 It doesn’t commit you to anything but it may just win funds that Knit for Life can and will donate to KAS. We have until the end of December to vote.

Elaine Jones and Pam Johnson [UK]  are trying to win £7,000[$12,600] from the Paypal Giving Fund for Knit for Life but they need our help. If you have an Ebay account – or would be willing to register for one – go to: :http://www.ebay.co.uk/egw/ebay-for-charity/charity-profile/?NP_ID=6...

Click on the “Save as Favourite” button then follow the onscreen instructions, and that’s it.

Yes, it will be good to clear out the stacks of squares we've all collected.  The SA team will be very busy for quite a while :-)

Great to hear the postal strike in SA is over finally!  I've been quietly making squares and stashing them away so that I'll have another parcel ready to send out in January :) By the sounds of it, the team in SA have lots and lots of parcels to open once again - a wonderful thing!!

Thanks, Pam.  Terrific news. xo

You will be very pleased to know that the strike has ended!

THE POSTAL STRIKE IN SOUTH AFRICA IS OVER  - OFFICIAL!

Wendy collected 27 boxes and 24 large mail bags full of post today and Bryanston expect to receive post for KAS from the central sorting depot - everyday! It took three trips, so the team will be having an opening day Thursday!

Thanks Anne for bringing this to our attention.  We don't want Ronda paying for expensive courier charges !

Comment by Anne Powell on November 22, 2014 at 11:17pm

The Postal Strike is not yet resolved and all of us have squares piling up, but please do not give in to the temptation to send them by a courier service! A few parcels have arrived this way, and it is causing big problems for Ronda.

Thanks for the tip on the Helpful Hints tab, Anne. I'll see if I can get a photo on soon.
