KasCare's knit-a-square program for AIDS orphans

Dear Lion Brand

Thanks largely to a brief story in your e-newsletter two years ago, our charity for South African AIDS orphans got off the ground. We are so grateful for the response your customers and followers have given us.

Our challenge is getting bigger, not smaller. When you ran our story there were an estimated 1.4 million orphans and abandoned children. Now, the number is around 1.9 million and still rising by about 500 a day.

We wanted to thank you again, and to ask if you would consider publishing a 'then and now' story acknowledging the part your company has played. I've attached a PDF of the update.

With great gratitude.

Roger McDonald
KasCare Inc and Knit-a-square
