The number of squares, hats, handwarmers and toys
received in South Africa in 2016 [red line] compared to 2015 [blue line].
The focus for 2016 and for some time to come will be:
squares for blankets, hats, handwarmers and cuddly toys.
In the 2016 Graphs the Tops will not be recorded.
Handwarmers and toys were not added to the graphs in 2015 so only 2016 contributions can be shown.
Squares: 4.212 ( 120 blankets)
OVERALL TOTALS 2016:
177.306 Squares (equal to at about 5065 blankets), 8.312 Hats, 4.932 pairs of Handwarmers and 3.232 Toys were received!
DISTRIBUTION FIGURES 2016
In combination with blankets in stock in 2015 - ready for distribution in 2016- and blankets made this year,
RONDA AND THE TEAM MANAGED TO DISTRIBUTE 6.000 BLANKETS!
Last but not least, other "warmers" such as KAScuddles, T-sweaters, cardigans, and Heather's winterwarmers were received from loving and caring crafters around the world. As our S.A. team is no longer able to distribute these items, Ronda very kindly passes them along to third parties such as Outreach Foundation, Rape Crisis Centre in Beoni, Hotel Hope, and Baragwanath Hospital.
Thank you ALL so very much!
Hi Karla, I saw your squares and other items in the squares list of December 2015. Unfortunately we cannot add the squares lists at the moment. As soon as we can we will upload the squares lists of December 2015 and January 2016.
In December one package was opened, containing 35 squares and other items.
Hope this is what you were looking for. Anneke xx
Karla sorry I meant to say that one package from you was opened. There were a lot more packages from other members too. Sorry for the mistake.
Thank you Anneke you try to comfort me. I know about a parcel, which is in the squares list of December 2015. But I wrote about the parcels I sent during the previous months and haven´t been delivered yet.
I'm sorry Karla. Let's wait and see the next month's list. I know there was a backlog.
Sorry I missed this section, Karla I have just replied to your earlier comment up the page a bit!
Don't worry too much Karla, the postal strike as stated did cause a lot of chaos. I too have so far only seen 1 of my parcels out of about the last 6 on the lists since last October. Fingers crossed that our parcels will be received and opened soon now that the postal strike chaos has ended.
Thank you Anneke for uploading the list in the meantime until they can be uploaded inside the usual link.
Are the ones list below the December Received Squares? I am still hoping to see my 'sent in Sept.' one. I know the Newsflash says January.
Hi Maudie, the lists are the January received squares. The message for Karla concerns the December Squares List, which unfortunately cannot be added to the usual link too.
Maudie, I checked the October 2015 squares list, your name and parcel are mentioned. Here is the link to the list: http://www.knit-a-square.com/sites/default/files/2015%20October.pdf
Thanks - that October list of 227 was 90 sent in April and 137 sent in July. The 90 sent on 14/9/15 would not be listed in the October list (too soon) - it might be on the December list.
Just checked the December list, unfortunately no parcels from you Maudie.
Thank you. It will come in February!!
