2. To raise awareness of this mostly hidden human tragedy.

By contributing, you not only make an AIDS orphan, abandoned or vulnerable child warm, you help too, to bring the plight of the children to the attention of whoever you tell or ask to join with you in this project.

I have knitted for charities like Knit a Square many times! These charities are absolutely fabulous. Something that I found was nice is that you can mindlessly knit the squares and it is pretty relaxing. You can also use up leftover yarn from other projects that normally would have gone to waste. I had some of my students that wanted to learn how to knit, knit these squares as they are good practice and go to a wonderful cause. This is definitely a charity worth supporting!

Will you accept baby vests I have knitted, they were for an orphanage in Cambodia, but now my contact has stopped travelling overseas.
