Good Morning Aussie members.

Just a friendly reminder for those who are able to donate to our appeal for our dear Ronda and the children of South Africa that she distributes our goodies to....every $ counts. In this link you will find many ways you can donate...a one off, a monthly, by Paypal, credit card or I am happy to accept cheques that I can then bank and paypal to Ronda on your behalf (of which you would receive a message from me when I receive your cheque and an email from Ronda when I process the Paypal payment. You can let me know on this group page and I can private message you my postal address.

Once again the link to the appeal is:

Thank you Everyone.  :))

Hi Aprile.

This was a comment made by Kathy in the UK re having issues with a paypal payment, thought this might have applied to your issue with paypal, too.

Hi Louise and Sharon
A thought I've had - is it worth an email say perhaps twice a year to remind those who pay a monthly donation via PayPal to ensure they keep their details up to date when their card attached to the account expires and a new one is issued? I remember to do this when I have a new debit card issued, but maybe that's because I use PayPal quite often. If a member has set up a PayPal account simply for KAS donations they may not realise? Just a thought! xx

You're welcome Aprile.  :)) I'm not really savvy with credit cards and online/computer stuff, so prefer paypal to do it for me....lol.

Hi again Bev. Oh yes, I see what you mean: this is possible with a credit or debit card instead of using a PayPal account if you want to make one-off donations, but you have to have a PayPal account if you want to donate for the rent each month automatically. That's what they messed up for me, so I think I'll just have to organise myself to send a donation for rent from my debit card every month manually rather than automatically. Thanks for your help Bev!

I haven't tried it, as I don't have a credit card, but if you click on the 'donate' button on the right hand side of this page, it takes you to paypal and below the 'log in' to p/pal it says 'if you don't have a paypal a/c you can use these credit cards and then lists them.

Comment by Aprile on March 7, 2017 at 11:09pm
Um... you mean instead of PayPal, really?
Comment by Bev Jeffery on March 7, 2017 at 10:57pm

Hi Aprile. No worries.  :)) 

They do have credit card, I think, if that's suitable for you.  :))

Comment by Aprile on March 7, 2017 at 10:51pm
Hi Bev. I can PayPal. I just don't like it, because I recently found a security issue. And because they had stopped the regular KAS payments, but I only found out accidentally. However I'll assume it was a one-off.... I would've paid by eftpost if that was still available... thanks for the offer of accepting cheques Bev, but it's ok, I'll go back to PayPal..... ta anyway!

Hi Aprile.

K-A-Square no longer has an Australian a/c to deposit into. Helen, one of our US mods accepts American cheques that she then banks and then paypals to Ronda in South Africa, as does Louise in the UK. I am happy to do this for anyone in Oz who is unable to paypal. If anyone would like to donate in this way, you can pm me and I will send you my address. When it is sent to Ronda, I can then send you her paypal receipt of your donation.

Comment by Aprile on March 7, 2017 at 8:24pm
Is there an Australian address we can send cheques to? Or even better, an Australian bank account we could deposit into? Thanks!
