In the words of Dr. Seuss; "You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child".
During September, we celebrated International Literacy Day and in support of the cause we promised that for every Kaali purchase, we'd donate a book to the Wordworks Storybook Fund. With your help, we managed to donate 65 books which will be used to supply the Wordworks network of parents, volunteers, teachers and home visitors who are working to improve literacy in their communities.
Today, on Women's Day, we're celebrating and remembering all the amazing women out there, past and present. We remember how, since the march of 9 August 1956, the world has progressed for women, but we also remember how much progress still has to be made.

In May 2018, Kaali turned one. How quickly time flies when you're having fun! In celebration of our little milestone, we opted to donate a percentage of all our online sales for our birthday month to 18twenty8, which is an organisation that empowers young South African women, by assisting them with their educational and personal development.
With your help, we managed to raise R5,682.40. These funds will contribute to assisting an aspiring Economist, Tswelo, embark on her Bachelor of Commerce degree.
