I am an optimist. I believe that if we do good things, "goodness will follow us." You can call me naive. I don't mind. This belief has only been strengthened by finding Knit-a-Square. How can you not be in awe of a family who chose to say "Yes, we can." When it would have been so much easier to say, "It's too big of a problem. There is nothing we can do." Look at all the goodness that has followed them. People all over the world have joined KAS, making it their own. We are making it our responsibility to keep these children warm. Whether you make one square or hundreds or simply "like" our page on Facebook, you are making a difference.
By launching my participation in the Knit-a-Squillion Challenge through the Internet, I have touched many more people than I could have hoped. And at the same time, I have received so much. The goodness and generosity of all of you involved in Knit-a-Square is humbling and heartwarming. No hate or violence or sadness or illness in the world can overshadow the joy I feel seeing the goodness of all you extraordinary people!
Look at what we have received this week:
Two continuing contributors
|Sophie from Quebec City|
|Dayle from British Columbia who was the first person to send in squares. She also added a rain poncho, so needed!|
And two new KAS friends
|Suzie from Iowa, 50 gorgeous squares!!|
And an amazing 50 hats from Sharon in Florida and 20 squares from her friend Ruth!
Thank you all so much for being such, selfless, generous people!
This brings our total to 153 squares, 55 hats and 1 Kascuddle!!
One last thing to share on this first day of April. Each month KAS proposes a theme for the squares as a motivation to keep the creative juices flowing. This month the theme is flags of the world and everyone is thrilled with the idea. It is only the first day and yet hundred of flags have already been made.
